Ever had that one thing that you are really good at and absolutely love? For me, it’s always been teaching. So, it seemed like a no-brainer to get an education degree and join the others as a classroom teacher.
But after just a couple of years, I realized that the classroom gig was not the right fit for me, so I took a deep breath and launched out into the land of private tutoring…
And discovered that I absolutely loved it and was really good at it! My students learned how to master multiplication and solve tricky word problems. They started reading – voraciously – and really understanding what they read. Their test-taking skills improved by leaps and bounds.
It was a win-win, and I thought that I had found my only niche…
Until I discovered the additional world of homeschooling,
And realized that this world was going to be the best educational fit for my family.
I dived into homeschooling my two children all the way from elementary through high school. I created curriculums and taught in various co-ops, and began helping other homeschooling families with consultations and evaluations.
I made some mistakes, and also some really smart choices. And I just can’t wait to share with you everything I have learned along the way.
So, here I am, over 25 years later, excited to help you and your family in your academic journey.
Whether you need individualized tutoring, solid homeschooling advice, or just some really helpful educational tips for your family,
I’m here for you and I can’t wait to help you make your journey less stressful and more successful. You can do this. I can help!

I highly recommend Heather for any educational tutoring.”
