Homeschooling With Confidence

Homeschool With Confidence online course for Muslim Mums

Are you looking for a beginners guide to help you start home educating or are you already in the homeschool trenches and in need of a reboot to help you fall back in love with it?
How would it feel to start building the homeschool of your dreams insha'Allah? One inspired by your own unique family; not mine or anyone else's; but yours (is this sounding too cheesy?).

Alhamdulillah following the success of the beta group who just recently completed this course, I've decided to rerun it after Ramadan and it is going to be BIGGER, better and more supportive than before insha'Allah. 

We have jumped from the original 4 week workshop and grown into a 16 week course that is designed to provide you with detailed information, support and guidance all in the same place so that you can focus on building a happy thriving homeschool you are confident, excited and passionate about bi'ithnillah. 
It is perfect for mums in the early stages of homeschool and mums preparing to start in the future as well as current home educating mums in need of a boot camp reboot and inspiration boost. I have to tell you I went through a massive homeschool reboot myself when putting this course together which makes me even more excited to share with you again second time round.

I'll set out a general overview of the course below.

What this course sets out to do insha'Allah


Ever since I jumped into home education a decade ago I've always believed we could benefit from training-day-kind-of-events in the same way that teachers have training days in school. Not because the home educator is a teacher, but rather it is the concept of pursuing opportunities to continue our professional development. It was the desire to keep growing my homeschool understanding and find motivation that I always craved.  

This course will do just that for you with so much more insha'Allah!

Over sixteen weeks (that's just shy of four months!) we will explore some guiding principles to help you kick start your adventure or provide a reboot. Not so that you won't make mistakes (we all do), and not so that I can tell you the right way to home educate (because there isn't one); but so that you can step into your homeschool and build it up with greater certainty in your ability to succeed insha'Allah knowing what options are available to you. 

Homeschool With Confidence course for Mums

Why this course?


When you want to understand home education, it is not the teachers or the educationists who can help with information and support. Yes they can certainly benefit. But it isn't these who can provide a comprehensive understanding of educating at home. When you want to know about homeschool then you have to go to the homeschooling mum.
The homeschool mother is what I like to call the university professor to everything that is homeschool. This course will provide you with everything you need to find your homeschool feet all in one place. My objective is not to provide a one-size-fits-all doctrine to getting the best of homeschool. My objective is to help you carve a path that meets the individual needs of your family. There isn't one-size-fits-all approach and this is the beauty of home education.

I have combined my experience as a home educator together with my work speaking to and supporting mums accross the world since 2011, to design a course that will help you find the answers that meet the unique needs of your family; not mine or anyone else's....because there are no two homeschools that are the same.

As cliche as it may sound, putting this course together really has been a labor of love for me. I have gained a wealth of experience over the past decade that I am passionate about sharing and trained as a coach to help me do this effectively insha'Allah.

16 Homeschool Master Classes for the Muslim Mum


Each week offers a new Master Class that you can join in live for or view the replay any time more convenient to you. Whether you show up to the live class or catch the recordings later you're still able to ask your questions and interact with fellow participants in our own private forum (it is not Facebook since I know many of you don't like to use it).

My mission is to make things easy for you and so each class is accompanied by a set of carefully presented detailed notes so that you don't have to worry about missing anything important. 

Week 1: Introducing Home Education
Our first week introduces the concept of home education, which is often confused for being school-at-home so we will address what it is and what it is not.

Week 2: Benefits Of Homeschool
We'll take a look at some of the benefits of home education; exploring them in relation to academics, family, social, Islam and general homeschool perks.

Week 3: Busting The Myths
Home education has many misconceptions. In this class we will bust the 9 most common homeschool myths that hold many people back from starting and families often worry about.

Week 4: Deschooling Explained 
It can be really difficult to shake off and break away from the school mindset. To help you do this it is important to go through a deschooling process....even if your child has never been in school; because you have. In our fourth class together we'll walk you through deschooling your children if they have been in school, as well as deschooling yourself. 

Week 5: Facing Your Homeschool Fears
It is not uncommon to have anxieties around home educating  your family. Fears can be helpful by keeping you on your toes, however they shouldn't hold you back. In the Facing Your Homeschool Fears class, we'll explore your worries around homeschooling so we can crush them one by one insha'Allah.

Week 6: Homeschool Styles
Are you confused about homeschool methods and education philosophies? Do you have to follow a method or can you freestyle it? In this class we'll explore education beliefs and take a look at Montessori, Charlotte Mason, Unschooling, Unit Studies, Classical, Eclectic and warn the dangers of Waldorf for the Muslim family.

Week 7: Run Your Home Like A Boss
Whether you have a type-A personality that craves order, the inherent characteristics of a sloppy teen or something in between, we'll take a look at strategies to manage the home so that you can spend more time doing the things that matter.

Week 8: Building Your Routine
Confused by schedules and routines. You'll discover the difference between each and learn the easy way to build up your homeschool day in a sustainable way.

Week 9: Creating A Morning Basket
Morning basket, morning time and circle time are all used to mean the same thing; a period of time where the family comes together to start the day with read alouds, games and gentle learning activities. In this class we'll take a deep-dive to look at how you can start one in your home no matter the age of your children; from tots to teens.

Week 10: Organising Homeschool
I'll introduce you to three tools for you and your children to help keep your homeschool ticking smoothly without guilt, pressure or stress!

Week 11: Knowing Your Children
This thing we call education is not something we just "do to" our children, rather it is something they are part of. They are at the center of it all. I'll walk you through getting to reallly know your children so that you can utilise that information to address their needs and find meaningful learning opportunities unique to them.

Week 12: To Plan Or Not To Plan
Discover simple lesson planning tools to help you design your own lessons at home as well as discover what you can do if planning ahead really doesn't suit you. 

Week 13: Inviting Learning
Learning happens when children are interested and engaged. We'll investigate the natural wonder of children and look at ways that encourage happiness and willingness to learn. 

Week 14: Creating Your Homeschool Space
It is not the size of your home or budget that matters when it comes to creating a homeschool space that invites children to discover, learn and create. We'll take a look at how you can carve a home space that is conductive to encouraging organic interest and learning with your family.

Week 15: Learning Toolkit
Learning experiences are not restricted to a lined exercise book. I want to show you fun, engaging methods you can use to bring everyday learning to life at home.

Week 16: Parting Advice and Q&A
In our final Masterclass, I'll share some homeschool insights that it usually takes mums years to learn together with my parting advice as you set forward into your new journey before ending with a final Q&A session.
