Homeschooling can be very challenging, even frightening, to a parent new to educating their children at home. Even veteran homeschool parents come across new challenges. We all need some guidance every now and then.
I am very passionate about homeschooling and love sharing what I have learned during my 20 plus years of teaching my four children at home. How may I help you today?
Because of my years of experience and owning Yellow House Book Rental, I am often approached for homeschooling advice and I love it! I have learned a great deal through trial and error over the years.
You are important! Each and every family and homeschool situation is unique, and giving you my best takes time as I talk with you to learn about and discuss your homeschooling needs and questions. Our time may require additional research on my part so that I can equip you with links to sites and curriculum that may benefit you. In order to give you the time you deserve, I offer scheduled phone consultations. (See details below for prices and discounts available)
One hour is usually enough to examine most issues. If not, we can schedule more time after the initial phone conversation. During this hour, we can discuss, curriculum questions, scheduling, teaching multiple ages, home management, parenting and discipline in the homeschooling life. Encouraging, and supporting will always be my ultimate goal. All conversations will be, of course, completely confidential.
Fortunately, there are many resources available to homeschoolers in facing and resolving questions and challenges. After that one hour session, I would be happy to share those with you by putting together and sending you an email, with information and links to resources and curriculum that will specifically meet your needs and wants for your homeschool (at no extra charge)

I am a 20-year homeschool veteran of four and the owner and founder of Yellow House Book Rental. I have enjoyed leading homeschool groups as well as teaching homeschool co-op classes and workshops.
Although my preferred style of teaching is eclectic, I have been known to add some unit studies here and there. I believe that every child is unique, God’s beautiful and wonderful handiwork. With uniqueness comes individual learning styles. Knowing how your child ticks, their strengths, and weaknesses are key to making homeschool a success. Whether your child is a gifted learner or struggles in many areas, I would love to encourage you and help you find what's best for your homeschool. I look forward to talking with you.

"I met Michelle at church and we became members of the same newly birthed homeschool group back in 2006. Michelle has a gift when it comes to homeschooling and is selfless with helping others.
Through the years, I have been a beneficiary of her talent, whether is was in person or via social media. Recently, I reached out to her for guidance regarding high school education. I had just moved back from living out of state for a couple of years and learned that there were several differences in the requirements of each state. I also had difficulty in deciding what curriculum to purchase next for my growing, changing boys. She was a TREMENDOUS help in alleviating much of my confusion and clarified for me in plain, understandable language what things I needed to know now. She was encouraging in a way that communicated to me that I know my children best, while imparting much needed wisdom in directing me to look into some of the things and services she has used over the years for her four children that have been a blessing to them all. She also shared with me information about curriculum that didn’t work for her children while weaving in positive experiences by homeschooling friends, so that I could visualize both sides and decide what will work for my own children. In all, I have chosen four things / services this school year per her recommendation and trust that I will not be disappointed."

Working with Michelle, of The Yellow House Book Rental was a wonderful and very informative experience. I have always known that I wanted to homeschool my children, but how to do so was a whole other topic. After ten years of homeschooling, I still felt lost and confused! That changed after my consultation with Michelle, and I am so grateful! Michelle calmed my nerves and helped me realize that I wasn't doing as horribly as I had been telling myself I was. She gave suggestions as to where I stand to improve and showed me steps in which I could easily do so with just a few changes to my current method.
The resources Michelle showed me were wonderful! My husband and I were in awe of all of the delightful resources we didn't know were available to us. We are excited to incorporate what we learned and add these new resources into our homeschooling.
Homeschooling has returned to the joyful, sacred experience I always knew it was meant to be.
Thank you, Michelle!
