North Carolina homeschoolers should check out the website for more details if this type of education sounds interesting. You can set up a tour. Attendees pursue independent studies specifically created for them, explore creative pursuits (music, art, building). Students will learn from outside sources as well and will have opportunities to impact their communities and world through volunteer opportunities. Students can nurture their connection to the outdoors and animals and strengthen their emotional and social skills from direct mentoring. Cindy Gaddis works with parents to collaborate on an individualized learning plan for students. Parents receive a daily journal entry about each child's experiences at the Creative Learning Center. Student can attend full or part time.

Online tutoring for students who wish to improve their individual writing skills. All tutoring is conducted through Google Docs.

(4 week commitment) Cost is $45 per week paid in advance ($180 for total 4 week commitment) OR For students who need assistance on traditional or school writing assignments/papers, Online Scribblers will work with students to improve their rough draft and craft it into the best final copy your student is capable of. For each paper, students submit the original assignment and rough draft. Students will receive an instructor marked copy along with tips for revision. Students then have the opportunity to revise and resubmit a second draft. The instructor will then assist with final advice for revision including spelling, punctuation, organization, sentence structure, and grammar. It should be noted that the instructor will not provide a "quick fix" or rewrite the paper for any student. The goal is to point out areas for improvement and assist the student in making successful and complete revisions. In order to allow for the three draft process, students should submit their initial draft and assignment one week prior to the due date. Please note that this option is also available on a pre-paid basis in which you can pre-pay for up to 4 papers. Costs: $45 per assignment up to 5 pages, $60 per assignment up to 10 pages.
