The A+ Parents podcast, Hosted by “Mr. D Math Live” Founder Dennis DiNoia, speaks with parents, homeschool organizations, and homeschool influencers on how to help our students become self-directed learners.

Our programs encourage students to discover how to learn vs what to learn and how to teach others what they are learning along the way. Mr. D Math Live programs empower students to correct their work, discover their own ah-ha moments and develop lifelong self-mastery skills.

We share tips, tricks and stories from educators on how students can think for themselves by teaching them to operate with free will, accountability, honor, and respect.

Our unique approach awakens students to discover their own unique expression of how they view education. They communicate what they’ve discovered and apply their knowledge to “the world outside of a classroom.” We focus on multiple learning styles allowing students to discover their own strengths in how they learn.

After all, what does every parent truly want? We all want our children to have a great life beyond what their report card says. That is what it means to be an A+ Parent. Grades are important. But not as important as the lifetime of happiness through self-discovery and knowledge mastery.

Welcome to the A+ Parent podcast and thank you for listening.

    Teaching Kids To Be Independent Learners | Erica Orosco Cruz

    Teaching Kids To Be Independent Learners | Erica Orosco Cruz

    Erica Orosco Cruz is an early childhood development expert and parent coach who helps children, families, and teachers thrive and grow together on the foundation of mutual respect. She is certified through RIE (Resources for Infant Educarers) and the state of California and is also trained in the Waldorf methods.
     
    Erica’s passion for supporting families stems from her own experience as a mother of 4 boys (ranging in ages from 1 to 25!), and a daughter who set out to parent in a different way than she was as a child. While raising her children, she searched to find a program that brought children to the forefront while also providing clear boundaries for mutual respect; a program where children would be seen and heard and where adults would see with new eyes and listen for what was unsaid.   When she realized what she was looking for didn’t exist, she founded Homeschool Garden, a now two-decade-old early childhood development center in Los Angeles.

And that's accounting.  He and a passionate group of revolutionaries solved the problem. In the process, Peter saw that anyone and everyone can be accounting literate, and therefore can understand personal finance and business finance, and entrepreneurship much better.

Chock full of insight!

As a retiree, Gen Xer wife and mom, I had not expected to be homeschooling my two Gen Z daughters. But it’s going on three years and I feel like Deputy Barney Fife at times—bumbling in my efforts to provide my kiddos a fulfilling home education. What has helped is to listen in on podcasts such as A+ Parents. The insight has been exceptionally helpful as it comes from actual homeschool students, their parents, and those in education. Hearing teens speak genuinely and candidly about their experiences as a homeschooler has enlightened certain approaches I use with my students. Likewise, I’ve received beneficial guidance on concerns related to secondary education and graduation. Thank you Mr. DiNoia and your team for creating an invaluable platform for parents such as myself. I may never become completely comfortable as I facilitate my kiddos home education, but your podcast has provided much needed support to encourage me to stay the course.
