AHEM talks on homeschooling in Massachusetts
We are available to talk about how homeschooling works in Massachusetts. Our presentation, "Why Homeschool" answers common questions about homeschooling, and leaves time for questions and answers. Handouts are included. Topics covered include reasons to homeschool, different learning styles, different methods of homeschooling, teaching what you don't know, finances, socialization, coping with criticism, the unconvinced spouse, finding resources and materials (including the library of course!), college, finding support and legality/Massachusetts guidelines.
We always enjoy meeting with people interested in homeschooling in Massachusetts. If you would like to host a gathering, contact us to find a mutually agreeable time, and publicize the event to local homeschoolers.
