Home School – Consulting – Testing – High School Transcripts – Tutoring

I am a trained teacher and school counselor; and a home school mom of fifteen years.  I have worked both in private and public schools.  After graduating our youngest daughter from our home school high school in 2006, I dedicated myself to encouraging and helping parents who choose to home school.

I offer educational consulting/counseling.  I will answer your questions about education and I will help you determine the best educational choice for your child.  I will be happy to meet with you in person or arrange a phone meeting.

I offer testing:

Achievement – Educational Testing

Cognitive Ability – Intelligence Quotient or IQ Testing

Neuropsychological – Sensory and Motor Testing

I offer help with creating High School Transcripts

My daughter Allison (Nikkel) Hughes has joined me in offering Achievement Testing and Tutoring.

Allison earned a BS in Biomedical Science and she is very good at helping your child in the areas of math and reading.

We look forward to helping you accomplish the task of teaching your children at home confidently and successfully.
