" We use NH Next Step Learning for curriculum guidance and annual homeschool education portfolio evaluations. When we first reached out to Mrs. Brewster, not only we received unconditional support, but we also found hope. Hope is a major component to the educational development, as every child learns differently. The staff is very knowledgeable about what homeschool programs would best fit your child's needs, whether they are kinesthetic, auditory, or visual learners . They offer a variety of hands on and technological suggestions to aide the educational growth of all. We concluded our first year of homeschooling with a professional evaluation composed by Mrs. Brewster, which reflected our son's success as well as the success of curriculum guidance. We are very lucky to have Mrs. Brewster a part of our son's homeschool education. Thank you NH Next Step Learning!". Beth B.
"Kira was recommended to me by a friend. This being our first year homeschooling I wasn't sure what to expect. Kira made the process very easy, especially using Zoom and Venmo, and I was pleased with the whole process from start to finish. Would definitely recommend her and will use her again if we continue to homeschool. " Amber P.

"During the academic year 2020-21 Kira Brewster was the evaluator for our home school curriculum. We taught 3 teenagers, aged 13, 15, and 17 in academic in areas such as climate change, scientific observation, New Hampshire history and communities, essay-based literacy, reading, boat-building, and metal work. In an initial meeting we discussed in detail our approach to teaching and learning as experiential, highly integrated across academic subjects, and student centered. Kira understood this approach and made a number of helpful comments that made our teaching and learning process better. When we met at the end of the year to review student portfolios Kira did a thorough and detailed presentation orally and gave us a written summary as well. Both were excellent and captured the teaching and learning we engaged in throughout the year. We would definitely recommend Kira as a home school evaluator without reservation. She did great job.

"I had my son’s homeschooling evaluations done by Kira Brewster for two years now. She was very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. She was very quick to put together all the paperwork that I provided with my son’s work and progress that he had done through the year, and write up an evaluation to provide for me. She also gave me great recommendations on some additional ideas to work on with my son, that might help him to reach some of his homeschooling goals . If you are looking for a great homeschooling evaluation, give Kira Brewster a call!" Michelle L.

Mrs Brewster is encouraging, professional, organized, knowledgeable and resourceful. She makes each session enjoyable and builds confidence in her students. In addition, Mrs Brewster is our homeschool evaluator and does an excellent job reviewing my children’s academic achievements and writing our year-end portfolio reviews.
