“Homeschooling with Wolsey Hall has been a very delightful experience! The courses are beautifully organized, from the amazing resources on Canvas to the very creative assignments. However, above all, I couldn’t be more thankful to my very encouraging and supportive Tutors and Student Progress Manager who was always very welcoming to each and every question I had. Wholeheartedly, I couldn’t have scored an A* in both Physics and Biology without your help. Thank you!”
