“All children have the ability to be successful in school, but when students struggle academically, they lose confidence.”
“It’s natural for students to feel stressed with the start of the new school year,” notes Chad Schwartz, founder of Tutoring Club. “Parents should seek to understand where the anxiety may be coming from and start now to address it, especially when it results from gaps in academic skills of the previous year.”
“…Improving your child’s academic ability is one resolution that will provide positive benefits for you and your child through many years to come.”

The name says it all: homeschooling is teaching your child in the confines of your home. While this task may seem daunting for some, it isn’t for Justine Tajonera, a seasoned homeschooling parent.
