Homeschooling Choices - Pros and Cons

            In an earlier BLOG I wrote about homeschooling choices for parents. It seems that each has its strong points and some weak points.
            I currently am working with a girl who is homeschooling with the Irvine School district outreach program. Her curriculum is nearly the same as the Irvine Public School curriculum. I am working with her in math. Her homeschooling came about last year, as she was slowly shutting down in her want to go to school and having an especially hard time in math. Her ever so smart mom, noticed this and this year put her in a homeschool program to help the situation.
          She works with me about 4 hours a week, on her math. We have made great strides in a short amount of time. We have reviewed most of 4th grade, as there were some parts of that grade that were not understood so well. We have also made great progress into 5th grade, even though we take our time and review each concept as much as is needed. She has her worksheets to take home with her, that she can turn into her program supervisor as needed.
           I chatted with her some about her homeschooling program and she told me about her study schedule. She said that she studies about 3 hours a day or so and goes to different classes, like science, where other homeschooling children go. She really likes those classes. Her mom turns in work each week from all her subjects. She told me that she takes tests, through the public school system, twice a year. She said that the tests were on computer, as are the tests of students in regular public school.
          I guess the best part of her homeschooling and her situation is that, according to her mom, she had basically had a meltdown in school, and now the situation has changed. She easily went into her other subjects, but math was a continuing problem. She had basically REFUSED to do MATH! Much to my JOY and her mom's, she is now happily doing math with me and telling mom she really enjoys coming to do her math! Mom was very relieved, to say the least! This girl is a 5th grader, and is doing very well, at last!
           As I said earlier, each program has their pros and cons. The pros in this case, are, that the student is no longer in huge jeopardy of failing and feeling like school is HORRIBLE! She is winning and is happy with herself. Life is good again!  The cons - have to take tests a couple of times a year, not so bad! Still learning some Common Core curriculum, but not so overwhelming! In this student's case, the pros definitely outweigh the con's!
           I would love to hear from you! I am always happy to answer any questions. I can be reached at the email below.

With Love,
Patt Condiotti
