A dream that unfolded from the imagination of my 6 year old daughter...


As a mom and educator, navigating the struggles of my own child in the public school system, we intimately understand the challenges faced by parents of struggling learners.

We get it – the challenges, the uncertainties. Join us in celebrating this extraordinary journey from a child's dream to a haven of education and support. Your family's unique adventure with Arete awaits!

Arete began as an after-school haven for over 40 students, including my own, evolving into a homeschooling solution for families seeking a customized and meaningful educational pathway.


Today, Arete thrives as a private learning program, proudly boasting a divergent approach that nurtures a love for learning and community building.

Tiniest Action

Progress begins with the 

If nothing changes, nothing changes. So, immediately make a difference in how you and your learner experience education by reaching out for support. 

Rather than a "sales call," I treat each initial conversation as an information session where you tell me about the difficulties you and your learner have experienced and what has and hasn't worked. 

Some families reach out in a crisis. However, I encourage you to take action before things escalate. Your learner and I will thrive in an intervention situation pre-crisis and will be able to make more progress than you ever imagined but always hoped for.
