arrow-down

You want the very best child self-directed education for your learner, but, it's just not quite coming together.


Giving children the choice of what they want to learn and the opportunity to direct their own education empowers them. It frees them to explore the online world and real world in deeper more meaningful ways. Learning becomes an adventure rather than a chore. What can unschool learners experience with NatureGlo's self-directed unschool? Students can experience weekly social learning interactions in a growing and thriving rich community with other unschoolers and homeschoolers. Homeschoolers that are unschool friendly are invited to join in too! 


Does this describe you?

  • 1
    YOU WANT TO DROP THE CURRICULUM
    You're tired of forcing your child to do curriculum they hate doing. They're stuck, disinterested and disengaged with their learning. No more spending hours slogging through the latest boring curriculum. It's time for real life learning!
  • 2
    YOU WOULD LIKE A MORE RELAXED PACE 
    You and your learner are tired of keeping up with the homeschool Jones' constantly running out to the next co-op or book club. You would like to have a more relaxed at-home learning pace. 
  • 3
    YOU'RE EITHER UNSCHOOLING OR WANT TO UNSCHOOL and you're feeling lost and afraid that you're failing your child and need more support.
  • 4
    YOU AND YOUR LEARNER WANT MORE SOCIAL INTERACTION with other unschoolers/homeschoolers.
  • 5
    YOU WANT TO GO ALL IN WITH SELF-DIRECTED EDUCATION but the thought of doing state reporting around what your learner chooses intimidates you.
  • 6
    YOU'RE A HOMESCHOOL PARENT THAT'S NOT READY TO completely do away with the curriculum but are interested in participating in an unschool community, learn about unschooling and allow your child to enjoy interacting in a child-self-directed learning environment.

Thankfully, you can achieve these now.

Meet Gloria Brooks


Hi, I'm Gloria, aka "NatureGlo",  founder and facilitator of NatureGlo's eScience (NeS), an unschool or self-directed eLearning center. Since 2011, I've been helping homeschool children guide their learning.

I hold a BA in K - 12 education with over 20 years experience teaching grade school students in various educational settings. My progressive learning methods and strategies have been a driving force in creating NeS and transitioning into an online unschool solution for so many struggling homeschool families looking for a more meaningful educational experience for their children. 


I decided to take all of my educational knowledge and progressive experiences and use them to help homeschool families like you achieve success in student self-directed education.

"Zac really enjoyed this class (Herps Zoology: Mole Salamanders, Children's Python & Galapagos Tortoise). Zoology"..

Ingrid Dick (Homeschool mom)

"My hatred of math stemmed mostly from a learning disability called dyscalculia..."

“The more I learn in MathArt, the more I realize the infinite number of ways math can be used. I have absolutely despised math since I was old enough to add and subtract; therefore, math has always been a cold, empty, meaningless subject to me.

My hatred of math stemmed mostly from a learning disability called dyscalculia, which interferes with awareness of concepts such as numerical values, memorization of facts, measurements, ability to tell time, and distinction between left and right. My favorite subjects in school have always been the arts and natural sciences. When I began taking the MathArt class, I learned that my most beloved and hated subjects were not opposites, but intertwined. I'd never viewed math in that light before and it has helped me greatly in all three subjects."

Megan B. (2016 MathArt homeschool student)
