Mary Liz Youtz, M. Ed. is a Pennsylvania certified teacher and Principal. I also hold a Reading Specialist degree. I have over 15 years of classroom experience and 10 years as Elementary Principal. I teach for Harrisburg Area Community College as an adjunct. I hold certification from the Association of Christian Schools International as well, and have taught in a private Christian School. I have been an evaluator since the PA homeschool law was put into effect. My college level teaching has given me experience with older students and I am able to offer the PA Credits for Graduation fulfilling the requirements for the PA Homeschoolers Accreditation Agency diploma as well as several other organizations for diplomas. I am also certified to conduct achievement testing (Stanford and Iowa) for your child.

I rejoice when I consider the education that you, the first teachers of your children, will make in your child's life. I believe that you are the first and best teacher for your child. You know your child's learning style and interests. I conduct the evaluation time, about an hour in length, usually at my home. I try to make this a relaxed and enjoyable time for your child and you. After reviewing the log and portfolio with your child through asking questions about what he/she has learned, offering curriculum and experiential suggestions and information, I will write a report which is then submitted to the school superintendent. You will be able to take this report with you at the end of our session. I invite the parent(s) to sit with the child during the interview/evaluation process. I am happy to answer your questions throughout the year. Feel free to contact me with your concerns or questions or more information.
