Venus and Serena Williams are phenomenally successful tennis masters. Their homeschooling background enhances their exceptional professional expression. They are the progeny of their self taught father and coach, Richard Williams.

Lawrence Rudner PhD, led a landmark investigation into the benefits of homeschooling circa 1998-99. In his association with the University of Maryland, he surveyed more than 20000 participants in schooling networks throughout the United States. In this respected study, Rudner revealed the beneficial profile of the home-school genre. His research demonstrated high academic proficiencies of the home-schoolers. he found that the majority of the students showed eighty to ninety percent competencies in their studies at home.

Key to these academic outcomes is the one on one tutorial aspects to instruction. Adventures in Learning k-12 is a in home tutorial approach that includes these successful principles for home-schooling.

The 2007 Rand Corporation study conducted for the US Department of Education re-enforced the findings of the Rudner study. The one on one tutorial-instructional approach leads to higher academic proficiency. So the findings of the 1998 Rudner research are strengthened again in 2007 by the Rand Corporation research for the US Department of Education. Other high achievers like the Williams’ sister include politicians, like Franklin D Roosevelt. Scientists Booker T Washington and George Washington Carver were home schooled. Military leader Douglas MC Arthur also home schooled. Contemporary pop music stars such as the Jonas Brothers and Hansen also were home instructed. Add comedian Whoopi Goldberg to these ranks as well.

Interestingly, the outcomes of successful homeschooling transcends the achievement gaps characteristic of public education. So the results in the Rudner research showed high academic proficiency in all ethnic, racial and economic groupings. Hats off to Richard Williams, the sharecropper’s son, who taught his daughters the art and science of mastery tennis using his own home schooling approach to instruction.
