Mr. Gelston’s One Room Schoolhouse has found its place in the world of gifted homeschool education by offering private lessons that are based on quality pedagogy and respect for the social-emotional needs of gifted children and families. Within this context, we are expanding with a few additional offerings.

The goal of this program is to support gifted families in organizing their worlds and their development of executive functioning skills.

In time, Mr. Gelston will add additional, but limited, services that are focused on the individualized needs of gifted homeschoolers.
Each one of these programs features a strong leader who has the breadth of knowledge and understanding to flow with the dynamics needs presented by the gifted community. Each professional starts from a position of love and kindness, a joyful attitude, and a deep respect for the needs of gifted people.Barry Gelston, M.Ed.
