Catholic Homeschool Consulting coaching

How do you balance LIFE and HOMESCHOOL? 

Do you often wonder if you are enough for your kids? How can you find time to teach all your children at multiple levels? Do you feel overwhelmed?

I am here to help! You are not alone, I've been there and done that!!

I passionately believe that homeschooling is all about FAMILY, FAITH and WONDER! 

It is NOT EASY, by any stretch of the imagination, right?

That's why I am dedicated to helping you become the homeschool mom that you want to be!

You see deep down, I believe you've got this! 

I truly mean it! You are the best teacher, EVER, for your kids! You are unique and have a heart especially made for the beautiful children God has "loaned" out to you for this brief moment of time before you launch them into this big wide world!

Your kids are awesome and unique, and they have God-given passions and talents waiting to emerge and serve! 

Your heartstrings have tugged you towards this path of wonder and discovery....to homeschool...not by mistake...but on purpose!

I am here to encourage, guide and recommend a real, doable plan for your unique family!

The grace of your "YES" at marriage and the "YES" to openness to life, gave you the best and most effective way to teach your children! Let's tap into that grace, let's solve that big struggle, or doubt, or overwhelm you are struggling with right now!

Who is Coach Paola?

I am a mom of 7 children, all now graduates of my very own and very real homeschool (ages 30-18 and notice I did not say perfect!) I bring my love of my faith, marriage, family and my grateful heart! I bring to each coaching session, my 25 years of home education experience that is truly family-tested! 

I also bring the vast knowledge I gained from founding and running Emmanuel Books for the past 20+ years, where I personally researched and sought the very best books/resources for families...Always through a Catholic lens, always with realistic goals in mind to bring mom inner peace! It was during that time too, that I had the honor to consult with hundreds of families to bring them encouragement, focus and JOY into their own unique homeschool journey!

Want help right now?

If you need a helping hand and heart, then give me a call.

This first call, the FREE Discovery Call (usually about 20 minutes) will be just that...discovery of the "why you homeschool" and the uniqueness of you and each member of your family! It will be a chance for you to let me know what is your particular struggle right now!

You will get to know me a little bit better too and see if you and I are in the rhythm you need to start or continue on this amazing homeschool journey!

Sound like an exciting journey?? You bet it is. 

I am here for you!

It all begins with a FREE Discovery Call....if you are eager to get started, apply for an appointment by clicking this link: https://emmanuelbooks.com/pages/discovery-call

What happens after the Discovery Call?

My homeschool journey did not happen without the help and guidance of special and dear guides along the way...AND there is so very much I have learned from these guides I can share with you!

I learned that changing my mindset of "progress not perfection"make a HUGE difference. I learned what subjects to do, where and when, and even what subjects to skip (YES, I did say skip). I learned how to ignore "adult peer pressure" and TRUST my instincts and tap into God's grace to widen my view....I can help you...

 Success Stories:

"If I ever felt a homeschool struggle, it wasn’t for long.  I knew Paola would have the answer and often she called me before I even called her!  She knew.  She anticipated.  Her advice was personal.  She knew the questions to ask me and she knew where to direct me.  Her wide breadth of knowledge regarding materials and resources…even experiences and feelings of a homeschool mom…gave her the ability to always have a good suggestion, or a plan B.  She gave assurances that it would all work out.  It has.  For 12 years now, and every stage of homeschooling, K-12 and across all curriculum, I continue to rely on her and our regular talks.  I couldn’t imagine not doing so.  Paola is a touchstone. She’s calming and caring and if there was a Doctorate of homeschooling, she’d deserve it!" - Allison G.

"Paola's calm, confident, and expert guidance was a key determinant in choosing to homeschool.  She helped us create a curriculum that challenged our daughter while keeping her passionate about her studies. Paola is a true guardian angel." -Tricia Q.

"I’m so grateful for your contribution to homeschooling and to helping parents share their Faith with their children. May God continue to bless your family and your business.” –Nancy M.

“Finding you was truly a blessing! You are by far the best that there is...I just wanted to thank you, and let you know just how much you've blessed this family.  Our journey would not be the same without you, and for that we're grateful.” -Mary B.

“Thank you so much! As long as we are homeschooling, you’re it. Even when the day comes that we are all finished, you’re still going to be it :-)  Thanks for listening! I feel like you are not only a partner but a true friend in Christ. May God continue to bless your family, your business, your everything.” – Kiley G.

"We are participating in a co-op this year for the first time and a couple of the tutors made some last minute changes in their materials lists.  Thank you for your help and your quick response to my question. God bless - Kris D.

“I would like to thank you for your help choosing a reading program for us.  We love Little Angel Readers.  My son now enjoys phonics and is sounding out words.  He enjoys the crafts as well.  Thank you so much for your help choosing this program.  We are now enjoying this time together.  You have many great ideas for our future in home schooling.” Katrina C.

“ I am so very thrilled with everything from you.  It is all worth every penny!  I recommend your resources to everyone whom I know in Catholic education....I am so very excited about that and I already have given Emmanuel Books a "plug" to the headmaster and others at the school.  Your organization is so wonderful!  Please keep it going!!  God bless you!” Sister T.
