Stephanie Sewell is an Alternative Education Consultant and Mentor who works with families seeking guidance and support with their child or teen’s educational journey. Her approach is based on well-being: she helps to bring out and validate the young person’s intrinsic motivation not only for learning, but for life. Together, Stephanie and her clients create education paths that allow the whole family to thrive. In her role as mentor, Stephanie meets regularly with teens and children to help them reclaim their sense of self and step into owning their learning.
Stephanie’s work is informed by her experience as an educational researcher, school teacher, home/unschool parent and co-op organizer, children’s choir conductor, and Board Chair for Compass Centre for Self-Directed Learning.
Stephanie believes that each young person deserves and is capable of co-creating an educational path that works for them.
2024 CONFERENCE SESSION
PAST CONFERENCE SESSIONS
SESSION: HOMESCHOOLING TEENS - IT'S ALL ABOUT R.A.P. (RELATIONSHIP, APPROACH, & PROCESS)
Join Stephanie to explore the in's and out's of homeschooling during the teen years. What is at the root of positive parent - teen homeschooling experiences? How does this influence our approach to both parenting and education? How do we plan our days, weeks, months and years with all this in mind? Participants of all ages will have the chance to explore and challenge their assumptions around education, to consider how the teen-parent relationship can evolve, and to let go of "should's" in favour of a future that is determined by the teen's own educational and life path.
SESSION: Q&A for Parents of Teens
Education Coach and Consultant Stephanie Sewell helps teens and their parents navigate the world without school. This Live Q&A is a chance to ask your questions about anything from “Is it actually ok for my teen to just leave school?” to “How will they ever get motivated to do anything other than scroll through TikTok or play Minecraft?” to “What about University?” Stephanie works with teens and their parents through all stages of these transitions, helping them to confidently and happily own and direct their education. What are your burning questions? Join us for this session to ask them, and to hear and learn from others’ questions too!
