Get the help you need to be an amazing teacher for your child

Homeschooling your child is one of the most important jobs you can take on. And we get it—it's a big one!

We're here to give you all the support you need to be the best teacher you can for your child. Think of us as your "homeschool coach!"

We give you tons of strategies for teaching and help you make great curriculum choices to make learning fun for your child.

We can also act as an "adjunct classroom" for your family, taking over some of the teaching for you with private or small-group classes in any subject.

And of course, we're always here to answer your questions whenever you need extra support.

Meet Our Homeschool Team 

Meet Miss Jana: Director & Teacher

I am so excited to be introducing myself to this community! I wanted to be a teacher starting in 4th grade when an educator made me feel like I was her most favorite student. I realised that all her students felt that way and I grew up wanting to do that I did! I received my Multiple Subject Credential in 2000, along with my Masters in Education. I began teaching right away in the Solana Beach School District K-3. When we moved to Northern CA, I began teaching in the MDUSD at Monte Gardens Elementary in 2nd grade, I just love the primary grades! Since 2004, I have been raising our three children, tutoring, volunteering in the classroom, and now homeschooling. With my 8th grader headed back to the classroom, my 6th grader homeschooling, becoming more independent, and my profound dyslexic 3rd grader headed to a private school for young dyslexics, it all came together for me to join with Miss Lainie here at Lainie’s Learning Lane and head up the Homeschool side of her business. My goal is to continue to bring joy to young students while they are actively engaged in their school time and learning. Let’s do it!!

Grades 1-12: Spanish * 1 - 6 all subjects                                                                      Grades1 - 8 all subjects  

Miss Ilene - All subjects 1st - 8th grade

I have always loved to explore new cultures and exotic locations around the globe. My love for travel has led me to follow a degree in Sociology from San Francisco State University.  Shortly afterwards, I received my teaching credential and my Masters in Education.  My first teaching position was working with children with special needs in the Full Inclusion Program in Livermore, CA.  It has driven me to always be reflective and try new techniques to help reach students struggling in their studies.   I have been blessed to be able to homeschool my daughter for the last two years. It has been a great experience to be a part of a community so dedicated, caring, and supportive to finding and sharing resources that are flexible and tailored to the needs of the child.  
I am new to Walnut Creek and I am excited to be a part of Core Academy because I believe that teaching the whole child is the best way for a child to learn.  My goal is for children to be life long learners and become confident in their ability to express themselves.  

Miss Ayanna -  Spanish and 1- 5th grade all subjects

My name is Ayanna Green, and I recently graduated from Howard University with a BA in Spanish and a minor in psychology. I have had a passion for Spanish since my very first Spanish class when I was six years old. Since then, my love for not only the language, but the various cultures within the Latin American community has led me on an adventurous journey. I have had the incredible opportunity to visit countries like Mexico, Argentina, Uruguay, and the Dominican Republic. My six weeks spent in Buenos Aires, Argentina during a summer Spanish & Counseling program in 2015 not only exposed me to new accents, words, sounds, and people groups, but also the beauty of travel. Each Spanish course I’ve enrolled in, each teacher I’ve encountered, and every Spanish-speaking country I have traveled to have shaped me into the Spanish- and adventure-loving teacher I am today. I hope to bring this passion into the lives of the students I tutor and instead of seeing grammar and vocabulary as a road block, I hope they view it as an opportunity to learn and have fun while doing so.
