Meet Lee Binz
Lee Binz is the founder of The HomeScholar, and her goal is to help you with your middle and high school children.
She teaches homeschool parents how to help their child get the credit they deserve when they are looking for a college, seeking employment, or entering the military after their high school years are over.
Besides the Total Transcript Solution, Mrs. Binz has other areas of expertise that she offers, such as:
- Comprehensive Record Solution
- College Launch Solution
- High School Solution
- Personalized support programs
- Parental helps
- Homescholar books
I have to be honest, I wasn’t going to do a transcript for Erika, because she isn’t planning on attending college, but the more I’ve learned from Mrs. Binz, the more I’m convinced that I need to reconsider.
Mrs. Binz has worked with many different parents and she has so many stories that prove, that all homeschooled students need to have a transcript. They also need to keep it for a LONG time.
With all the proof I needed, it was time for me to start my training with HomeScholar.
Let me tell you…..Mrs. Binz’s training is super educational, helpful and full of tips to give your child a transcript that you both will be proud of.
Her training is quite overwhelming, actually. I have not been able to get through everything that she offers in the last six weeks, it’s just too much. But, I will tell you what I’ve done and what lies ahead on my “Do This Transcript Journey”.
On my HomeScholar dashboard I quickly accessed The Total Transcript Solution. The first two things you get is a tour around the Total Transcript Solution dashboard, and then Mrs. Binz’s contact information.
Mrs. Binz makes it very easy to get in touch with her, just in case you would need any help or have any questions.
The next four steps teach and help you get your child’s transcript done. They are:
- The Nuts & Bolts of How to Make a Transcript
- Books for Book Learners
- The HomeScholar Transcript Template Collection
- One Personal Consultation to Review your Completed Transcript
HomeScholar's Transcript Training
In this first module of training are individual audio and visual workshops that have corresponding handouts that you should print out and make notes on. Some workshops even have course slides that you can follow along with.
Mrs. Binz teaches us all the basics about transcripts in each of these workshop topics.
- Making a Transcript
- Requirements for an Official Homeschool Transcript
- How to Create Class Titles
- How to Determine Credits
- How to Calculate Grades
- How to Calculate GPA
- Finalizing a Transcript
- Reasons to Make a Transcript
- Additional Resources
Each of these audio workshops are easy to hear and easy to understand. Mrs Binz is fun to listen to with her jokes and stories. She does a really good job of keeping your attention.
She includes so much helpful information of what to include, how to include it, and what NOT to do with preparing a transcript.
HomeScholar's Transcript Training in Book Format
The second step in The Total Transcript Solution is Mrs. Binz’s e-book.
This e-book is 109 pages long, and is filled with Mrs. Binz’s training that she covered before. If you need to take a ton of information in small, bite-size chunks, then this will be incredibly helpful for you.
HomeScholar's Transcript Template Collection
In this area of The HomeScholar’s training, there is a list of transcript templates that you can look at and choose from.
Ten different formatted samples are available for you to look at, and if you like one of those, you can download the blank template to use.
Along with these ten, are additional templates specifically designed for different student types.
For example, there is a one-page and also a two-page template specifically for students that excelled at athletics.
Then there are basic templates (one or two-page) that are laid out by subject and/or subject and year.
With this list to choose from you are sure to find at least one that will fit your needs.
So, now what do I have to do yet? I have to choose my template, fill it in, and then I get my personal phone call with Mrs. Binz, so she can look it over and give any extra tips that I may need.
The HomeScholar Doesn't Stop There!
Throughout these six weeks, Mrs. Binz has provided us with extra workshops.
These workshops are like a webinar, and last about an hour long. There’s usually a handout to print out and use during the teaching time.
Mrs. Binz continues to give great content, help, and advice to everyone that attends.
