Eileen created the Home2Teach program while she was home schooling her two youngest children, creating lessons for them and a few students in a small co-op in which she was involved. She is passionate about ensuring children develop and apply strong written communication skills from the time they are young because they cannot succeed in any subject without such skills. Eileen’s degree is in Early Childhood Education, which included extensive English courses. Eileen lives in northern California with her husband and family. She takes great pride in her four remarkable children and three grandchildren, two of whom she now helps her oldest daughter home school. Her two oldest daughters are talented artists in various media. Her youngest daughter (who was home schooled until high school) is now in a PhD program in Human Genetics, and her son (who was also home schooled until high school) has completed his degree in finance and Economics.

After acquiring a teaching degree and Master’s in Educational Technology, I taught elementary school for several years. Then my husband and I chose to school our own four children at home.

I enjoy hiking, running, time at the beach, and caring for my two cats.
