My name is Lee Binz. I independently homeschooled my two boys for eight years, from third grade through high school graduation. Now both boys are off to college, having both earned four year, full-tuition scholarships, and I have started my new career as a "veteran" homeschool consultant!

Upon my "graduation" I started my homeschool consulting business, The HomeScholar. My mission is "helping parents homeschool high school."

I have three core beliefs about homeschooling that drive my business:

1. I believe that homeschooling provides the best possible learning environment.

2. I believe that every child deserves a college-prep education, whether or not they choose to go to college.

3. I believe that parents are capable of providing a superior education to their children.

I am not a certified teacher. I do not judge your homeschool or evaluate your children. I am just an experienced homeschool mom who has been where you are and lived to tell about it! I have the knowledge you need to succeed in homeschooling high school and beyond!
