WV Portfolio Reviewers

Reviewers are listed in alphabetical order.

Disclaimer: The names on this list are for the convenience and help of homeschooling families looking for portfolio reviewers. CHEWV makes no claim to endorse, recommend, or check out each reviewer listed. Neither is this list exhaustive; it consists only of those reviewers who choose to list their names with us for dissemination. Therefore, use of this information is voluntary and reliance upon it should only be taken after independent review.

Note:  It can be prudent to choose a teacher who is familiar with the differences in home tutoring versus group teaching.  Many reviewers have either homeschooled their own children or been involved in the homeschooling community for a number of years.  Not only does that help them assess your child’s progress judiciously, but it allows them to provide you with helpful feedback and ideas.  If your child has special needs, you will find reviewers on this list with special education backgrounds.

I created a website for you to learn more about me. https://kristenjadkins.wixsite.com/kristenjadkins/

De Ann Mudrick

I have taught in public and Christian schools for 35 years. I have a Master's Degree + 45 in Education. I have been a portfolio reviewer in Virginia Beach for more than 10 years. I live in Salem WV, Harrison County. I charge $75 for a review. Each additional review for multiple children would be $50. I would like to administer the Peabody Assessment Test, as well. This is a quick and accurate assessment of grade equivalency. The results will only be shared with the parent. Sometimes, a child may perform at a certain level in classwork, but the actual grade equivalency score is quite different on a standardized test. I am willing to review in any of the surrounding counties and would consider it an honor to do so.

Serving homeschoolers primarily in the Eastern Panhandle of WV

I earned my degree at Shepherd University in Music Education and later completed my Masters in Elementary Education at WVU. I worked for Berkeley County Schools as an elementary music teacher for over 10 years before making the decision to stay home with my first daughter. Since then I have been blessed with over 25 children, most of whom have been foster children. I began homeschooling in 2005 when my oldest began kindergarten and presently teach three daughters.

I have been completing portfolio reviews for several years for WV homeschoolers and enjoy sharing the knowledge I've gleaned from fellow homeschoolers and passing it on to others. It's my goal to make your portfolio evaluation a positive, encouraging, enjoyable process.

Beth Wade

I have been evaluating in WV for 12 years. I am a home school mom and college instructor from Wood County. I will evaluate in any WV county.
