Homeschool Consulting Services
I am often approached for homeschooling advice. As much as I love helping, it takes quite some time to sincerely and thoroughly discuss an issue. To ensure I spend enough time with my own family and carve out enough time for you, I am offering scheduled homeschool consulting services.
I am able to meet with you via phone or Skype for $15 per half hour. For those local to Central KY, I am able to meet in person for $20 per half hour. (“In person” means at my home or within 20 miles of my home.)
To schedule an appointment, send me an email with an overview of your circumstances. Include three or more suggested times (EST) for our meeting. I will reply with your appointment time and payment information.

Getting Started in Homeschooling
I’m a 14-year veteran of homeschooling and mom of three. I own Shining Dawn Books and have written Homeschooling Gifted and Advanced Learners and the popular NaturExplorers studies, among other titles. With a Master’s Degree in education, I often teach workshops on a variety of topics, most focusing on homeschooling with joy, passion and creativity. My personal teaching style is eclectically Charlotte Mason, with a dash of unit studies and Classical thrown in for good measure. I believe that, no matter the teaching style, children should be inspired in learning. God has created such a marvelous world for us to learn about and we should be excited to dive in. Yes, even math and grammar!
Consulting for Homeschool Curriculum Companies
As a professional educator and a veteran homeschool mom who has reviewed well over 100 homeschool products, I am happy to offer private critiques and feedback about homeschool curriculum.
I am also willing to consider public reviews of homeschool curriculum if the product is something I would actually use in my homeschool and I feel my readers would benefit from a review.
Rates are very fair, but will vary according to your needs. Please contact me for more information.
“I was so excited when I read that Cindy was offering homeschool counseling. I have needed a resource like this for a while, and to find someone I know and trust was a plus! I sent an email briefly describing the issues we were having, and when she called at our appointed time we were able to get right to work. She has a wonderful knowledge of curriculum and learning styles to assist you in pin-pointing what might work for you. What a blessing it was to spend time speaking with Cindy about a plan for next year!”
Susie, Veteran Homeschool Mom
“Cindy gives excellent advice for curriculum. She is full of wisdom and passion for teaching at home. She is humble. Even though she is a terrific teacher she never passes judgement on those of us who aren’t as blessed with the teaching skills. She is full of ideas for making learning fun and enjoyable.”
