About This Site

Is This The Right Site For You?
   This site is not designed to replace schools or teachers.  Most schools and teachers do a wonderful job with what they have available and what they are assigned to do.  The site is designed to help individuals and their families strengthen their independent learning skills. 
Everything on this site is from doing my own research and spending over ten thousand hours working one on one with students and their families to see which strategies work and which ones aren't as effective. Anyone is welcome to take advantage of the information on this site. However, please remember that in today's world, there are no guarantees. Everyone's situation is different and all individuals make their own choices. Reality is that education is an individual journey.  What people put into it is what they get out of it.  Thank you ahead of time for tolerating my imperfections.  Learning from our missteps is simply part of the journey.
Solutions should be designed and implemented with that in mind. Many of the solutions on this site may only work for a small group of people. They might not work for everybody which is why they might not work in the public school system.   Some readers may also want to adjust some of the suggestions to better match their situations.
The site doesn't have ads, sponsorships or even charitable contributions in order to reduce clutter and potential conflict of interest.  Keeping my independence has let me focus on matching the best of what's available to my students situation regardless of politics or marketing. Many students have been very successful at growing their skills. Colleges have chosen to be phenomenally expensive; a lot of people overpay. Once they have, it could be too late to get their money back.
Note: Just to reiterate, this site was designed to help parents and students educate themselves. It is updated every few months with stuff that has made a difference for Kathy's students and their families. (Or, just some wacky experiences you wouldn't want to have happen to you.)  This site does not need to be popular to be effective. It only needs to help nice people like you.  May you have an awesome future!!!

Please remember that no person or organization can be all things to all people. 
Everyone is different.  It is up to parents, teens and others to decide whose advice they follow and what they choose to learn.  Acquiring the right skills and knowledge can make for a great life and an awesome career.
