How to Get your Homeschooler Ready for College – Ep 18

Homeschooling isn’t new and there are parents who are achieving lots of success and fulfillment while teaching their children but what about getting ready for college? If I were to have a an official homeschool mom that I look up to, it would be Eva Wilson. Eva is a Caribbean Blogger and homeschool mom. She homeschooled her children for about 9 years. While homeschooling she achieved success personally and as an educator. What I’ve always admired most about Eva, as a homeschool mom, is that she seemed so knowledgable, confident, and carefree like she had reached homeschool “zen,” if there is such a thing.

In today’s discussion, Eva shares how she helped her eldest child go from a homeschool student to a college student. Thank you, Eva, for sharing your candid wisdom on how get a homeschooler ready for college with the CleverlyChanging Podcast audience.
