What if you never had to beg your child to stay on task during a homeschool lesson again?

With The Captivated Learner, there’s no need for rewards, consequences, or begging just to get your child to do their schoolwork. You’ll learn how to engage your child in learning within 5 days so that learning can be enjoyable and fun for all.


Tell me if this sounds like you:

What if there was a way to help your child become a self-motivated learner?

That’s exactly why I created The Captivated Learner. I want you to get back your energy and confidence that this homeschooling journey is the best choice for your family. I want you to watch your child leave your house and know that they are 100% prepared for whatever life throws at them.

If you want to engage your child in your homeschool lessons without using rewards or consequences in as little as 5 days, then The Captivated Learner is for you.

Inside The Captivated Learner, you'll learn how to...

Right now, you’re probably struggling with…

  • Getting your child to pay attention and actually do their work without having to hover
  • Having the confidence to continue homeschooling and making sure your child is prepared for whatever they choose to do after homeschool
  • That nagging doubt that you’re not doing enough, you’re not smart enough, or you’re not fun enough to actively engage your child

But Just Imagine if…

  • You and your child woke up each day excited for the days lessons
  • At the end of the day, you’ve both enjoyed being with each other, learning together, and building a stronger relationship
  • You had the confidence to teach your child without having to use rewards, consequences, or drill & kill the passion out of them

Let’s get started with The Captivated Learner today!

Hey There! I'm Amanda!

There’s one thing I know for sure…

Letting go of societal pressures and creating a learning lifestyle centered around your family is the best way to have consistency, balance, and joy within your homeschool.

Too often, homeschoolers waste time and energy (which let’s face it, we don’t have) trying to figure it all out. You’re probably spending too much time…

  • piecing together resources to reach each of your children’s ability levels
  • agonizing over which curriculum will be best
  • wondering if you’re doing enough and what more you can do

… all while trying to balance your housework and homeschool. And maybe, just maybe, you can stay awake for an hour after the kids go to bed just to have some uninterrupted time to yourself.

What I end up seeing all the time is way too many homeschool moms frustrated and doubting if they can really do this homeschool thing.

They constantly ask themselves…

And eventually, they decide to throw in the towel because maybe this whole homeschool thing wasn’t meant to be.

But it doesn’t have to be that way

I have worked with thousands of homeschool families, like you, who are at that sweet spot of “I really want this to work” and “Is this ever going to work?”

Maybe you have:

  • created strict schedules and/or looping schedules
  • bought every planner imaginable
  • used timers, thematic bins, and lists
  • felt like you are doing ALL THE THINGS

… and you really are trying, and with the best of intentions! But it all starts with getting your child to engage in your lessons. Without an engaged child, you might as well be talking to the wall.

That’s why I created The Captivated Learner. I’m taking my experience as a classroom teacher, meshing it together with my parenting experience, then adding a bit of research based evidence on child-led learning to create an easy to implement system to engage your child without using rewards or consequences.

Here’s what you’ll learn inside The Captivated Learner

Lesson 1: You’ll learn about my not so secret uncurriculumizing method and how to use curriculum the right way. Curriculum can be the death of your homeschool, so this lesson brings you safely back down to what really matters.

Lesson 2: Learn why looping schedules can harm your child’s ability to retain information and dramatically lower their motivation to learn. With the controversial unlooping schedule, you’ll free yourself from the “am I doing enough” question and gain the confidence in letting your child determine what’s enough.

Lesson 3: Create a relaxed routine around your family’s unique needs by following The F.R.E.S.H. Rule. Plus you’ll leave with some tips on how to make sure you get everything done including the cleaning, cooking, and a little time for self-care.

Lesson 4: This is my favorite time of the day. Learn about Project Time and why it’s so important in creating a self-motivated learner. Get my step by step guide to starting Project Time and what exactly your role is as a learning guide.

Lesson 5: You’ll learn how everything your child learns is interconnected making it easier to build confidence in knowing your child is learning enough. Create an Interest Mind Map to gather ideas for lessons to teach and child-led activities to lay out during Project Time.

And did I mention you can have a more engaged, self-motivated learner in as little as one week?

Yup. This method is fast.

You don’t need tons of time to make this happen.

Actually, “tons of time” is kind of the antithesis of this whole thing.

The name of the game with The Captivated Learner is speed and simplicity.

And of course, a self-motivated learner.

Because of that, I’ve laid out this quick workshop so you have an easy-to-implement assignment each day, five days in a row.

Even if you only have a couple of minutes in the evening after the kids go to bed…

Or a couple of hours here and there while you’re trying to run the rest of your household…

You can make a few small tweaks and see results fast.

Who is The Captivated Learner For?

The Captivated Learner is right for any—yes, any—type of homeschooler.

The New Homeschooler

Avoid the burnout and frustration that comes with homeschooling by starting this journey off on the right foot. As a new homeschooler, The Captivated Learner will give you a strong foundation to your homeschooling days.

The Burnt Out Homeschooler

You may have been homeschooling for a few years, but that motivation is starting to fade out. Your child is over the initial excitement of having their parents be the teacher. You may find yourself using bribes, rewards, or consequences just to get done a 10 minute lesson. The Captivated Learner helps you simplify your homeschool days and engage your learner in a way that gives them more freedom.

The Seasoned Homeschooler

You’ve been doing this homeschool thing for years. You know how it’s done. But why not try something new? The Captivated Learner helps take some of the work off your plate and places that responsibility onto your child. Don’t worry, you’re still in control of the learning… just don’t tell your child that.

I don’t want you to captivate your learner someday… I want you to get started TODAY. Because let’s face it, we only have so much time before our kiddos go off into this big ol’ world without us.

What Others Are Saying About Homegrown Learning Resources...


Having a child that just wants to play all day is a good thing. Your child is always learning. Inside the course, I show you how to find the learning experiences within their play.

You’re in luck! The best thing about The Captivated Learner is that your child doesn’t need to listen to you. I show you how to keep the control over their learning while also giving them a bit more freedom.

Not entirely true. You will still be using a curriculum, but I’m going to show you the right way to use a curriculum so your child is more engaged. We’ll talk about why your curriculum isn’t working and how to fix that.

The Captivated Learner has 5 short lessons with quick actionable steps that can be easily implemented. I’m a homeschooler too. In fact, I’m a single, work at home, homeschooling mama. I know what limited time is. That’s why I took out all the fluff and only gave you what you need to know to implement and see results.

Fall behind of what? Grade levels and standards are arbitrary assessments. You have no idea what your child will need to know in order to succeed in life. Instead of focusing on retaining information or skills, The Captivated Learner helps you raise a self-motivated learner so that they can tackle any challenge that might come their way once they walk out your door.

Do you really? Open and go may be a time saver, but it’s not always the best choice for educating children. The Captivated Learner teaches you how to minimize your homeschooling experience while maximizing on the learning. You’ll end up with more time and energy once it’s all said and done.

Due to the digital nature of The Captivated Learner—and the fact that you could consume it in just a few, short hours—we do not offer refunds.

It starts as soon as you join! This is a self-paced, instant access, quickie workshop, so all you have to do is sign up and you’ll get everything delivered straight to your inbox. So you can start today! Or tomorrow! Or next week! Or next year! (Though my vote is for starting sooner rather than later!)
