modern parents, city living, global learning
Education is as much about relationships, wellness and our environment as it is about school and learning. Lifestyle, family, community, and respectful communication are at the center.
These innovative programs offer personal connection that makes 1:1 coaching so powerful with the convenience, speed and reflective potential of email-correspondence. Lifestyle programs help parents and families navigate all aspects of the unique living and learning frustrations of homeschooling - balancing work and homeschooling, roadschooling (traveling long-term with kids), forming a homeschool co-op, and the learning environment. Each program delivers a dedicated area of focus for relatively short periods of time and is appropriate for all - from newbies to seasoned homeschoolers who want to up their game.
Firsthand Teaching + Learning About the World
A comprehensive coaching program for home/unschooling families who want to take the life and learning on the road.
As an expat, I totally get the allure of taking your family and homeschooling on the road. As an advocate for "experiencing" the world, I fully encourage first-hand cultural exploration and integration. Moving city or country is by no means an endeavor to be taken lightly. Homeschooling aside, the emotional and social transition can shake you to the core and a stress that you never imagined can put a dent in the la-la-land vision you had in mind. This program is 100% proactive planning. We'll go through the practical, personal and cultural aspects of extended roadschooling. Whether you are staying stateside or moving abroad, I'll assist you with strategies to connect to local schools, tap into local resources and craft a program that maximizes your new environment and community. We'll also look at ways to document the roadschool adventure in a meaningful and educational manner. Lastly, We'll touch on the return home. This program is a must before you pack your bags!

URBAN HOME +
Design a place to live and learn.
A parent to parent coaching program designed to have your home feeling clean, healthy, beautiful, kid-friendly & homeschool purposeful in under 30 days!
Whether your home is in a brownstone, condo, walk-up, or a house in the city, are you ready for it to also serve as classroom, study hall and tinkering station? As city dwellers, I encourage you to take advantage of the vast metropolis - the museums, parks, neighborhoods, libraries, community centers and extra-curricular activities. Yet, truth be told, you’ll likely spend a significant amount of your homeschooling time at home - either in preparation or as the site of a learning engagement. This program will help you transform your living space into a vibrant learning environment.
With many other home rejuvenation programs, there is a tendency to focus on interior design, styling and purchasing more things that are not quite right. With URBAN HOME + SCHOOL ZEN, I focus on YOUR FAMILY, YOUR SPACE, YOUR LIFESTYLE.
