Are you a parent who is disappointed by the "standardized education" of public school? Is the price of private school tuition just too high? Does your child need tutoring or help with homework assignments? Have you ever wished there was a better option for your child's education?
The mission of Toco Hills Home Tutoring is to meet the educational needs of students in first through eighth grade, at an affordable price. Because we offer an individualized educational program, students are able to explore their own interests while gaining academic skills. The result? Students experience success and begin to love learning again.
Toco Hills Home Tutoring was founded in response to parents who want a homeschool environment for their children, but who cannot take on full-time teaching responsibilities and maintain a full-time career at the same time. Our services can provide the needed alternative. Georgia law, (O.C.G.A. § 20-2-690), states that all parents may either teach their own child at home or hire a tutor to provide educational services. As educational tutors, Toco Hills Home Tutoring is happy to assist you in filing your Declaration of Intent with the state of Georgia. Once your form is complete, then you will remain the legal homeschool teacher of your child. By law, you are free to hire Toco Hills Home Tutoring to provide half-day, extended- day, or after school hourly educational services for your homeschool child.
Whether you are an existing homeschool family seeking a supportive and nurturing educational environment to supplement your child's work at home, or you are new to the idea of "homeschool", Toco Hills Home Tutoring is confident that we can allow you to focus on the “home” aspects of homeschool while you entrust the history projects, hands on science experiments, and square roots to us.
Our non-Common Core curriculum covers: Math, Geometry, Creative Writing, Grammar, American History, World History, Physical Science, Chemistry, Biology, Zoology, Geography, Civics, Home Economics, Art, Music, and PE/Cardio.
Additionally, we provide our homeschool students with the opportunity to learn about gardening, animal husbandry, and attend field trips.
We also know that there are some subjects, beyond academics, that have a greater and more lasting influence on whether or not a child will become a successful adult; we call them an "education for life". At Toco Hills Home Tutoring, we have made an “education for life” an essential component of our tutoring curriculum.
Tuition & Fees
We have kept our tuition and fees affordable so that families, who might otherwise not be able to afford private school tuition or are unable to place their career on hold to homeschool, could still obtain a high quality homeschool education for their child.
We also charge an affordable hourly fee to the families who need after school tutoring.
Who We Are
Our program was founded by
Mrs. Stilman. She has seventeen years of experience as a Homeschool teacher for children from Elementary through High School, as an Elementary Montessori teacher, and as a Director of Religious Education.
After completing her Bachelor of Science, Mrs. Stilman attended AMI Montessori teacher training and was awarded AMI Montessori teacher certifications at both Primary and Elementary levels.
As a dedicated educator, Mrs. Stilman has continued to add to her professional toolbox. She has attended numerous continuing education workshops, including multiple courses focusing on children with learning differences.
Mrs. Stilman has received numerous testimonials and letters of reference from the many co-educators, students, and parents she has had the pleasure of working with for the past seventeen years.
Worth a deeper look:
Test scores at this school are about the same as the state average, though still below the top-performing schools in the state. Because test scores in some states are so low, many students at this school may not be performing at grade level.
