“I was very anxious about homeschooling my child for the first time.  After I called and spoke with a Calvert Education Counselor, I felt SO much better!  The counselors have given me a lot of advice and support over the years and I’m very grateful for their help.” – Janelle M

Questions you might ask our Education Counselors:
  • I am homeschooling several children at the same time. Any tips?
  • We are having difficulty establishing a routine. Can you give me suggestions?
  • I don’t understand how to teach equivalent fractions. Help!
  • My child really loves math. How can I enhance his learning?
  • Can you give me a few ideas to make geography more interesting for my child?
  • My child is a slow worker, and our day is getting longer and longer. Any advice?
  • I want to change my daily schedule, moving quicker through some subjects and taking more time on others. Can you help me?

Advisory Teaching Service

Students enrolled in Calvert’s Advisory Teaching Service are assigned an Advisory Teacher who provides evaluations of your child’s work in all subjects, including detailed feedback on composition, mechanics, and processing skills.  Advisory Teaching Service enrollment begins a partnership that will reinforce and support your homeschool journey.

Advisory Teaching Service benefits include:
  • An assigned teacher who sees your child through completion of his or her course
  • An evaluation of your child’s work in all subjects in relation to a peer group
  • Detailed feedback on composition, mechanics, and processing skills
  • Motivation and encouragement for your child to do his or her best work
  • Suggestions for improved study and insightful comments
  • A partner to reinforce the observations and instructional priorities that you, the Learning Guide, have set for your child
  • A certificate of completion and a transcript (available upon request) which may help fulfill your state’s reporting requirements
The Advisory Teaching Service Placement Process

Available for students in Kindergarten-12th Grade, students in grades 4-8 are required to complete a Free Placement Test to be eligible for Advisory Teaching Service enrollment.  Upon completion of the placement test, a Placement Counselor will contact you to discuss your child’s test results.

Students in grades 9-12 are required to complete the i-Ready diagnostic assessment.  Upon completion, an Academic Coach will discuss the results and help the family select their courses.

My son loves reading the positive and encouraging comments his advisory teacher adds to each of his tests. I love the peace of mind knowing that we have transcripts for each completed grade level and that a teacher has reviewed his work.
