Mentor Program

Who Can Be a Mentor?

Mentors are Christian women who have been home teaching for at least 3 years. They consistently attend their Bible believing church. These women are resourceful people and are great at encouraging others to be resourceful themselves. They are loving, hopeful and insightful people. The mentor's students are at least 3 years ahead of the oldest student of each family being mentored. Teachers who have graduated students may work with any family with students at any age. There is one exception to not home teaching for at least 3 years. That exception is that the mentor has a degree in education (Masters or Credential and has experience and understanding of home schooling) and has worked at least 3 years in the field of education. If you are interested in mentoring, submit your resume to the ESA email address. Mentors are needed now. Tack on your biography that you would post on the website.

Mentors are Independent Contractors -- Pay Plan

ESA grade school parents do pay the mentors directly and at the time of an in-person consultation or forward a check before a telephone consultation.

ESA high school parents receive mentoring as part of the enrollment package and do not pay for this service.

Biography of a Mentor

Families want to know with whom they are working. The more you can share about your family and your style of home schooling, the easier it will be for parents to choose a mentor. Interested parents will be able to call you from the list sent to families. Topics to share in your biography might include:

  • Your city (no address on website).
  • Picture of your family
  • What makes your family unique?
  • Ages of students in your family.
  • How many years you've been home schooling.
  • What do you do in your spare time?
  • Why did you choose to home school?
  • Students' accomplishments, hobbies, skills
  • Educational training and degrees.

Make it no longer than 250 words and write it in third person. People want to follow real people, so write it in such a way that you don't appear perfect - a little humor helps.
