About Matt

Matt Barnes is a son, a spouse, a dad, an entrepreneur, and an active community member. Over the last 10-years, he has coached thousands of parents on how to grow their children into “self-directed learners for the 21st Century.”

Matt’s kids have been educated in public, private, hybrid, virtual, and homeschool structures over the last 13 years. One is a valedictorian in his local public school, another started attending college at 15, and the other is starting a business at 14.

His family routinely uses online, off-line, and experiential learning to build themselves into self-directed learners. The result is traditional academic success and readiness for the 21st-century.
