but, you're afraid to implement it into your homeschool. You know your kids could handle it and would love it, but, you feel stuck following standardized education methods and using curriculums that don't quite fit your child's learning style, all in the name of "making sure they're ready for life," and "getting the basics." Meanwhile, this is all counterintuitive and slowing down your child's progress for the real high stakes - self-driven lifelong love of learning.
The endless conveyor belt of curriculum is killing your desire to teach and your child's love or any desire for learning. You're tired of trying one curriculum after another that's failing you and your child across much of or all of your academics. Your kids are dreading every minute of their homeschool work and lack motivation.
Saving your homeschool depends on you and your child finding your tailored groove as child self-directed or unschooling that excites, motivates, and gives your child a personal sense of empowerment in their education with real learning outcomes. Their learning won't result in just another quiz or test grade in your grade book, but rather, tangible evidence your kids demonstrate through real life, showing you and themselves that they're learning!
Leading Homeschool & Teaching companies trust in NatureGlo's eScience
All children are born with a natural curiosity and burning drive to learn about the world around them. Through the standards based mainstream education's "one size fits all," so many children's natural curiosity and drive for learning gets squashed. Teaching and learning to the test, doing endless workbooks becomes humdrum, disinteresting and so many children sadly lose their natural curiosity and desire to learn anything. Are you ready to ditch the compulsory methods such as grades, tests, workbooks and rigorous curriculum that doesn't tailor to your child's learning style and needs?

Once upon a time, I was a frustrated K - 12 teacher burdened by academic bureaucracy I encountered in private schools. I liberated my teaching by walking away from "shackled teaching and learning" and "teaching to the test" by becoming an independent online teacher serving the homeschool community. I transitioned from being a hampered progressive alternative educator, to serving like-minded homeschoolers and unschoolers.
With a BA in K - 12 ed, certificates from the Wilderness Awareness school, and over 20 years of private school and homeschool online teaching experience, I've had the privilege of teaching thousands of students around the globe. I've taught most academic subjects but particularly fell in love with teaching science and seeing math connections everywhere around us all without the usual mainstream educational confines of compulsory grades, testing, subject divisions and standards based curriculum.
Now I get to focus on what I love doing the most - coaching and mentoring struggling homeschoolers helping them create a streamlined, peaceful and successful homeschool experience by transitioning into child self-directed learning also called Intentional Unschooling.
"Gloria covers the content in a professional, advanced, scientific, yet understandable way. I wondered at first if my junior high and elementary students could follow along. But Gloria combines common language and scientific language beautifully, so that elementary kids can understand the basics and older kids can be introduced to more advanced scientific terminology."

"My children have taken several months’ worth of NatureGlo's science classes with Gloria Brooks - studying both herpetology and deep sea marine biology. As a parent, I love both the provided structure and the flexibility that the courses offer. I was able to easily adapt the activities to accommodate my elementary, middle, and high school aged children."

My Marine Biology student, Ashlyn, chose to do this original "MathArt" Leatherback sea turtle exhibiting beautiful mathematical patterns using Zentangle techniques for the left-hand side of the turtle's leathery shell. This is an example of one of many non-compulsory projects my students have done for my online classes.
