About the Presenter:

Kim Kautzer loves to help parents feel more confident about teaching writing. She is the co-author of WriteShop, honored as one of Cathy Duffy’s 100 Top Picks for Homeschool Curriculum. Kim and her husband Jim began homeschooling in 1989. All three of their children are homeschool graduates. Two are married now, and the Kautzers enjoy a passel of grandkids and their sometimes-empty nest in Southern California.

My Mission Statement

When you combine blank paper, reluctant child, and insecure parent, you create a recipe that’s probably doomed to fail. This makes writing one of the most challenging subjects homeschoolers must teach. I love to encourage and equip apprehensive parents, showing them that teaching writing is much more objective than they think, and that with the right tools at their fingertips, they can encourage and motivate their struggling writers.

My mission is to:

1. Provide parents with tools and skills to teach and evaluate writing effectively.
2. Help parents approach the writing process more objectively.
3. Develop and promote parent (and student) confidence.
4. Inspire successful writers!
