“This [virtual] class has highlighted the benefits of group instruction, and the positive difference that an outside teacher can make on a homeschool student. Ms. Kyra’s role as a teacher and a guide has been very helpful to us. My son is a reluctant writer, and this class offered me a chance to play a supportive / cheerleading role with him and his writing, as opposed to being his primary instructor. He enjoyed hearing from his classmates and receiving their feedback on his writing, as well. He made friends and was able to find enjoyment in aspects of the writing process, even though he might still insist that he doesn’t like writing. I can’t imagine us accomplishing on our own what he has been able to do in the course of this class. I’m very pleased with our experience.” M. Magee-Kakouras
