Welcome to Homeschool Coaching from 7Sisters Homeschool!
Would you like a “big sister” homeschooling veteran to come alongside you?
Would it build your confidence? Help you overcome a challenge? Re-ignite your passion for homeschooling?
Could it help you achieve more success in your family’s homeschool program or your community homeschool group?
Here are some FAQs to help explain homeschool coaching and get you started.
What is coaching?
- Coaching is actually mentoring. Our coaches work as mentors to help you realize your homeschooling goals. As part of this process we will work with you to find your strengths, resources, and ideas to help your children’s education.
- We also work with you to help you develop your local homeschool group.
How does coaching work?
- When you meet with your coach (by video chat ideally – Zoom or Skype, or by phone if you need a voice-only option), you will tell about yourself, your family, and how you homeschool (or how your group works).
- Then you explain what you would like to work on. You might want to concentrate on an area where things aren’t going well in your individual homeschool (or are going well but you’d like it to go better).
- Or perhaps you’d like to work on forming or improving a homeschool co-op, support group, umbrella school, or group classes.
- Your coach will work with you to develop or discover resources, devise goals and plans for positive and powerful results.

- Counseling or therapy. Coaching is a support relationship, not a therapeutic relationship. SO, no one is going to analyze you or treat you like you have a defect or illness.
- Bossing you around. You will not have a coach tell you “do this or else”. You choose what you want to do toward your own goals.
What we promise:
- We promise to treat you with respect, to view your homeschool glitches as things waiting for a solution- not as overwhelming problems, to believe in you and God’s plans for your family, to do our best to help you find resources and ideas to have a great homeschool experience.
