My child has a lot of issues. He has a motor skills therapist, a feeding therapist, and a regular therapist because of all his emotional problems. Also, he does not eat regular food and he has a different schedule than normal school days, so I chose to enroll him in an online school. I was with K12 but something happened and I ended up having to switch to another school. Then, a friend of mine told me to try Epic Charter.
Everybody there has been good. They have gone above and beyond to help me in any way possible and I like them better than K12. So far, our interactions with the students and the teachers are amazing. My son's teacher is awesome and from what I see, she is dedicated to her students. She is always in contact with me and meets me at least once a week. She is really helpful. My child is currently in third grade but he has difficulty in some areas, so they try to get him some special classes. Epic Charter Schools has taken him a long way and he is learning a lot with the help they have given him. I would refer them to anybody who wants to try an online school before I recommend them anywhere else.
At first, when I worked with Epic Charter, I didn't have a good experience. The teacher was very forceful as to what we had to do. We switched teachers and the one we got, Angela, was more laid back and she worked with our schedule. Also, she worked with what we liked and didn't like. She was amazing. If my daughter didn't want to go to a public school, I would totally have Angela again.
My daughter wanted to do online schooling for more flexibility and to go away from negative influences. We already knew people who were enrolled in Epic so it was easy to learn more about it and have some support through friends. We went with a teacher who was recommended by a friend because her daughter already had her. We contacted the teacher and she met with us in Starbucks and we got to know her well. I got all my questions answered so that made me feel really comfortable with the whole thing. Throughout the school year, if we had questions, I would just text or call the teacher and she was really good at getting back with me and finding out the answers.
My daughter loved it although the teacher was not a Math teacher by trade and when my daughter had some trouble with a higher Math that she was enrolled in, the teacher couldn’t help her. I also couldn’t help her and so, I ended up getting some outside tutoring that was kinda costly. We tried an online tutor/helper and it really was not worth anything too much. There was another teacher in Epic that was really good at Math and so, he was available to help her some which was a big help.
Epic is great for older kids and if you had a daughter who was older like mine and had already completed a lot of a higher harder classes then Epic would be great. My daughter will be a singer next year and she’s only taking two classes online because she's pretty much done with everything. My middle school daughter wants to do it but I won't let her do it yet because she's got too many difficult classes in Science and Math coming her way in the next few years that I want her to be in a brick and mortar school for.
The idea of the teacher coming to your house and helping out plus the learning fund drew us into enrolling in online schooling. We also had some other friends who were doing it. We are at The Academy of Classical Christian Studies, so it's a blended model where we have kind of part-time there and then part-time homeschool, and it's nice to have both.
I did the whole Epic Charter enrollment process online and it was pretty easy. The quality of education they offer is good and our teacher is awesome too. She's somebody who I feel like knows what to look for. She's also super sweet and helpful, and we love her. I also love that she's laidback. She's not pressuring us one way or another for certain things and she's flexible on when she comes to our house, as far as her own schedule and timing dealing with mine. Then at the end of the year, she had a sweet little party at the park for all of her Epic families where she honored each one of her students with a certificate. She brought treats for everybody too. I just appreciate that she cares about her students and their families. Epic is really great, especially for the early years.
Everyone I spoke to on the technical end at Epic Charter Schools has been very helpful. I was doing homeschooling on my own and I had to pick out the curriculum. They are also part of the schools, so working with them means that my kids are getting what kids their age are getting. I'm confident in the school and the quality of education that they offer is really good. My kids did Learning Odyssey last year and this year, we're gonna try A-Plus. Furthermore, meeting other kids their age and getting together has been really good. Doing more of that through Epic would be great.
I have a daughter who has social anxiety and it began to get worse as she was going through grade school. By the time third grade came around, she couldn't even leave the house. So we went to online schooling from there. At first, we tried K-12 and it was terrible. A friend of mine from church suggested Epic Charter so we changed to them after her second year of homeschooling.
Since then, we've had two tremendous teachers. In the meantime, I ended up adopting four foster children. I had them in public school and due to the bullying that goes on with public school, I pulled them all out. And so, all six of them are in homeschool and they're all in Epic now. Enrolling was really easy and our teacher was very helpful. We got all the paperwork for her, she scanned it and we were done. We have one kid who could not read at all whom we pulled out of school and the teacher has been working with him quite a bit. Now we've got him to where he's reading. Epic's teachers worked with me. They give feedback and they're right there with you pushing your child to excel. People there have been very caring. It was a great experience.
Do more research if you're considering Epic Charter. I was trying to get my daughter caught up so she can graduate on time and I figured that she would be able to work at a faster pace if I enroll her in online schooling. Her enrollment at Epic Charter had been paid but we haven’t received the equipment for the start of school yet. Also, the state schools have already started but online schooling with Epic doesn’t start for another month. My daughter will be further behind now because they are starting a month before she can even start. Other than that, the reps have been professional.
We wanted accountability and flexibility for our homeschool. With Epic Charter, we could pick our curriculum and set our own hours. Also, we liked not having to be online at certain times. My child is currently enrolled in a one-on-one program and it's been great thus far. I believe it's the best education my child could get.
My children were not happy at school. A couple of my daughter's friend were already going in Epic and they were happy with it. Everybody was responsive and helpful and they did everything that we needed. I have a K-8 and a high school student enrolled and we've been very happy with the curriculum that we picked.
I'm a school teacher and we send our kids to the academy, which is a blended model, two days a week. We're also utilizing Epic for other services. I heard about Epic's inception from my best friend. It's a private school and there's not one curriculum but as long as parents are actively engaged, things should be fine. Enrolling there was easy as it was all online and so far, I'm satisfied with them. In fact, I already have friends who enrolled based on what I've said like what the school has to offer and how it has worked for us.
For our younger kids, we put them into a normal elementary school but for our middle school aged children, it didn't seem to be the best thing to throw them into the middle of a public middle school where they have absolutely no connection. And so, we enrolled them in an online school. We did most of it online and then had to go by the office for dropping off documents. Everything has been cool and simple with the office staff at Epic and Sarah, our teacher, has been great. Our oldest has been in Compass but we're going to Plato for both next year.
We've done our state sides in different states in different schools in different programs and a lot of times, there's an assumption that people that are coming in are either from the area or have some idea of what's going on and so, information isn't always as forthcoming as it could be. Epic seems to be way better about that than the local public schools and we appreciate that and the email communication and updates on what's going on with Epic. There could be a better explanation of what the learning fund is and how that's to be used, which shows up with a local Facebook group for Epic as well.
We had some people looking at Epic as the kids were transitioning out of 6th grade and they knew that the public middle school is not really a good option for students who are seeking to excel. But what we have discovered is even with our kids that are more motivated, that it still requires quite a bit of parent interactions, which we've done homeschooling before so that's not a horrible thing but our jobs are such that we are able to do that. If the parents are not in the place where they are able to actually invest daily in the kid’s education, then online school in general may not be for them. But there are maybe some curricula that are delivered online that are meant to be more comprehensive. And so, if they're not able to be daily involved, this might not be the way to go. But we’re pleased with the quality of education at Epic and they're definitely worthwhile.
We were homeschooling on our own. We thought that the freedom of homeschooling would give us a little bit more accountability. We tried a school but it was a little too rigid. And it was the first one here in our state, so we got into the bureaucracy of it all, got caught up in that and so they had a lot of other things that died down since then. It left a bad taste in our mouth so I wanted to find something. Also, my daughter and my son both have different learning styles. With the first one, we were not able to really tailor the curriculum to fit both of their styles. So my daughter, even though she came from the other program, came straight into another program very similar and she did well. And my son, we've been able to adapt him to something that better suits his needs. So that was the positive thing for me with Epic.
The teachers are very approachable as well, and they're very good at getting back at me and giving me information. However, my biggest concern with these interactions with the school is when you go beyond the teacher. Also, the counselors are not very knowledgeable as far as getting information to you about requirements. I have a daughter and she graduated this year. My daughter ended up as a 12th grader taking 8th grade math because of some error from the first school.
And just through my own research, I feel that some of the counselors are like reception staff that has been promoted to that position. If they have better staff as far as the counselors go, especially when you'd talk to children that are trying to go to college, it would be beneficial. But other than that, everyone’s personable and professional. Everyone works really hard as well. When I talk to them about anything, I get responses. The enrollment process was really easy too. I submitted everything online and it was a pretty simple process.
The learning experience has been good too. You can change curriculums every year, which is a plus, but it also has some negative when you're changing curriculum every year. It's up to your own accord because you'd have to do that. I like having the teacher because then with the other school, you had a teacher assigned to you but it was just a different experience. It wasn’t that one on one quality like I could meet with this teacher, and she could see my kids, and she could evaluate my child with me. My children homeschooled their whole lives, there are certain things that they're just not used to. So I was worried about whether or not they were reading, if they were on par or not meeting certain things and just having the teacher there really helps ease that worry and concern. So the quality of the education is good or I wouldn't re-enroll.
My son was not being challenged enough at school so we chose to enroll in online schooling plus, one of my other kids was on an online course for K-12. My son joined Epic in the middle of the school year but he had to wait a couple of weeks before he started because of the enrollment process but as soon as it was rolling, it went smoothly. State testing day was great and the staff were all friendly and fantastic, and the teacher was wonderful. After I sent my application to Epic, they were not super clear on what my next steps would be so I called the offices to find out. And the person who answered the phone was kinda short with me such that I should know what I was asking her. Other than that, everything else was fine.
My son did Compass and the quality of education was okay. But he had to do summer school which was weird for me because it's something I've never experienced. Also, he got A's and B's in every subject so the fact that he's having to do some summer stuff is kinda frustrating. They said it was based on state testing. I’m not a fan of it. I believe in the program but people should do their research and make sure that it's gonna fit their student, and be very clear as to what their expectations are. My son’s teacher does everything based on the curriculum and Study Island, but his friend's teacher did 90% of the grades from Study Island and they had projects and reports they had to turn in. And so, there's no consistency across the board.
Getting in with that teacher and feeling out if what that teacher is doing is good. Right now, you just get to see a teacher and what they specialize in but you don't get to see the way they're teaching. We happened to get with one teacher that doesn't meet with group, whereas, he might have done better with the teacher that met with group a little bit. It could be broken down a lot better for us and be more customized towards the parent because if I could have looked at a list of teachers that were in my area and seen that teacher A does group teaching along with Study Island and curriculum, or teacher B does no group teaching, but only does curriculum, I could see what they do.
My daughter was experiencing a lot of bullying in school. Then I had talked to other people that had a good experience with Epic, so I just thought I would go with them. Enrolling with them was straightforward. However, it was also a little tricky because of some experience that she had. She had like partial credit, and it was a little bit unclear which classes she needed to take. But, it was just a new process and it was fine. My daughter loves her teacher, so that has been great. Before, she was passing out at school, like panic attacks, and it was horrible. She was missing so much school just for medical reasons because she was having so much anxiety with bullying. She was depressed. So, for us, going with Epic has been amazing. My daughter has flourished, not actually going to regular school.
I work full-time so doing online classes was my best option. Epic goes at my own pace so it works with my schedule best. I also did K12 a few years back and Epic is a little bit more independent for people who need the independence, but one has the option to not be so independent and have more help. I have the option to do it on my own, which I appreciated. The enrollment process was very easy for me personally because all of my information including track records and birth certificates was sent over from K12 to Epic, so I didn't have to do much but inquiring and filling out the enrollment forms. It took less than a week to get everything done and set up.
I'm taking Plato and I have had no problems with the Epic school instructors. They get back to me usually right away. They are really knowledgeable so they help me with about anything that I need help with. The quality of education in Epic is a little bit better than being in a brick and mortar for the simple fact that I can review all of the material. It's always in front of my face if I need to go back and look at it as compared to where I have to cram it all in my brain and then hope that I remember it. So the quality is perfect for me.
I have been home schooling for years and we’re military so we have been in a different state and so I wanted to see what it was about. I also have some friends who were doing it and while I have the opportunity since I’m in a state that has it, I tried Epic. I went online to enroll and the teacher contacted me so I didn’t have any issues and I never had to leave my home to do anything. It was great.
The teachers were very kind and supportive of homeschooling which is a plus for me. I love that they still have the mindset that “I still want to be the teacher.” They were friendly but very much wanting my kids to excel in learning and wanting it to be geared towards where they’re at in the different stages of different subjects. One of my kids is excited about it and I have another one who looks at it as extra work but that’s just personality wise. Especially since they’re children. Last year, I only got a little bit of it and I liked it. This year, I’m excited to dive more into Epic to see the curriculum we’ve picked out and to immerse ourselves in it. I am doing a complete change of how we homeschooled in the past so, this will be eye opening for me.
My son went to home school and the homeschool coordinator for his basketball team recommended Epic Charter School for online schooling. The enrollment process with Epic was fairly easy and his tutor was wonderful. He did Odyssey and another subject, and he really enjoyed it. The quality of education is good too. So, try out Epic Charter School for yourself.
I have two different children that attend Epic. The first one is my older one that just graduated last year. My younger son, who is 11, is on the autism spectrum and we were having difficulties in school with the two people that were helping him, and we were also getting ready to transition to middle school. As a parent, I wasn’t ready for that so I chose to bring him home for that reason and it went really well. As far as my older son, Epic helped him because of the way it's structured. It lets you do things at your own time and pace, and that helped him be successful and be able to graduate this year. Otherwise, he wouldn't have graduated on time in a regular brick and mortar ‘cause he got anxiety and it was too hard. At Epic, he could stay up until four o’clock in the morning to do school work if he wanted, and that flexibility was really good for him.
As for my younger son, it was like a light switch went off. He was having a meltdown every single day at school and I was getting phone call after phone call saying, “Come and help us calm down your child.” It got as bad as him peeing on the floor at school. Since bringing him home, we haven’t had that. We get a little frustrated but when I see that he’s getting frustrated, it gives me the opportunity to say, “We’ll come back to this later. Let’s take a walk around the house or go outside for couple of minutes.” I’ve also realized that we’re really behind, which I didn’t realize how far when we were in brick and mortar. Epic gives us the chance to get him back up to speed with everybody else his age. When he was in brick and mortar, he would have meltdowns and then the school wouldn’t give him school work because he didn’t function enough to get the school work done. Now he can function well and he can get the work done.
Also, the teachers we have had are great. I had Adam before and he was really good with my older son. The main reason my older son graduated was because of the encouragement that he received from Adam. Adam even took the time to explain to my son what my son's future was gonna look like if he didn’t complete this. Kim is my other teacher with my kid on spectrum and she’s knowledgeable with autistic kids. She's also friendly and easy going. She works really well with my younger son and gives him time to do things. The other cool thing is she can manipulate things. If there's a science experiment to do and my son's really having a hard time, she can go in and say, “We’re not gonna do this science experiment this time and we’ll catch up next time.”
I’ve been to the Epic office a couple of times and the secretary there is always very pleasant and nice every time I come in. She’s always really happy so she’s very friendly. The initial enrollment was done online and it was a step-by-step process, which was fairly simple for us. I’ve already been telling friends about them.
We don’t have a good middle school in our area and a friend of mine recommended Epic. Her son did it and was happy with it. The enrollment was all online and it wasn't difficult at all. The main program my son uses is the Odysseyware and he likes it. He's gonna continue it next year. I feel comfortable with Epic. Any time I’ve ever had any kind of concerns or thought about adding something, his teacher has always been available to do that. So I like that we can cater to what he needs. I had to call tech support about the laptop once and they were pretty helpful as well. We're pretty happy with it so far. It’s so easy to customize your child’s needs. It’s not just cut and dried standard -- it’s flexible and easy for everyone.
My kid has behavioral problems and she’s a transgender going to a he. She was being bullied so Epic Charter Schools was a good option at the time. My older son was in it also. Both of them are with Adam and he is an awesome teacher. The only issue I have is when you have a teacher in front of you, you’re more motivated to do things. I go to work, come back, and I realize that my kids haven’t touched their homework after a couple of days. And if your kid is not self-motivated then Epic is not the thing for them. But my ex-husband’s wife’s son graduated from Epic so it’s possible for it to be a good idea if you have a self-motivated kid. Still, we’ll try again and make sure my daughter passes. I just wish there were more ways to make the problem kids that are unmotivated to do something at least once a week, like mandatory get together with the teacher.
I have home schooled for years and my oldest son did high school through Epic Charter Schools. We continued because we really liked the teacher that we had and it will be additional help. Adam was my older son’s teacher up until he became principal. He was also my youngest son’s teacher and he was very personable, knowledgeable and amazing. There were some unnecessary things in the health curriculum but other than that, I’m happy with them and the experience has been good.
We liked the flexibility of curriculums at Epic Charter Schools and their staff has been great for the most part. Enrolling was pretty easy and I just filled out all the information online. We use two different curriculums and one of them is Compass Odyssey which is the one that I always choose for the younger children just because it has more entertainment. It looks more like gaming for them which they love. Thereafter, we move to Odysseyware which is more rigorous and educational. While we've had one conflict with the teacher, we've changed teachers already and other than that, interacting with their staff has been really good. I recommend Epic Charter.
My daughter was struggling at school with her peers and was having anxiety. I looked at other online schools and it wasn't user friendly. I went through Mid-Del, trying to figure out something and they had basically blew me off like, "We don't do that anymore," because I was asking them about homeschooling. I kind of got discouraged and then I found out about Epic. The wife of my boss works there and he had a lot of information about it so I thought we would try them. And so far it's been great.
I was surprised at how simple the enrollment process was. I called and they gave me the information. I went online and enrolled. And once that process was done, they emailed me. And then I got my daughter a laptop. She is enrolled in the Plato program. I can see a positive difference in her in the last six months. She's learning a lot and I try to interact with her as much as I can and get online to look and see what she was doing. And it seems like she's doing really well. She made really good grades. My daughter's teacher has also been amazing. If I had a question, I can text or call him and he's always been available and always willing to meet with us or answer questions.
We had issues with our kids being bullied pretty badly. After doing a lot of researching, talking to different people, we chose Epic Charter. So far, it works great for us. I like being able to make time with the kids. Epic also works with you really well on what you want the curriculum to be like for the kids, and there are a lot of different choices or programs you can use. Their teachers have always been awesome as well. And the curriculum that we're using now is a lot better than the one last year. Epic is a good choice.
My oldest son is disabled with an emotional disability, so it makes it really hard for him to get along in a traditional school. He has ADHD and PTSD and so his outbursts can be violent sometimes even though he's on medication for that. And so online schooling is a good option for me because I like to keep my eldest son underneath the same roof, so I can keep an eye on him and make sure that he doesn’t try to hurt anybody.
I saw that Epic had a pretty good track record so I decided to give it a try for a year. The accredited teacher is really great with him. She's able to handle him whenever she does in person. She comes once every two weeks, and she's really good at working with him. And not only that, but I can sit down with him, help him with his schoolwork online, and help him understand that. I like that, as a parent, I am able to focus a lot of my attention on my child and what he needs, so instead of being in a classroom of 23 with one teacher, it's more individualized. Epic's curriculum is also comprehensive and they've been doing really great. I would recommend Epic, especially if your child needs more specialized attention.
My neighbor is one of the teachers for Epic Charter Schools and she has talked about it for a couple of years. And then just I'm visiting with her, she helped clarify a lot of the things that I had questions about and we decided to give it a try. I was interested in some of the options to supplement what I was doing with another teacher and some options to help pay for different tutoring, and to have our teacher help with some struggle areas that my kids were having.
We did online enrollment and it was easy. Last year would have been our second year to re-enroll so most of our information was saved. Then this past February 1, I did it again for this coming year and it was quick and easy. The first year, I know you had to have some of the copies of shot records and things like that but that's pretty standard for any school enrollment.
We interacted with Julie, our teacher, on a weekly basis and she has been amazing. If we don't talk weekly, we always see just the different Epic teachers when we do the standardized testing and they are friendly and welcoming to the kids. Julie has gone above and beyond to help my daughter, especially in Math. She has even had put some of her own time into it above what she's probably paid for. She has really wanted to see success for my daughter and we're not just another student off her list, and I felt that way about any interaction we've had with the teachers. I've really been pleased with the teachers and the faculty of Epic.
We did some of the classes that they offered for the study island tutoring. This year, my daughter did them online through Google Hangouts so there were some different teachers that we wouldn't have normally interacted with and they were really helpful too. That was a great alternative because my oldest daughter is in sixth grade. We did some of the Google Hangouts for sixth grade Math and the lady that had done that was a Math teacher who was really helpful and great with strategies. And then our teacher has been great in any subject area we needed help with.
However, I've been very frustrated with their slowness in paying vendors. When you file something for your learning fund, a vendor sends in an invoice. They have a 30-day window of reimbursing that vendor. It's frustrating from the parent's side because they are slow to pay for a service that we have already had, and then they wait until the 29th or the 30th day to put that check in the mail every single time. That reflects poorly on us, the Epic people as a whole. It doesn't encourage people to want to be Epic vendors because, "Oh well, I'm not gonna get paid for a month out at least."
I understand at the beginning of the year, "Hey, we have a new influx of students. It may take us a while to get your invoices". But it has been that case every time consistently for two years. It didn't have anything to do with me but it reflects poorly to me when I'm having to say to the tutor or the piano teacher, "I'm so sorry you haven't been paid yet for your services. It's coming." If there's anything they could do to make that more efficient, it would encourage people to want to be Epic vendors. Other than that, it's been a great experience. I recommend Epic quite a bit to people and answered a lot of questions about it.
I have cancer, and I needed some additional help. I still wanted my children with me, and I had quite a few friends who used Epic and were pleased with it so that was why I chose it. So far, the experience has been very good. They're consistent and I like the teachers that we have. I have two middle school boys, and then I have a high school student, so I've had three teachers this year, and I was very pleased with them. I've been homeschooling for 10 years, so I had a lot of homeschooling materials. And then we used some of Epic's things - just a combination and I just like it. Some things are better than others, and I like some of the things that I had better. And they were flexible in what I did and I appreciated that. I suggest Epic to a lot of people.
I like the thought of homeschooling my children but I wanted some accountability and I didn't want to be in charge of record keeping. I liked EPIC's cost so I decided to enroll my kids with them. I did the enrollment online and I had to supply the birth certificates for the first time I enrolled my kids but the process was very easy. The teacher we got has taken care of everything for me and she has been fabulous. Right now, I chose to do offline schooling for my children and it's all about Reading, Spelling, Spectrum Math, and Science. We also made some modifications with their teacher and we'd be doing other curricula next year.
My kids really like going to EPIC and I think the education they're getting there is better than the one they'd get from a public school. I've recommended it to several friends and told them that if they wanna do homeschool, then they should do Epic because they will get a teacher to help with all those stuff that homeschoolers don't really want to deal with like the recording of the grades and having to do a lesson plan. I've also recommended my specific teacher because she's phenomenal.
I was tired with fighting with the public schools. My grandson was being bullied in school. And I went to the school board and teachers, principals, and everybody else, and nobody would even offer the help or get it taken care of. So, the only thing that was out there to get was home schooling. And I knew it'd be safe there. Epic Charter Schools is much faster and more friendlier than other public schools. The enrollment process took a while. It took us a while to get all the information. But Epic offers quality education. And my grandson has been enrolled in Odysseyware for a long time. The only thing is that he's able to do things that I don't like, like he's able to do schooling and play games and videos. And that's different than in public schools.
Our son is very bright. His test scores started dropping in middle school and I thought it would be a better way for me to make sure of his habits. We're putting him in high school next year. He is a basketball player, and so we put him in online. We have two sons. One will stay in Epic and then one will go in high school. But I just wanted to make sure that he was up to his potential before he started high school because he's a bright student, and he should be able to handle the AP Courses now.
The other school's testing was done way away and its headquarters was in Eastern Oklahoma. And then, someone had talked to me about Epic Charter Schools and then I was able to visit with a parent that had Epic and they gave me the name of our current teacher to be able to talk to. Norman is a smaller community and I felt good about the one-on-one instruction from this particular teacher and then had been impressed since then. Our experience with Epic has been very pleasant because of her, Julie. She was very attentive to what my goals with our older son were. We have five children, and the first two are very high-achieving academically. And I knew this one was a different personality but he was very capable academically and she was very good in listening to me.
I don't like to be viewed as a helicopter mom over my kids. But when your kid's doing great and then all of a sudden, his national test scores dropped to 50 percentile, and he's always been up at the top, you know something is not quite right. And so, she listened to me with that. She was really good to help us achieve our goals. He's still a little behind in reading but he's in the 95th or 96th percentile on math. He has really excelled. If I didn't think the vocabulary, she would always run a good book to say, "Let's buy this with your learning funds," in areas that we didn't necessarily feel with that program that we bought that was up to where we needed to. She was always good to recommend extra material or to kinda cover that. She really was good at tailoring what we need.
We've gotten our son up there pretty well. However, I didn't like the tutoring for our kids. Epic may be paying those people by the hour, but it didn't seem like a very time efficient thing to do with all that typing. So, if my son needed extra tutoring, I would just either ask our high school son to help him or hire an outside tutor.
I have recommended Epic Charter Schools to my friend. She was considering homeschooling and had gone to a homeschooling convention but was overwhelmed with the amount of material and curricula to choose from. She's a busy woman, and she's just like, "I don't know that I can do that." And so, I said, "Well, here you have the best of both worlds. You have a certified teacher looking over what they're doing. And you can bring him home and make sure they're improving their study habits."
