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.

We highly recommend Heather for testing    This year was my first year homeschooling and I wasn’t sure how to proceed with the end of the year testing but Heather made it very easy.   She was easy to talk to  very prompt in getting back with me on dates and even sent me a reminder with all the details I needed for the day.   My daughter was very relaxed with her and after testing she went over everything and answered all my questions plus more.    We highly recommend her and will definitely use her in the future.   H.

It was a blessing to have you administer the Woodcock Johnson test for my boys! Our first year of homeschool was challenging to say the least but we are happy we decided to give it a try! I admire what public school teachers do on a daily basis more now knowing a glimpse of what they go through. When it comes to our experience, the 20-21 school year, we loved how homeschool gave us the option to willingly learn at our own pace while enjoying family time. Heather Ertzberger, you were so helpful in administering the test, explaining the results, and helping my boys feel comfortable the entire time. (They were so used to feeling pressured at EOG time) Thank you for your work and what you do for all the homeschool children and parents! Hopefully we will see you next year! Thank You!
