In the past few years, for a number of reasons, there’s been a dramatic increase in the number of families choosing to homeschool. Many had no choice but to opt into an “at home” model during the pandemic, and that created a number of situations where parents decided that home was the best place for their children to learn.
Today’s guest, Philip Mott is an expert, not only in education, but in homeschooling.
As a student in his early years Philip struggled. He was disengaged and did not take a liking to school in the least. Over the years as a reluctant learner, Philip started understanding more and more about the education system and diving into the reasons why children feel the way he did. This led him to believe that a systemic issue existed in the way we educate and relate to children. This sparked a passion in Philip that drove him to become a teacher himself. His vision is to help kids and parents take an alternative approach to education in order to have the best outcome for both student and parent. Philip is changing the way families look at education timelines and support while working with their kids.
Philip Mott is a writer, community facilitator and father. Philip holds a Bachelor’s of Science in Elementary Education. His focus is on empowering students to be self-directed learners and honoring the humanity of our children in all our interactions with them. Philip writes for newspapers, magazines and blogs covering alternative education approaches and homeschooling. He is also in the process of writing his first book. He is the creator and curator of philipmott.com – where he shares articles, essays, and other media about the ways adults and children interact.
