I very highly recommend having a consultation
with the Home School Resource Exchange! Not only
did the consultation save me time and stress in
choosing my home school curriculum, but it saved
me money. I had researched many different
materials and had an idea of what I liked but I
felt so overwhelmed with all the choices and I
was spending hours doing the research. I
know without obtaining Tammy's expertise in
selecting resources, I would have
"over-bought" and unknowingly chosen
materials which "overlapped" each
other. As a result of the time I spent
with Tammy during our consultation, I believe I
now have an educational plan and curriculum for
my daughter which is tailored directly to her
needs and to our family's needs.
Tammy gathered information
about my child - her strengths and her weaknesses
- as well as the goals I had for our home
schooling and our family. Then she made
recommendations for curriculum which best suited
our daughter and our family. Not only was I
was able to pre-view the materials, but I could
listen to the strengths and weaknesses of each as
per Tammy's personal experience as well as the
testimonies she has gleaned from hundreds of other
home schoolers she has contact with at her store.
We now have a plan for our home school which is
tailor-made for us!
My consultation with Tammy at
the Home School Resource Exchange store has made
choosing our home school curriculum FUN and
EXCITING! I can't wait to get started home
schooling! Thank you, Tammy! You have truly
been a special blessing to me and to our family

“There must be a better way?” That was
the question that kept running through my mind
as I watched my son struggle through school. The
traditional school classroom was not a
successful learning environment for my son. ADD
& anxiety issues interfered with his
learning in a typical school setting.
Although I wanted to change my son’s
learning environment I lacked confidence that
“I” could home school him. Questions like
“How do I start? What legal paperwork must I
complete? How do I pick out curriculum? Can I
really do this?” filled my head.
A friend of mine referred me
to Tammy at the Home school Resource Exchange.
After my first initial conversation with Tammy I
knew I had found a valuable resource.
First I attended a seminar held at Tammy’s
store which clearly explained the process of
getting started with home schooling. During the
seminar she provided copies of all the necessary
paperwork needed to begin the process of home
schooling along with a great checklist to
follow. I’m a girl who loves a good check
Next I met with Tammy for a private
consultation to pick out curriculum for my 7th
grade son. Her in-depth knowledge of the
available curriculum combined with her
experience in home schooling her own children
made this seemly overwhelming task a joy. I left
the consultation excited to teach my son this
fall. I know I have not only chosen a curriculum
that will make him a successful well rounded 7th
grader but also topics that he is going to be
excited to learn. I had the freedom to choose
topics that would interest him and excite him to
learn. Tammy’s experience, confidence &
passion for home schooling is contagious!
I know that I have made the
best decision for my son.

Picture Mom and Dad looking
through the paper for a new house...
Mom: Ahhh, we should just home school our kids,
then we won't be so
limited to what school district we want to live
Dad: Yeah, sure, that would be helpful, but we
could never do that!
...after a couple of months...
Dad: Wow, we've really been talking about home
schooling a lot. Should
we look into it?
Mom: Yeah, I've been thinking the same thing.
But if I ever did that
it would have to be one of those cyber schools.
I could NEVER do
that whole get my own curriculum thing.
...after the cyber school open house...
Mom: Wow, that was pretty cool, but you don't
really have a lot of
choices. Everyone keeps telling me I should go
see Tammy at the
Home School Resource Exchange. Should we just
check it out and see what
Dad: I guess so. I'm sure we'd do the cyber
thing, but let's just see.
...after a 3 1/2 hour consultation with Tammy...
Mom: I am SOOOO EXCITED! I can't believe she
spent so much time with
Dad: It's amazing how she helped us figure out
each child's strengths
and weaknesses. I never knew we could tailor a
specific to OUR kids.
Mom: I'm definitely on board with this! Wow, can
WE really do this???
Dad: I really think so! Let's give it a shot and
see how it goes for a
...a couple of months later, in the middle of US
3rd grader: Mom, this History is so much fun.
Are we going to
home school again next year? I hope so!
Kindergartener: Me, too! I love us all being
together! (Since I was
laying on the floor learning with them that day,
proceded to jump on me and give me the biggest
hugs they could muster!)
...later that night...
Mom: You know, before we buy a house, we should
just buy a motorhome
and travel with you when you travel for work.
Dad: Are you nuts?
Mom: Yeah, maybe. It has been fun going on some
trips with you
...which brings us to the present. We did it! My
husband works from
home, but travels for his job. In December we
purchased a 40' Class A
motorhome and we are hitting the road in March!
We are having such an
awesome time with our kids, and we can't wait to
see what God has in
store for us. Don't get me wrong, the Beautiful
Feet US History class
we've been doing has been amazing (even I love
learning History now!)
but what could be better than going to SEE it
ourselves? We are selling
some things, putting some things in storage, and
we'll be traveling for
about 9 months.
You don't think you can do it? Wow, just take a
leap of faith and check
it out. You have NO IDEA where it may take you.
Our family has always
been pretty close, but I can't even describe how
close we are now. I
also know we've only scratched the surface of
how close we'll be once we
return from our travels. Home schooling is more
than just academics...it
truly changes your life!

It was a relatively quiet day at Home School
Resource Exchange when we got a call from Tracy.
"Help!" was the desperate tone of
Tracy's voice as she explained her fear of
"not getting enough done." Tracy had
two elementary children and a toddler. She was
frustrated with the chaos in her home and was
too close to the situation to make a plan.
Tracy was able to come in for a "Let's Get Organized" consultation that day. She was able to "dump" her frustrations out on the table for us to solve one-by-one. We were able to help Tracy relax in areas where she was expecting too much and set realistic academic goals, as well as help her make some personal changes in how she accomplished meals and housework so that she could get more out of each day. This concrete plan gave her a course of action, rather than the inaction that comes from being pressured and overwhelmed.
