The College Essay Guy Podcast: A Practical Guide to College Admissions

Sep 23, 2019

This is the first of two episodes on homeschooling and self-directed learning, something that as the father of a four year-old I am way into. My guest is Becca Orlowski, a teacher and consultant with more than two decades of experience in the independent homeschooling world. On this episode we talk about: 

  • What are some common homeschooling myths? 
  • Is it true, for example, that homeschooling is “too much work” for any parent in their right minds?
  • Are colleges biased towards homeschoolers… against… neither or both?
  • What kinds of folks choose to homeschool and can parents homeschool and work? 
  • Different homeschooling styles, how homeschooling academics differ from public schools, and even nitty gritty tips like the practical differences for homeschoolers applying to college and the amount of detail homeschoolers need in their transcripts
  • As always, lots of resources and recommendations...
