Lee & Matt Binz
Mrs. & Mr. HomeScholar
Lee Binz and her husband Matt independently homeschooled their two boys for eight years, from elementary through high school graduation. Both boys earned four year, full-tuition scholarships. She is now a homeschool consultant working with parents across the country and overseas. Lee is not a certified teacher. She does not judge your homeschool or evaluate children. Instead, she comes alongside other parents to help.
Office Director & Partner Relations
Liz Binz is a Seattle Pacific University graduate who worked in corporate customer service jobs before settling into the HomeScholar family. Before becoming part of the HomeScholar family, she joined the Binz family by marrying Lee's oldest son Kevin. Thus the "Lee Binz, Liz Binz" confusion was born. :) Kevin and Liz have been married since 2010. Kevin is now pursuing his Masters Degree, and plans to get a PhD afterwards. Outside of her job, Liz's passions are music and travel.
Graphic Designer & Technical Support
Like Lee, Robin and her husband began homeschooling when their children were in elementary school. More recently, after living most of their lives as suburbanites, Robin and her family left city life behind and moved to a small farm in Colorado. They love county life and the challenge of learning how to manage for livestock and grow their own food.

"I head up a large homeschool group in North West Arkansas. Your work is so key to keeping the homeschooled child at home during such a formidable time as high school. It breaks my heart to see mamas spend so much time and effort schooling the early years only to put the children back in school right at the time where their understanding and commitment to our Lord is beginning to come together. So many times I've seen these sweet children get pulled into the "world thinking" and not have the tools to deal with the issues. I believe high school is the time where logic and worldview discussions can begin to come together in the mind of a young adult. You have already been a blessing to me, I cannot wait for the high school years. I feel like I know you already especially since I have two boys".
Thank you very much.
