Homeschool Help in the Peel Region

I am a registered teacher who also has qualifications and experience as an Education Assistant for children with Special Needs. I am currently providing individual tutoring for some students after school several days a week and I would love to expand my business to include tutoring homeschooled children and/or providing assistance to parents during school hours. I live just south of Mandurah so I'm happy to travel within the Peel Region. I charge $50 an hour and generally deliver a one hour session once a week, but could do more if necessary.

Looking for other homeschooling groups around swan valley area? Family with 4 kids :)

Hi my name is Kara and I have 4 children (2 boys and 2 girls) ages 10, 8, 6 and 2. My son who is 8 has always stuggled with school and now being in year 3 is just being left behind, whilst my other 2 are actually bored because they are advanced in class - answer homeschooling!

feeling the pull

 Hi there, I too live in the hillary's area. 

My two girls, 6 and 4 go to a wonderful school, and with great families. BUT i can't help feel the stress of school, for both for me and the girls, is pulling our family apart. I love learning with my children and feel learning to be a good family member is just as important as anything else. i could go on and on, thus is why im here. i guess i just worry about their education and future. the big question for me, "AM I BEING SELFISH?'
