I remember pulling my son out of school because I knew he deserved a better education than what he was receiving.  I wish I had someone like Dr. Tiffany McKinnon-Russell of Thoughts of a Homeschool Mom to guide me through the homeschooling process. 

What do you do?

Founder Dr. Tiffany McKinnon-Russell told MOD&ALT Health Magazine, “My services are two-fold. I provide homeschool resources, training, and consulting for new homeschooling families. I also provide coaching to offer guidance, encouragement, and a safe space for moms.

What makes you different?

Your family is unique and that matters.

McKinnon-Russell says.”My business is known for fully embracing the uniqueness of your child and family in the process of creating your homeschool program. Everything begins with gaining a clear understanding of your family dynamic and how your child learns.

How your Business Got Started?

No one like to feel overwhelmed.

McKinnon-Russell explains.”I started my business because I wanted to save other new homeschooling moms from the overwhelm and confusion I experienced at the beginning of my journey. My goal is to help moms teach their children with confidence, clarity, and creativity, without worrying about looking like everyone else!

Biggest Win?

I helped 5 moms like me.

McKinnon-Russell adds, “My biggest win happened when I launched my first email course in 2017 and helped five moms gain clarity around their homeschooling style. I knew then, that I was on to something and I wanted to help as many moms as I could. This experience also helped me gain more confidence around sharing my homeschool knowledge and committing to empowering other moms like me!”

What would you do differently?

McKinnon-Russell explains, “I wouldn’t worry about looking and sounding like anyone else. Being too concerned with fitting in, instead of standing out, was a waste of precious time. The good news is that I’ve learned that lesson and moved on. I know my approach is unique and necessary.”

Interesting Fact?

McKinnon-Russell shared, “I very rarely work without my daughter somewhere close by. She is my inspiration and my biggest cheerleader. When I need a break, we have dance battles!”
