28 Jun Gernert, Tarla
Tarla Gernert Started Homeschool Connections in 2002 because it was a program that she needed to help educate and homeschool her own children. She wanted a program that brought in experts to teach her children in specific areas, and (along with several other families) Homeschool Connections Educational Services was created. The program quickly grew to multiple locations serving hundreds of families and continues to offer high-quality classes taught by passionate teachers to this day.
More recently, she felt the need to start a program that met more frequently and gave parents more help. This became a reality when HighPoint Hybrid was created in 2017. HighPoint is a two-day-a-week program that is similar to a part-time private school, where the students are taught in class and parents are guided on what to teach at home the rest of the week.
Tarla earned her B.S. Degree in Education at Liberty University and has taught in a variety of schools including public, private, and homeschooling programs. Her true passion is helping people figure out how best to educate their children and prepare them for the rest of their lives. She is very knowledgeable about a wide variety of programs and services available in this area and understands the challenges when children are not thriving in their current educational situation. She is available by appointment to give guidance, recommendations, and share resources to help you develop a plan that will work better for your child.
