Elizabeth Y. Hanson is an education consultant and writer with a passion for working with parents and educators to find better solutions for raising and educating children.
She graduated from the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in San Francisco, California, and much like Maria Montessori, a doctor turned educator, she applied her understanding of the “whole” person to her later work in education. Since 2003, Elizabeth has been providing a holistic perspective with sound solutions to the burgeoning problems in education.
Her efforts are kindly summed up by John Taylor Gatto, a figurehead in the education reform movement and a longtime source of inspiration for Elizabeth:
"I know Elizabeth Hanson as a remarkably intelligent, highly sensitive woman with a moral nature and deep insight into differences between schooling and education. Elizabeth's mastery of current educational difficulties is a testimony to her comprehensive understanding of the competing worlds of schooling and education. She has a good heart and a good head. What more can I say? I wish my own children had had such a mentor during their own growing up times.”

"In a cloud of confusion, as a new homeschooling family with very little support from others, my husband and I struggled to understand how to take responsibility for our children’s education. With God’s grace we found Elizabeth Hanson, who became our guide in leading the path to fresh and rich teaching methods. Her answers to our questions and advice to our fears and doubts untied knots that held us back. Her experience and knowledge accompanied with a real sense of commitment in bettering our children’s education has made the impossible, not only possible, but very easy and delightful." Y. Mujaddidi
"Elizabeth’s advice was caring, customized to our child, and consistent with what we had been learning about gradually over the many months of research. There was a great blessing in her bringing everything together for us, with simple effective advice. Her experience was immediately apparent, especially in simplifying what can seem like the very daunting prospect of deciding and starting to homeschool. We are looking forward to more guidance from her soon." Aarif R.
"Elizabeth Hanson is a huge blessing to our family. She has given us counseling and guidance to help us succeed with our home schooling. When I feel overwhelmed, scared, or lose my confidence, she offers words of wisdom and encouragement. She always reminds me that children learn best in a loving environment, and to enjoy my children while they discover the world." S. Snow
