Illinois Home Education (IHE) is an ongoing service project. It was started by our family as a service to the homeschool community in the state of Illinois.
IHE offers several services to the community:
IHE provides information to those seeking to learn more about home education in the state of Illinois.
IHE provides website design and website hosting for Illinois home education groups. IHE will provide free space on its servers to local organizations in need of these services.
IHE also offers tutoring in basic computer skills, web design, local area networking and computer repairs. We do offer onsite servicing for those within a reasonable driving distance. Contact us for pricing on these services at services@IllinoisHomeEducation.org
The effort is a family affair. Karen (a.k.a. “Mom”) handles most of the web writing and much of the design. She has many years of experience as a writer, editor, web designer and computer tutoring. Karen has been a professional graphic designer and desktop publisher since 1997. Along with owning and operating KZH Design, she teaches computer arts courses and gives private computer lessons in the Chicagoland area.
