Hire Jennifer: Speaker Packet (2020)

Jennifer Cook-DeRosa, M.S.

Thank you for your invitation!  I’ve prepared this brief speaker packet to help you decide if I’m a good fit for your event.  If I can answer any of your questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me using the form at the bottom of this page.

Warmly, Jennifer


Jennifer Cook-DeRosa, M.S. is the founder and executive director of Homeschooling for College Credit. Homeschooling for College Credit is an online support community that is free to join and run entirely by volunteers.  Each year, her social organization helps thousands of homeschooling families learn how to inject college credit into their homeschool program.

Jennifer brings 25 years of experience as a college administrator, advisor, teacher, and homeschooling parent to Homeschooling for College Credit.

Jennifer’s inspirational teaching style encourages parents to reconsider the wisdom of popular college propaganda.  While others are distracting parents with the fear of their kids being able to get into college, Jennifer puts those fears to rest and helps parents see the real obstacles in front of them: getting kids out of college!

Through resourceful high school planning, Jennifer teaches parents how to use their time wisely, increase efficiency, bring the goalpost closer, and pay cash for college.

Jennifer and her husband have 4 sons, all homeschooled since Day 1. Their sons all began earning college credit in high school, and collectively her family has 10 degrees from 7 different colleges.

Jennifer’s full curriculum vitae is available upon request.
