I have used Terri as our evaluator for four years now. We love Terri’s gentle, encouraging approach. My sons were extremely nervous the first time they had to talk to her and by the time they finished that first phone call, you would think they were best friends. My boys look forward to showing Terri their schoolwork each year!
Terri never hesitates to promptly answer questions any time of year. I have sent her a lot of emails! 🙂 I value her advice and opinions so much that I finally signed up for her mentoring program a few months ago. This has been a sanity-saver for me! Even though I consider myself a veteran homeschooler, I feel so much more confident in our plan for this upcoming year because of all the feedback I’ve received from Terri.
I highly recommend Terri for anything you need, whether it be a yearly evaluation, a one-time consult, or her mentoring program.

Terri’s mentoring program is SO WORTH the cost. Whenever I talk to her I encourage her to take on more clients. Her experience, wisdom and intuitive insight has been so helpful for me and for my homeschool. I have four boys ages seven to 15 and Terri has helped me with every one of them. Her experience is unique in that she has not only has taught all ages and grade levels, but she is also an experienced homeschooling mother herself. This makes Terri uniquely qualified to understand the challenges we face as homeschooling parents. What I love most about her is her positive attitude. After a phone session with her, I feel like I can do anything!

We are an unschooling family, and have been since we started homeschooling several years ago. As soon as I read through Terri’s website, I knew that she probably understood our lifestyle and way of learning. She did! I know my children are making significant progress every year, but to hear it from Terri each year brings a certain peace of mind that I would not find elsewhere. I highly recommend Terri as your homeschool evaluator.

We have never had anyone else evaluate our children. I found Terri through her website several years ago, and was impressed with her knowledge and generosity from the beginning. She as patient with my “newbie” questions, and generous with her time and knowledge. My son and daughter look forward to talking to “Ms. Terri” every year!

When I brought my 10-year-old daughter home from Ethiopia three years ago,
homeschooling was not in my plan. Because she spoke not a word of English, I
decided to “temporarily” keep her at home until she learned the language and got more
comfortable with our culture. As I said, that was three years ago and two evaluations
later with Terri Hedrick.
Why would I recommend Terri? Her credentials caught my attention first and then I
reviewed her educational philosophy and her method of performing annual evaluation.
We met for the first time when I had just been homeschooling for about 8
months. I brought way too much paperwork and I’m sure I dominated the conversation
for the first half-hour with questions and worries. She was so reassuring to both
my daughter (who was also there) and to me! She gave us recommendations for
curriculum and inspired us with her proactive, yet comfortable professionalism. She
is practical! During the year, I know that Terri is only an e-mail away and her website
offers a wealth of information.
My daughter is now reading way above grade level and is rapidly catching up in other
subject areas. She keeps her own reading log to show “Ms. Terri” when we next meet.

I was so nervous when I made the decision to homeschool. None of my friends at the time or family understood. I had a consultation with Terri who served as an invaluable resource and continues to be a constant form of encouragement and support. I’ll be eternally grateful.
