What People Are Saying About
Elizabeth Y. Hanson
"I know Elizabeth Y. 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.”
—John Taylor Gatto Distinguished educator, public speaker, and best-selling author of Dumbing Us Down: The Hidden Curriculum of Compulsory Schooling
"In a cloud of confusion and with little support from others, my husband and I struggled to understand how to take responsibility for our children’s education. We then found Elizabeth, who became our guide in leading the path to fresh and rich teaching methods. 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 also very easy and delightful."
—Yousra M. Sacramento, CA.
"I've been using Elizabeth's homeschool planning services and curriculum recommendations since my now 11 year-old was preschool age. It has made all the difference! When the voices of doubt crept in, Elizabeth's guidance was there to reinvigorate our decision to homeschool. Not only that, delving into a classical curriculum has enriched our family life and created a culture of reading in our home."
—Shannon S. • Berkeley CA
"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. • London, UK
"I am so grateful to have found your recommendations! I look forward to to our future homeschooling years and using your website as our spine. I too felt very intimidated by classic literature, especially since I never had any exposure to it before. We need to remember that exposing our children at a young age to these masterpieces will enrich their education and their childhood.
—K. Lynn • Boston, MA
"Elizabeth has given us counseling and guidance to help us succeed with our home school planning. When I feel overwhelmed, scared, or lose my confidence, she offers words of wisdom and support. She always reminds me that children learn best in a loving environment and to enjoy my children while they discover the world."
