What people are saying about TJEd:

Rebecca Kochenderfer, Founder of Homeschool.com and author of Homeschooling for Success: How Parents Can Create a Superior Education for their Child and Homeschooling and Loving It!:

“I have read TJEd twice, and I LOVE it! Oliver DeMille voices the need for a generation of leaders to be thoughtfully trained in our homes today. I don’t know when I’ve seen another book that communicates with such clarity, purpose and vision the powerful potential of homeschool. I find myself nodding my head and marking passages that sound like something I might have said–and DeMille says it so well.

TJEd gives clarity and purpose to the decision to homeschool, and a template that can be applied by any family to achieve their goals. I refer to the book often to help me further my own studies, and highly recommend it to anyone interested in quality education. ”


Jeff Sandefer, co-founder and faculty member of top-rated graduate business school Acton MBA:


“Oliver’s book, A Thomas Jefferson Education, has not only helped my wife Laura and I create a better educational environment for our children, but has constantly reminded me that master teachers believe that each child who walks into their classroom is a genius, waiting to be discovered.  

“Our future rests on how we inspire the next generation of leaders to educate themselves – safe from the meddling of ‘assembly line’ schools.  It’s only through the efforts of educators like Oliver and Rachel DeMille that we can hope to safeguard our freedom and prosperity for the next two hundred years.”


Andrew Pudewa, author of the multi-award winning “Excellence in Writing” program:


“Like most homeschooling parents, I found it difficult not to fall into doing ‘conveyor-belt’ education at home, using grades, grade-level materials, and checklists. After several years of doing this, I had successfully helped one of my children go from Core phase into ‘Hate-of-Learning’ phase, where her main goal was to get the ‘schoolwork’ done, as quickly and with as little effort as possible, so she could have ‘her’ time back. It was awful.

“Now, having applied The Seven Keys for several years, my children are thriving; the older ones have been successful in Great Books programs in college! I am profoundly grateful to Oliver DeMille for opening this world of educational thinking to me.”
