About New Heights Online Learning
My name is JanElle Hoffman.
I put my education degree and teaching certification to work in a traditional classroom for seven years before my promotion to motherhood (times five, including two sets of twins!). When my youngest started school, I returned to teaching. However, the educational landscape had changed considerably and I traded my chalkboard for a laptop!
In 2013, I began teaching with an accredited private online school. I was impressed with the benefits teacher-supported online learning provide to students and their families. Families who travel or live globally, students with acting or sports careers, families and students looking for alternative education options – all were well served by an online learning format enhanced by teachers.
I began to imagine how I might bring the benefits of teacher-supported online learning to more students and families. After all, there are many who are using online curriculum on their own; not enrolled in a school.
I am embarking on an adventure called “New Heights Online Learning.” I chose the name because I had seen firsthand the new heights that students could achieve through online learning with the help of a teacher.
Learning is like climbing a mountain – hard work yet rewarding. You are more likely to be successful on the adventure if there is someone to show you the way, encourage you, lend a hand through the difficult sections, and celebrate with you when you reach your goal. That is my vision as an online learning coach – to lend my experience and expertise to help every step of the way.
The other reason for “new heights”? I live in Colorado – what more can I say?! 🙂
At New Heights Online Learning, I offer coaching services for students in grades 3-8. As a coach I grade student work, track and report student progress to parents, and help students with questions. I can tutor, too! I also facilitate online classes, where students can collaborate with other students in a safe, closed, online classroom.
I am ready to work with your family to create an individualized learning plan for your student and assist in choosing an online curriculum, if needed.
Thank you for stopping by! If you have any questions about how I can help your family achieve their educational goals, please contact me!
