Why Use A Muse Package?

"Jill was instrumental in helping me get started with homeschooling. She is a wealth of information and was able to advise me in the best way to begin. Thanks to her and her support I am now on my third year of homeschooling and have never been happier with the way my child's educational journey is going."

A SoCal Parent

"Suji has been a patient sounding board, responsive and kind, when I have agonized over how to best meet my child's educational needs. She has brought objectivity, sensitivity, and consistent encouragement when dealing with our particular challenges."

An SF Bay Area Parent

“Farrar has her own philosophy for her kids, but was very receptive to where we are and what our lifestyle and philosophy are.  She made suggestions that fit our life and was not pushy or judgmental about what she thought we "should" be doing.”

A Washington DC Parent

"I was so overwhelmed with the college process. I was unsure how to approach it as a homeschooler and was in need of help. My teenager was also in need of guidance. Working with Jill was such a wonderful experience for both of us. We are so happy that we found her and thankful for all she was able to accomplish for us."

A SoCal Parent

"Dear Suji, you are a warm person and have an ability to make people instantly at ease when they talk to you. You are resourceful when it comes to identifying learning opportunities and educational options, and are always ready to share your experience and wisdom. I am very glad to have met you on our journey of seeking much needed challenge to stimulate my son's intellectual growth and development. Thank you for your help and encouragement."

An SF Bay Area Parent

"Dear Jill, thank you for everything you have done for my family. I honestly cannot state how much you have changed our lives. We were all struggling with school and my daughter's learning disabilities and did not even know we had another choice.

Through you we have discovered this whole other world of homeschooling and have been able to provide an environment for my daughter in which she thrives. Thank you again for everything!"

A SoCal Parent

"Dear Suji, thank you so much for helping and guiding me in curriculum choices and tutor pros and cons through the years. Your availability and willingness to share what has worked for you, while also sharing advantages and disadvantages of a particular approach, have been so helpful."
