Homeschool Consultation

Homeschooling is both tough and a rewarding journey.Whether you’ve already started or are about to transition, there are a lot of homeschooling groups out there for you, but here at Edge Consulting, our system of Whole Child teaching is revolutionary and is a new approach to engagement.

Ready to find out the answers to how your child can effectively learn in the comfort of your homes?

We will start by looking at what is going right and what you consider is going wrong. We will then help you make realistic goals and then set them up with systems and tools to meet those goals. We will be with you every step of the way until you achieve your goals.

Classroom Training

A classroom setting can be less effective especially when the students’ different needs are not properly assessed. We have the right strategies to teach the whole child so educators can build a relationship with each student that encourages them to be their very best.

We work closely with teachers and administrators to have the right mindset of Whole Child teaching – a journey to revolutionary education.

Who We Serve

Homeschooling Families

Getting the child to engage in their learning is one of the challenges of homeschooling. As parents, we want to raise our children with high character with a say in their education. But how do you know what and how to teach? Let us show you the techniques to assess your whole child so you can be more confident in homeschooling while allowing them to grow in understanding and enjoy the process.

Current Educators

Handling a group of students in the same room with different abilities can lead to lack of apathy. It is an educator’s goal to meet their students needs beyond the curriculum. With the right techniques, you will feel more confident in your ability to teach your class and assess your students’ actual level instead of using the predetermined levels due to age or grade. Start this journey with us.

Discover a New Approach to Education

Homeschooling can be a great option for families who have struggled with traditional school environments, or or those who are looking for additional academic challenges. If you’re ready to take control of your child’s education, get in touch with our team today.

What’s My Story?

My son was getting left behind in the public school system. As a 1st grader with undiagnosed inattentive ADHD, Executive Functioning Disorder, Dysgraphia, and Anxiety, he struggled to stay on task and complete assignments. He was quiet and not a distraction in the classroom, yet everything was a distraction to him. He would lose time, not realizing he had been playing with the drawstring in his shorts for the last thirty minutes.

I didn’t even know he struggled until an entire grading period passed.While waiting for the pediatrician to approve him to see a specialist for ADHD, two more school years went by. He began to get further and further behind. Finally, at the beginning of 4th grade, we had a diagnosis. By this time, my son was struggling, frustrated, and starting to hate school and everything it represented. He deserved to learn, feel confident, and grow like every other student.

Instead of sending my son to 6th grade, I started schooling him at home. I decided to have a voice for my child and his education. The number of curriculum options was overwhelming, there was no perfect solution. I needed to meet my son where he was academically. I threw out all the preconceived notions of what grade he was going into and instead assessed each of the skills he should have mastered before 6th grade. I researched and created a curriculum that filled in the deficiencies and addressed his particular learning styles and ability.

After just one year of homeschooling, he exceeded all of the growth goals set for him, and has a new level of confidence in his ability. Based on the county-required assessment, he is now in the 99th percentile for math, 67th percentile for language and 96th percentile for reading comprehension. When we started, he was reading and comprehending at a 2nd-grade level. These numbers were astounding, and a direct result of the curriculum I tailored for his unique needs.

How Can I Help You?

Is your child struggling and being left behind in traditional school? Are you fighting your child every day to get through the learning process? Are you exhausted, overwhelmed, and feeling out of options? I can help!

I am a certified teacher with traditional classroom and homeschooling experience. I have homeschooled my children, provided homeschool assessments, and spent countless hours advising homeschooling parents. I can help ease the frustration of homeschooling, help you meet your children where they are, and tailor a curriculum to their unique learning styles and needs. Together we can co-create a plan to set your child up to succeed.

Your Voice is Heard

Personalized and individual attention to their specific needs and goals.

An Agricultural and Cultural Immersion Experience in Cap-Haitien, Haiti, where students will spend 10 days learning traditional agricultural practices, completing hands-on field science assignments, attending Haitian Lecture Series Lectures, and participating in cultural experiences. This opportunity is open to college students who have completed at least one year of study at their respective University.

Students will spend their days working with local farmers on their land, working on the institutes farm Le Cultivateur, learning the native language of Haiti- Haitian Kreyol, completing field science assignments, engaging in lectures on Haitian History, Economics, Government, Agriculture and Sustainability, plus participating in excursions to experience the beauty of Haiti along with opportunities to be fully immersed in cultural experiences.

This unique experience will broaden the students’ views on different cultures along with providing a thought-provoking experience into the lives of the Haitian people. Students will gain real life work experience as an agricultural field scientist, gaining skills in farming practices, soil and water testing, environmental problem mitigation and initiative creation to move Haiti forward in Environmental Sustainability.

The 10-day program will enhance the knowledge and skills learned in the classroom with interactive problem-solving activities and experiences. Students will work directly with local farmers to understand the daily challenges they face, while collaborating to create and implement solutions. The students will act as content experts on new techniques while the farmer will be the content experts on traditional farming practices all guided by our Environmental Chemist and our Agronomist. Through mutual agreement of overall goals, the farmer and student will analyze, plan, and execute processes and procedures that will minimize current issues while maximizing yield.
