I have created this site to share some information that I have learned about homeschool resources.
I was never into homeschooling before. Having been a product of mainstream education (I have done 1 year pre-school, 6 years primary school, 4 years secondary school and 5 years university earning a degree in Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering), I never imagined myself to be into it. However, circumstances have taken me to learn about homeschooling.
One of my children had a problem with mainstream school and not wanting to let him down and wanting only the best for him and his siblings, I began my research into homeschooling.
I found out that it was actually what I really wanted for them. After doing lots of research, I decided to put down all the homeschool resources that interested me so I might be able to help others who are on their way.
I'm doing eclectic style of homeschooling where I mix different styles of educating according to the needs of our children. We have some structure in some way in that I require my children to learn subjects but they can choose which topic they want to learn in that particular subject appropriate for their level. I find that the children learn better because it interests them because they have chosen it themselves. We also have projects that they undertake so they can explore their interests. Some days, we let our children learn through their natural life experiences. This includes activities like play or games, household responsibilities, work experience, and social interaction.
It's funny but many years ago, I've collected some things that people say about me and I thought I'd add it here:

Also, this is what they say about me which I think is quite true: "Give 110% for everything she does. Headstrong and diligent in the workplace, honest and caring in a relationship and trustworthy with everyone she meets unless given reason not to be. Usually gives people more credit than they deserve."
I have been building websites since 1998 when my friend Percy introduced me into the internet. I tried some of those free sites that were offered by Yahoo, Geocities, Angelfire, Lycos and many more. It was fun! I learned Basic Programming in the university and I because interested in HTML programming after my auntie sent us a book about HTML programming. I also learned how to use wordpress, install worpress manually and even install WPMU which is a WordPress feature that allows you to run multiple WordPress sites from within one WordPress installation. I previously had a hobby site using this platform which earned me more than $2,000 a year which was a pretty good return for a hobby site but for some reasons I stopped. I was having babies at that time and of course, they became my priority at that time so I decided to stop all my web building. But anyway, here I am again using this platform because who knows, one day, I will be able to have a good return again for helping other people and just expressing myself.
