homeschooling is a great option!

Every child has the option to pursue homeschooling courses in their district whether part-time or full-time. Homeschooling a course outside of school can develop much needed expertise in a subject to not only get the grade, but to get ahead in school. 


With the help of our experienced tutors and an amazing, affordable program we use called Schoolhouse Teachers, we can help your child excel in their academics by customizing courses to meet the individual needs of each student. If you are looking to gain credits for a course your child has taken with us, please check with your school for the application process.

We are committed to helping students become confident and successful learners. Our team looks forward to helping your child achieve their academic goals through the many avenues we offer.

In our programs, your child will gain unparallel confidence and capitalize on their expertise, intelligence, character, and readiness for college and career success. All courses have live instruction whether in-person in our Downtown Oswego location, or online conveniently via Zoom. 

are our homeschool programs accredited?

Simple answer is NO, because we are not a school, but a tutoring company. We offer personalized instruction to teach your child the particular courses you choose to gain expertise in a shorter period of time with a higher level of expertise.


Online courses do offer accreditation, but those courses do not offer personalized learning and are often boring for kids. Accredited courses can also limit the freedom in teaching and this would not make sense since they already come with their own online, pre-recorded instructor. Honestly, online education for foundational courses taught in Junior High through High School could jeopardize a student's clear and depthful knowledge of a subject. This is the main reason we use the affordable programs from Schoolhouse Teachers. Saving money allows you to hire us and give your child live, exceptional tutoring so they receive the best education and academic foundation. 


With that said, all of these courses are eligible to transfer to your public or private school. With the help of pre-organized lesson plans provided, we will create a portfolio of your child's work to submit to your school to earn credits for graduation requirements. 


Please feel confident you have options to help your child succeed academically whether full time, in-school or using us for part-time homeschool support. The goal of every educator should be to help children in our community to succeed academically, while feeling mentally and emotionally supported in whatever format helps them.

All homeschooled course credits are eligible to transfer to your public or private school. Call your school directly to ask about their requirements. 

Traditionally, when homeschooling the parent would be the teacher. In this case, you are consulting us to do the teaching. Homeschool is on the rise and it is because of the great benefit to our kids. As a homeschooling mom myself, my kids gained so much more knowledge in a fraction of the time with personalized learning. If you feel your child would benefit from such an opportunity, please give us a call today and let's think about the options. 

SchoolHouse Teachers

If you decide to homeschool a particular course, you will notify your child's school that they will be homeschooled for the particular course. We lean on a company called to provide the basic framework for many of the classes we offer, which will provide the school with the proper paperwork they need. We will never limit your child's growth to one set of worksheets and will always offer them an opportunity to level up if they are ready. Because of this freedom, our students break the boundaries and your child will learn so much more in a shorter period of time.

If you are interested in chatting with us about the possibilities and how it can help your child, please don't hesitate to contact Tika directly at 630-440-1244.
