A more gentle and tactful approach to teaching your child the skills needed for reading success.
Hi there! I'm Courtni aka Cokie.
Welcome! I am a SAHM who has homeschooled my 8 children since 2014. I have taught or am teaching all but 2 of them to read on my own. My philosophy is that a strong reader makes an even stronger student, leader, and most importantly, an even more confident human being. I owe this passion for nurturing the minds of children to my 3rd grade teacher, Mrs. Althea Philpart-Tyson🌹. I will never forget the way she made me feel as a child and a student. It is my desire to be the same for your child.
