Heather lives in Wilmington, NC with her husband and three sons.  She was raised in a military home so she grew up living in many different places up and down the east coast and settled in Wilmington beginning in high school.   She wanted to be a teacher from the time she was very small and enjoys finding creative ways to help kids understand difficult concepts (especially in math) and loves to watch the lightbulb come on when students understand concepts they have struggled with.

She attended NC State and received her BS in Mathematics and Mathematics Education and taught public school for 7 years until her oldest son was born.  During that time, she received her National Board Certification and served as a mentor for beginning teachers.  She taught all levels of students in middle and high school as well as working as a technology integration specialist for the county.  She currently teaches online math for the NC Virtual Public School.

Heather is also currently homeschooling her three sons (elementary, middle and high school) – each having different learning styles, strengths and needs.  Through working with her sons at home, she has come to realize that education isn’t just about “doing” school but is a way of life and an atmosphere we can create in our home to give children a love and hunger for learning.  She enjoys tutoring and teaching small math classes as well as participating in a variety of other homeschool activities with her boys.

She organizes a homeschool coop at her church and enjoys doing service activities with her family including Special Olympics, Salvation Army, and the NICU at the hospital.

Heather believes that God created each of our children unique and special in their own ways.  She would be honored to help your family discover your child’s strengths and set a path for success for each student based on who God created them to be.

Heather Ertzberger tested my 12yr old son whom has an academic disability on yesterday 3/11. I started homeschooling because my child needed more one on one. I really appreciated the opportunity to meet with her. She was very helpful in giving me information, advice and ideas that will help me help him achieve. I had a positive spirit after talking with her. I am looking forward to incorporating the materials she gave me into his lessons. Thanks So Much!!

I used Heather’s services for the Woodcock Johnson test for my special needs son and could not be more pleased! She was friendly, professional, helpful and made him as comfortable as possible through the process. The testing went great and she went above and beyond, taking the time to answer my many questions, and giving us resources and suggestions for fun ways to strengthen and focus on areas that needed it. I would definitely use her again and highly recommend her!!

I signed my son up to for the Woodcock-Johnson testing with Heather Ertzberger and we couldn’t have been more pleased with the outcome. Not only was Mrs. Heather extremely polite but she made my son feel comfortable and at ease. Her patience and care for what she does makes the testing experience stress free! You can trust Heather. She is responsible and professional. She even gives a full report on every detail possible to help your child prosper academically. Not to mention she is fast and accurate. Thanks Heather. You deserve all the praise for what you do!
