Advisors, mentors, consultants…the name for a veteran homeschooler, or someone else well-versed in homeschooling, who is willing to spend time with new/interested families.
An advisor is not the teacher. The parent is the teacher, and the advisor aids the parent in beginning their homeschooling journey.
There are compensated and uncompensated advisors….it is important in your search to ask a few pertinent questions, such as:
- How much homeschooling experience do you have?
- Do you charge? If so, how much?
- Are you available throughout the year?
- What will you provide for me? support group contacts, etc?
- What is your teaching philosophy? Can you explain different ones to me?
We do not endorse any of the advisors listed. Each individual should determine compatibility with the advisor, based on family needs and expectations.
Below is a list of uncompensated advisors who will spend some time answering questions, helping with paperwork, and giving general homeschooling information.
For those new homeschooling parents who feel they need a little more time and in depth answers, a paid advisor can be beneficial. The following portion is comprised of paid advisors.
