Thank you so much for providing this service, and for your comments! I love teaching my children at home, and you have made reporting so stress free, and even fun to put together and reflect. Thank you!!! Heading over to sign up for your newsletter and blog now!
Thanks so much, Becky! I really appreciate your help with this. You made the whole process so clear and user-friendly. I was dreading getting this done and having to coordinate my schedule with someone to do it in-person. It was such a relief to find your site and to get everything taken care of so easily and quickly.
I got your mail today. Thank you very much for reviewing my portfolio. I really appreciate it!
We received the paperwork yesterday. Thank you for the quick turnaround and especially for your kind words and encouragement! The service you provide is exceptional and so convenient and it is really motivating for me to hear your thoughts on our year. Your blog is wonderful too...I really appreciate all you do to benefit homeschoolers. I hope you and your family have a blessed year.
Thank you again!
Thanks so much Becky! What a joy it has been to do the assessment with you this year. I will most definitely recommend you to others.
I received H's assessment yesterday. Thank you for getting it done so quick and all the feedback. This was my first year doing it and I was worried but you made it easy for me. I will definitely tell people about you and use you in the future.
I wanted to let you know that I received my paperwork in the mail yesterday. Once again, this has been a great experience. It's sort of like checking in with a friend once a year ;) Thank you for sharing your thoughts about adding E, to our schedule next year. It means a lot to hear what you think. Please take care and I pray you and your family will have a safe, wonderful year!
Just wanted to let you know we have received the paperwork as of yesterday. Thank you for taking the time to review the work and the comments you left. It really helped lift my spirits and let me believe in myself again, that I am doing a good job with my student. My other children all did excellent in homeschooling and I was just having a hard time getting his groove and helping him find school enjoyable. I know next year will be better and he will excel even more. Once again thank you, have a blessed school year and keep helping homeschoolers in Ohio.
I just wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude for your diligence with this!
The expedited responses I've received paired with your knowledge and professionalism have truly made what seemed like a daunting process- a pleasure! Since receiving an almost immediate response to my first e-mail, I've remained nothing short of impressed. You managed to perform a complete review and return your assessment along with the appropriate documentation for our district in less than 24 hours. You even took the time to promptly address every question I asked along the way!
Your professional pride and enthusiasm has been evident with each communication, beginning to end. Your ease of conveying everything in such an organized, clear, and personable way AND in record time is refreshing... just never happens in this day and age!
I really cannot thank you enough! We will be sure to share our highest praise for your work with other homeschooling families!

Thank you so much, Becky! You have been so gracious with all of this. Thank you for your kind words! As a home school mom I'm sure you know how much those words mean! Truly an encouragement to my heart as I go into this year! I will definitely sign up for the newsletter.
Thank you again, so very much, for your ministry to me and my family. Your encouragement always comes at just the right time......when everyone else is spending thousands of dollars on curriculum and talking about SAT prep. I always have to go back to my husband and review our choices; Why we educate the way we do....The fruit of those choices thus far......Is this how we will continue? The answer to the last question is always "Yes", due to the answers to the first two questions. We certainly tweak things as we go along, but we love the way our children are learning and the education they are getting, and the young men they are becoming. Your input always helps me to shut out every other voice out there and follow my husband's lead. You are an invaluable part of our homeschool program, even though we only touch base once a year. I face our school year with confidence just knowing that you "get" what we're doing. ~ J.L
Thank you for your kind words and all that you do. Selfishly, I hope you will be doing assessments for years to come! Take care, Becky :-). ~A.G.
I received the paperwork! Thank you so much! Your comments gave me a much needed boost as I'm doing my planning for the next year. Have a great rest of the summer!

Thank you for doing our assessment yet again! We are thankful for your input and are grateful that you help homeschoolers. It is a comfort to know we can depend on you being there for us each year. I am sure you have a busy family life apart from the work you do on our behalf.
We've sent off the notification papers and are looking forward to a productively pleasant summer. May you have the same!

Hi, Becky: I just got the homeschool assessment paperwork for JB and MM in the mail. I want to say thank you for your kind words of encouragement; I feel confident going forward and excited to start our new year of learning.
We appreciate the diligence and thoughtfulness you put into our assessments, Becky. Enjoy the sunshine and remaining summer, and we hope you have a great school year!
blessings and thanks,
The paperwork came in yesterday's mail! Thank you so much for your kind and encouraging words; I really appreciate your feedback, and the fact that you seem to thoroughly and genuinely enjoy learning about our year. Once again, and I'm so thankful to have discovered you and your services! You make a process that could be scary and overwhelming into something that's educational and enjoyable.
Have a fantastic summer, and I really hope to be in contact again for our next assessment!
Thank you so much, I received the envelope last week and turned all my paperwork in to the district.
Thank you for the positive comments! It was a wonderful affirmation for myself as E.'s teacher & mom. I’ll have to admit I was quite worried when we started the homeschool journey over a year ago, but now I’m very confident that homeschooling is awesome! and just what Emma needed!
I look forward to keeping up with your blog.
Wishing you a happy Summer,
Hi Becky - I received the paperwork in the mail last Friday. Thank you so much! Our work to put together these narratives was a tremendous blessing! For so many years, I have literally dreaded the end of the year assessments – administering the CAT to my kids. I always felt defeated at the end. Because at the beginning of the year, I always refused to “teach to the test”, but rather taught my kids where they were at and what they were interested in, and what I felt should be taught. Thus, they had not always learned that year what showed up on the CAT. So it was always what we had not accomplished that was highlighted in my mind. What an amazing surprise for me after we put together these narratives! What wonderful work the kids had done! How much they had grown and accomplished! I would never have seen this triumph, unless I had done the hard work to put it all together in a narrative. I am very grateful I chose to do things this way this year.
Thanks for your affirmation. The children also really appreciated your uplifting comments on their work this year.

I received the assessment and notes. Thank you for your time, consideration and lovely comments. I was nervous choosing homeschooling for my son, but it turned out to be incredibly rewarding for him and I. Thank you for your encouraging words! If it is okay, could I use you again for next years assessment as well? Thank you in advance!
Thank you so much! What a treat to see your comments when I returned from vacation. I very much appreciate your review of our son's work and your kind words. It is also very reassuring for me and my husband to know our son is progressing well and that my plans for next year are a reasonable progression. I plan to leave your assessment notes in a place the grandparents can’t miss seeing it. I’m very pleased with your review procedure and succinct, professional, and useful comments. Thank you again!!

I received my child's paperwork in the mail today. Thank you SO much for your kind words of encouragement. I think I might keep that paper handy to reread the next time we have one of "those days." :) Working with you has been so easy and such a blessing. I look forward to repeating the process next year!
Thanks again for everything!
Oh, Mrs. Boerner, thank you so very much for your encouraging words! This process has been so easy and such an encouragement to me. I really appreciate your kindness. Thank you for all you've done for our family. I hope to work with you again next year. :)
Thank you again!!
I received the paperwork today in the mail. Thank you for the kind words. Very much appreciated. The girls enjoyed reading their portfolio reviews about how they did in each subject. It was so exciting for them to read!
A.B. Zanesville, OH
Thanks for everything. I was definitely the least stressful, easiest, and best assessment I have experienced yet. Thanks for all the thoughtful and encouraging words, you'll never know how much it meant to me. Let me know if there is any way that I can help you in the future. Keep up the good work!
Have a great day,
YES! We received all the papers promptly and they were such a gift! My son was happy to know he "passed" first grade. For me it was so much more! It was that reassuring pat on the back that I am doing a good job. I am always telling my husband how it is hard, at least for me, to keep going along working hard with no "boss" or supervisor to tell you if you are doing okay. We knew G. was probably doing fine for first grade, but when you have unconvinced in-laws and grandparents and neighbors questioning you, it can be hard to stay sure you are doing the right thing. The assessment was the "teacher support" I realized I had been missing and craving.
Thank you for your time and all the helpful feedback. We will be looking forward to working with you next year.
I just wanted to say thank you for your quick response, recommendations, and support and encouragement!
I come back every year because your kind encouragement and insight are such a help to me, and a great boost at the beginning of the school year. I really appreciate your input and your timely service. Lord willing, you will hear from us again next year.
Have a wonderful year!

I am so happy as I write this note to you. I am so appreciative of your kind and encouraging words about my child's school year. I can't tell you how much your comments and review mean to me and her and my husband. It makes all the hard work worth it.
Even if you know things went well, you are never sure until you run it past the eyes of someone qualified to assess it.
Thank you for sharing your gift of encouragement with me and so many other homeschoolers. This is a priceless gift - worth way more than $30.

I just sat down to review the contents of the assessment. Your words mean so much to me, and I'm sure the same is true for other homeschooling parents. As you know, it is a tremendous undertaking and a sometimes overwhelming responsibility to assume control of your child's education. Your words of encouragement go a long way to relieving some of that anxiety and affirming that we are at least on the right path. Thank you!
Thank you for your continued professionalism, and thank you for your assessment and encouragement, I am really grateful for you and appreciate you more than any words can say.
Again, thank you. Have a wonderful Summer as well.
