Need A Little Home School Help?


Sometimes we need a little home school help! Whether you have questions about my website, or home schooling, I desire to provide the help you need to successfully home school your children, or reach the home school market.

Heather Gneco

Hi! My name is Heather Gneco. I am a home educator and own a homeschool support company called PEAH - say "pay-ah". PEAH stands for Parents Educating at Home. PEAH's website, homeschoolsavings.com, provides an ever-growing collection of:

  • money and time-saving homeschooling articles,
  • information on home education,
  • homeschool curriculum reviews
  • and my favorite, homeschool savings.
We want to help you school your children successfully and affordably; we are always looking for savings for you.

I also provide home school help. The fastest way to get help with questions or problems you are having, is to post them to PEAH's facebook page. I've been known to hang out there on occasion. :)You will also find lots of willing home educators who are willing to share their advice and guidance to help you in your homeschooling journey.

When submitting your homeschooling question/s to my site, please use the homeschool questions form. Make sure you include your email address, so you will know when I respond. Your email address remains private and will NOT be visible on our website.

Since I am a home educator, I may not be able to get back to you really quick, but know that I value your comments and questions, and will respond to your inquiry.

I also value your feedback. To provide the best home school information and support to home schooling families, maybe you would like to submit a comment or provide some feedback on how I can make my website better.

I would love to hear from you!

For general COMMENTS or FEEDBACK... contact me using the Contact Me form - way at the bottom of this page. :)

I look forward to hearing from you soon! :)
To your home school success,
Heather :)

Have A Homeschooling Problem or Question?

My highschool calculus teacher always said, "No question is ever too dumb to ask!" As a result I went from a failing math grade to A+, just by asking questions. :)

So... Do you have a homeschool question or problem? Ask away!

Maybe you are considering homeschooling and wondering if its legal, or are experiencing some homeschooling difficulties. Perhaps you are afraid your kids will miss out, or won't develop properly if you decide to homeschool. Share your questions, problems and/or fears... we'll try to help! :)

I just wanted to share a quick story on my journey to homeschooling.

After watching our three oldest nieces go through the public school system, and having numerous friends who have had problems with public schools, when I found out I was expecting a child, I knew I would be homeschooling. I started out by doing ALOT of research, mainly on the internet. And found dozens of websites with so much free information it was amazing, and a blessing!

And since he has been old enough, I have worked daily with him on the basics. As soon as his little sister is old enough, I will be working with her too. We haven't worked out a curriculum yet, because he's still young, but thanks to your website, I'm well on my way, and I look forward to watching my children learn and grow!

Thank you, Heather for putting all this wonderful information together!
Alicia, Oklahoma City, OK
