Homeschool Counselor


Since 1996, Classical Conversations has been helping parents homeschool through high school by providing parent training and weekly seminars. Parents have informally helped one another through graduation ceremonies, college applications, and resume building. In 2013, Classical Conversations began to offer advice on these topics on-line so that many more parents could benefit from the wisdom of those who have successfully navigated those waters.

Linda Tomkinson, the Homeschool Counselor Senior Advisor, currently offers free monthly webinars to equip parents and encourage homeschooling throughout high school. Both parents and students are invited to join in these helpful discussions, ask questions, get answers, and share ideas along with others in the Classical Conversations community.

Spring has arrived!  Join Linda Tomkinson, Senior Advisor for Homeschool Counselor, as we unearth analogies about how homeschooling is like gardening in this month’s series. Each meeting will have different emphasis and will stand alone. Part 1 will focus on “Moving toward Harvest in a Secure Environment” as we analogically discuss whether the statement “Homeschool Students are like Hothouse Plants” is a myth.

Part 2 will focus on Homeschooling within Culture where we will consider current conversations such as The Benedict Option, by Ron Dreher. Reading the book is not a requirement to attend, but you may want to hear or read some interviews about this idea before Part 2.

If you register for Part 1, you are registered for Part 2 and do not need to re-register. Your input is valuable. Your comments and insights in community are important. Be prepared to contribute as we dig deeper in our conversations. Discussion is within first hour, then additional Q & A.

Part 1 - Thursday, April 20, 2017 8:00 PM – 9:30 PM EDT

Part 2 - Thursday, April 27, 2017, 9:00 PM – 10:30 PM EDT
