Sophia Homeschool

How to get started homeschooling...

Teacher training for homeschool parents

Six weeks of training to prepare you to be their best teacher ever.

Homeschooling your children can be one of the most rewarding things you can do. But if you're new to it, you might not know where to start.

  • Which curriculum or method do you use?
  • How do you maintain educational standards?
  • Do I need certain credentials?

All good questions, but we believe that you, yes you are already the best educator for your children because you are their parent.

However, like anything else in life, it takes training. That's where Sophia Homeschool can help.

About Sophia Homeschool

Starting a home school can be a daunting experience if you're brand-new to it. As an educational option, it's grown immensely since its early days. And with this growth came a bewildering number of resources and curricula.

We're Christopher and Judith Jolma. We're a homeschooling couple with four children, and the Sophia Homeschool project is our way of helping people navigate the potentially turbulent waters beginning homeschoolers face.

Sophia Homeschool is an online classroom designed to teach integrated skills that will equip you to be the best home educator you can be. In fact, we believe that with the right training, you can do so much more than simply homeschool out of necessity. You can design a custom education that is exactly what your child needs for a happy and productive life.

But you can’t do it alone. No matter what you do in life you need skills and training in order to do it well. Homeschooling is no different. We believe that parents are hungry for teacher training designed for the home educator.

The dizzying menu of curriculum and method options available can be intimidating. But in all our experience we have learned one thing ---  YOU are the best curriculum for your children.
