Managing your Child's Education with TTK

Creating your plan for your child’s education is a bit like Goldilocks and the Three Bears; it can be too little, too much, or it may, if you are lucky, be just right. After homeschooling for so many years, I have accomplished all three. 

 

When I started managing my children’s education, I started by doing too much. When the children groaned, I stood my ground. They still reminisce about some of the drier parts of my plan; “Do you remember when Mom made us outline the history book? That was horrible.” My daughter has finished graduate school, and she still remembers this very boring assignment. I’ve tried it all, I’ve made my mistakes, and I have found that less is more. Going for quality rather than quantity is the answer. 

 

With TTK, we offer one intense hour of live interactive instruction in each subject each week. Along with that class comes assignments and sources which allow the students to dig deeper into the material. Our classes cover all the subjects, except Math, needed for a wholly educated child. **

One might think that one class is not enough, however, with online classes, we have no disciplinary issues, no interruptions, no busywork, and small classes (max of 12), all of which allows students to participate fully. The results: your child will have a quality education for a fraction of the price of private schools and other online academies.

 

Because your child’s education includes more than academic subjects it is important that we allow our children time to independently learn and explore, as well as exercise, help around the house, and play with friends. 

A Full and Beautiful Day of Learning

I encourage you to register your child for the full TTK program. As teachers, we work together to complement and balance each other's classes, customizing the TTK program to be just right for your child. Join us for the adventure! You will be glad you did!
