Dear Homeschool Mom.com was created to address a number of educational needs for parents.

Consulting, including professional development, is offered for school districts, private schools, charter schools, childcares and businesses whose interest is in supporting children and families.

“So I Want To Homeschool, So Now What?”
This 2-hour program is for families who want to homeschool their children and need to know the steps to take to make this goal a reality. Parents will spend time discussing every component of homeschooling to best meet the needs of their family. Parents who opt for this package will receive:
1-on-1 homeschool coaching & planning
Priority e-mail Q&A/phone assistance throughout initial homeschooling year
Complimentary Annual Portfolio Review
Portfolio Assessment Review Options
Homeschooling is unique in that every family dynamic yields specific educational dynamics. This may range from parents opting to take breaks every 6-9 weeks, while others keep going with no start or end point in mind. DHSM is able to meet each family’s needs by providing specific Pre-Portfolio Assessment Reviews for parents each quarter so parents do not have to wait until the end of the year to provide a compilation of all student work to the assessment table. Instead, the review takes place when the family breaks and reflects on the year to date. At the end of the year, the last review of the year will take place without the need to go over an entire year all at once. All other reviews within the year will be discussed, goals set for the next year and copies of all reviews shared with parents for their reference.
