Homeschooling Activities
To Make Learning Fun

Homeschooling works – and as one of the very few second generation families taught at home myself I'm hoping to be able to use my experience to show you how.

For me, teaching my children at home was the natural choice because that's exactly what my parents did.

Homeschooling success stories - my homeschool son

STOP PRESS! My homeschool son William has just graduated summa cum laude with a First Class Degree from Oxford University.

O.K. – maybe that makes me a bit biased, but it also gives me the confidence to know that your kids will thrive without school.

I have used my experience and suggestions from more than 12,000 homeschoolers to create lots of useful stuff which will really help you on your journey.

The Courageous Homeschooling Handbook on how to home school

I'm excited to announce the second Courageous Homeschooling Handbook on How to Homeschool is published on Amazon. Working out how to homeschool can feel very daunting and scary when your child's future is at stake.

What method will you use? How much structure do you need? What about a timetable? Which curriculum is best? (and do you need one?).

It all feels like a leap in the dark – and one where others are only too happy to pounce with critical remarks. Hanging round in the back of your mind will be worries about whether you can do this, what if you let your child down and whether they will get the qualifications they need.

Thankfully, this book has the answers. Drawing on the collective wisdom of over 2,000 homeschoolers from all over the world, the Courageous Homeschooling Handbook shows you how things work in other families so you can choose what would suit your child best.

Meanwhile, let's celebrate all that homeschooling offers.

What's clear is that teaching your child at home enables you to achieve the highest academic standards if that's your goal.

More importantly, you have the ability in your hands to sow the seeds for a happy, creative and fulfilled young person.
