Ms. Rivello can work with your family in one of three ways:
1.) As your child's primary educator for all academic subject areas (great for parents who are not able to teach their child or who simply do not want to teach their child).
2.) An additional teacher to teach the subject areas parents don't feel comfortable teaching (great for parents who struggle themselves with certain concepts and need someone else to teach these standards).
3.) An additional teacher to supplement courses not offered or taught from virtual/online schools (great for students who need a multi-sensory approach to learning or who are tactile/kinesthetic learners but also do well with online coursework).
Grade level standards are taught using Florida Common Core unless an evaluation shows your child needs instruction with remediation, advanced curriculum, or both. You will be responsible for purchasing all materials specialized for your child's use during the year. Details and options will be discussed prior to beginning homeschooling.
SUBJECT AREAS OFFERED
(please call to discuss)
Openings for the 2019-2020 school year are very limited. Homeschooling is offered to K-8 families interested in:
1.) Full-Time Status: this includes three or four academic subject areas taught each week.
2.) Part-Time Status: this includes one or two academic subject areas taught each week.
Ms. Rivello will maintain your child's portfolio for up to two years. She will also complete and submit a Home Education Annual Evaluation to the school district annually. This evaluation can only be completed by a Florida Certified Teacher or a licensed psychologist.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to give us a call.

You may mail, fax, or email the information to our office (firstname.lastname@example.org). Fill out the top portion of the evaluation form to reconfirm address and contact information.
