SUPPORT GROUPS, CO-OPS, CLASSES, TUTORS

Find social groups, supplemental classes, co-ops, and tutors to help you on your homeschool journey.
NNHS does not support or endorse any group, class, or tutor, but rather provides a list of available resources that may help you as an additional resource.

If you don't see a group in your area, consider starting one! It can be simple, like meeting at a park every week (we recommend starting off by meeting at the same time, place, and day each week to get the group going); or it can be more complex, like a co-op offering classes. Please email your group information or class/tutoring info to northernnevadahomeschools@gmail.com

PARK DAYS

NNHS publishes this list as a convenience and resource for our homeschool community. These are not official NNHS sanctioned events, they are opportunities for homeschool moms to connect with other homeschool moms and kids to play together. We encourage you to take safety precautions of wearing masks and playing games that will keep the kids 6 feet apart from one another. Please see a list of ideas for play apart together games after the list of park days.

I am a preK-12 multiple subject tutor, specializing in writing instruction. I provide semi-private, small group educational services in my South Lake Tahoe home-based classroom, as well as individual in person and virtual tutoring using zoom, Google docs, FaceTime, phone calls and email in Tahoe and beyond. 


I have homeschooled my own boys who earn a scholarship to Berkeley and University of San Diego. They both graduated valedictorian. I have 11 years of experience providing services for students enrolled in Visions In Education, Inspire Charter Schools, and Clarksville Charter School. I also tutor public and independentLy educated students. I will become a vendor for Cottonwood Charter School beginning this fall. My tutoring rate is $25/hr with a reduced rate for semi-private tutoring.

Resource for families, parents, and a conduit for providing individualized learning/instruction for homeschooled students and families. I academically coach students and mentor parents each step of the way. Academic coaching modal involves teaching in multiple content areas: including Reading, Math, and Writing while scaffolding this growth with organization and empowerment. I can administer assessments DRA/Singapore Math to help further guide homeschool instruction. It is my pleasure to provide mentorship and collaboration with homeschooling families needing further support with our diverse learners. I am dually certified in K-8th and Special Education / Gifted  K-12. I currently hold a valid Nevada teacher's license and additionally have a business license as well. I continue to share 30 years plus of passionate teaching with students and families here in Washoe County.
