What is homeschool support?
-Due to the Covid-19 outbreak many families are faced with educating their children at home. During this time many schools are not equipped with the tools to do this. I am familiar with many programs and curricula that parents can utilize during this time. I will work with the parent/care giver to help set up a daily routine for school, make curriculum suggestions, and if desired follow up with weekly video meetings to discuss student progress and concerns.
What is a Reading Assessment?
-A reading assessment is a series of tests administered by a fully credentialed Reading Specialist. The test window usually is about an hour and the student being assessed will complete 7 or more tests depending upon level.
-After a reading assessment the parent/guardian will receive a full overview of the assessments through a verbal meeting and will also receive a full write-up of the assessment to share with teachers/tutors (usually within one week).
Do I offer tutoring?
No: however, I do have a great data base of licensed and experienced teachers who are happy to offer tutoring either online or in person.
Am I qualified to be a consultant?
Yes. As a licensed Oregon teacher and administrator I have over 14 years of teaching experience and training. I have first-hand experience with homeschooling, homeschool co-ops, public school teaching, and charter virtual school teaching.
Do I endorse any products?
I only endorse products that I know work and have used in the past and/or present. I am currently an employee of Baker Charter School, but am not using my consulting to push their program. I truly believe that there is a right fit out there for every child and family.
How much do I charge for consulting and assessments?
- Consulting prices can vary depending upon whether the focus is for one child/one issue, or for a group who would like many different scenarios covered. Please contact me via email with specific inquiries.
- Reading assessments are $70 per child (discounts for siblings). This includes the testing time, follow up parent meeting, and full write-up copy that can be shared with teachers.
Can I still receive services if I live outside of Grants Pass, Oregon?
Yes. I offer reading assessments and consulting services either through person, webcam, or by phone (though phone not recommended in most situations).
