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’m a former medical manager turned teacher who quit teaching to stay home with my own children. I now substitute teach. I found homeschooling my joy and passion. I have 6 girls – several of whom are adopted. I do portfolios for any county within WV via virtual, digital and in-person (in the following counties: Raleigh, Fayette, Nicholas, Braxton, Kanawha). I created a website for you to learn more about me. https://kristenjadkins.wixsite.com/kristenjadkins/
2017: “I am currently in my 11th year of homeschooling my children. Prior to having children, I taught in the public school system for more than three years. My training and experience focused on children with special needs ranging from non-verbal to gifted. I am certified in both special and regular education in West Virginia. I am excited for the opportunity to work with you and your family. I am experienced in working with parents in planning and implementing Individualized Education Programs (IEP’s) and am available to consult throughout the year as well as for portfolio reviews.
I am currently residing in the Morgantown/Grafton area.
In accordance with WV Law, portfolio reviews will be based on Math, Reading, Language Arts, Science, and Social Studies. If you do not live in the Morgantown/Grafton area, I am willing to work with you to assess your portfolio. Please contact me via phone or email with any questions or to make arrangements.

I’m pursuing my Ph.D. in Public Policy with a focus on education, which further enhances my understanding of the educational landscape and allows me to stay updated on the latest research and best practices. I strongly support all forms of homeschooling and firmly believe in parents’ rights to choose the best education for their children.
Every child has unique strengths and learning styles, and I’m committed to recognizing and celebrating their individuality. I understand homeschooling regulations and support parents’ values, rights, and choices. I’m passionate about empowering homeschooling families and providing meaningful evaluations that contribute to the growth and success of their children.

Certified Teacher in Regular and Special Education and also a Homeschool Mom, Morgantown, WV
As of 2019, I am currently in my 14th year of homeschooling my children. Before having my children, I taught in the public school system for nine years. I taught both regular and special education.
I have been doing portfolio reviews for homeschoolers for 14 years now.
In accordance with the WV law, I ask that parents provide their child’s/children’s school work in the subject areas of math, reading, language arts, science and social studies. If you have questions, please email or text me.
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.
