Ask a Homeschooled Kid
Homeschooling is a great opportunity to spend time with your kids while they're still young. It's also great for fostering independent thinking, self-motivation and discipline, and good values. Many people are interested in homeschooling their kids but want to know more.
I can answer any and all questions you may have about homeschooling from the kid's perspective.
We can talk about curriculums I used, learning math and science, religion's role in homeschooling, social activities I was a part of, SAT/ACTs/APs, getting into college as a homeschooled kid, and anything else you can think of.
We can talk on the phone or though Skype for 30 minutes, chat through an app such as Line or plain SMS for 5 questions, or you can email me up to 5 questions and I can answer thoughtfully and thoroughly for you. I'm flexible any way you want to do it!
Training & Qualifications
I was homeschooled from the age of 4 until 17 by a single mom. Those years will always be a fond memory, especially when it comes to spending time with my mother and sister, learning ice skating and swimming, and doing schoolwork at my own pace.
In my senior year of high school I applied to 16 colleges and got into 14, including Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, Renssalaer Polytechnic Institute, and the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign. I received a full-tuition scholarship to a top ten engineering school.
Currently I am in my third year of college, studying computer science in a co-op based school. I am on the Dean's List and work several hours a week at the campus tutoring center.
