What are the types of online instruction? Is it effective? Online education is exploding! It can work hand-in-glove with homeschooling, or it can be an expensive error and a time-waster. How can we avoid a mistake? How does it work? What are the pros and cons? Do you want instruction or just a curriculum outline? Some are free, and some are costly—what’s the difference? And maybe the most important question—can we go to class in our jammies? Marji has graduated her last student. Her experience with online instruction extends from the parent side to the teacher experience.

Marji McIlvaine and husband, Rick, homeschooled for 26 years in 4 states and are now officially retired as homeschool parents. All 6 of their children have graduated from their homeschool, and in 2019 the first grandchild was born. Marji’s heart is to encourage other parents in the homeschool journey. She served on the board of Henderson County Homeschool Association for 20 years, administers the Woodcock-Johnson test in WNC, teaches homeschoolers online and in-person with The Academy at Bright Ideas Press, Luma Learn, My Fun Science, BBC tutorials and Classical Scholars. Marji also tutors students with reading difficulties. She has a passion for foreign languages, science, writing, history and, oh, the whole of God’s incredible creation, and for sharing the joy in those subjects with her own children and others in our homeschooling community.
