Time & Location
About The Event
Assalaam alaikum wa rahmatullah sisters,
We wanted to take this opportunity and introduce this dynamic duo of mother and daughter to share their experiences as a homeschooling parent and a homeschooler youth. We have invited Sr. Syma to a few of our events to talk about this topic and on Saturday she will be joined by her daughter Kareena to shed light on her experience in persuing higher education.
There will be a Q&A session at the end of the session so come prepared with all your questions, concerns about how to prep for the college, university phase.
Sr. Syma Kamran:
Syma Kamran has a Bachelors degree from York University in Political Science. She’s been homeschooling since 2005 and has gone from early elementary years of homeschooling to high school completion. She is one of the original members of the TMH and tries to be an active participant in helping new homeschooling moms to begin homeschooling high school.
Her home education style included a combination of traditional textbooks, classical education, on-line computer courses, CD, DVD and video courses, cooperative homeschool classes, and simultaneous high school/university course enrolment through a private academy and University of Athabasca. Aside from the academics of homeschooling, as parents, it was important for Syma and her husband to use this opportunity as a way to build good character and entrepreneurial mindsets for their children.
Over the last six years, she has gone through the process of preparing her children to complete high school and to get acceptance into university. Two of her children are currently in university and one child has completed her Bachelor of Arts degree in Professional Writing.
Kareena was homeschooled from grade 5-12. She completed high school using individualized homeschooling curriculum, and did a few courses through Athabasca University. She then studied Professional Writing at York University, specializing in Publishing, and is currently doing contract work in Digital Marketing.
