Meet the Herzogs

Joyce Herzog is a gifted teacher and author of many educational products that simplify teaching for you and learning for your students. Joyce taught classrooms of learning disabled students in private and public schools for many years and has been working with homeschooling families for two decades.  She has addressed rapt  audiences of appreciative parents and teachers all across the United States and Canada.  Joyce continues to reach the world through her  writing, tutoring in her local area and long-distance email and telephone consultations. 


Joyce’s husband Tom is her “Ways and Means Committee.” His chief job is bragging about his wife! In his spare time, he keeps the tools of the trade upgraded and working and the wheels of the machinery oiled and running. You may have seen him in the back of a workshop cradling, playing with and otherwise entertaining babies who had been distracting their moms from listening to Joyce’s workshops. Always busy, always helpful and forever willing to go the extra mile to make things work – that is Tom Herzog.


Joyce’s products and counseling have blessed countless learners across this continent and around the world for more than two decades. Her unique philosophy to learning enables learners of all ages and abilities to progress. Homeschoolers have found that Joyce’s methods fit well with most other approaches, including the “real book” method, unschooling, relaxed homeschooling and the Charlotte Mason learning style. Her philosophy and materials also serve those with special needs.


Joyce Herzog’s products are designed to be used by those who care about a unique and appropriate education concentrating on each individual’s talents. We serve professional and parent educators. We promote an education suited to the needs of learners, their families and those who educate them. We have a reputation for serving homeschoolers, changing the mindset of parents and teachers and rescuing students who have been failing.
