Listen to a brief interview with Joe as he shares excerpts from sessions and discusses his heart for ministering to homeschooling parents and families.
Joe Tyler has worked in the information systems industry for thirty-two years and is the project manager for Apologia Educational Ministries. He and his wife Zan have been married for thirty-five years and have three children: Ty, 34; John, 31; and Elizabeth, 24. Ty and John were homeschooled from kindergarten through high school, have graduated from college, and are married to lovely Christian women. Ty is enjoying a successful medical-device sales career, and John is a defense attorney. Elizabeth is the producer of the evening news for the NBC affiliate in Jacksonville, Florida. The three children attended college on a variety of academic, leadership, athletic, and other scholarships.
When Joe and Zan began homeschooling in 1984, the State Superintendent of Education threatened Zan with jail. Since then Joe has been very involved in homeschooling, both through his own family and the homeschool community at large. In 1990, Joe was a founding board member of the South Carolina Association of Independent Home Schools (SCAIHS); he currently serves as the chairman of the SCAIHS board. Joe is also on the board for Excelsior Academy—a large, weekly, homeschooling co-op. Joe was a very involved homeschool dad during the course of the Tylers’ twenty-one years of homeschooling. He has served as a PCA elder since 1984 and has taught parenting and marriage Sunday School classes and Bible Studies. He enjoys speaking with Zan at homeschooling conferences. In the past years he has spoken in Japan and Hawaii and conventions throughout the U.S.

Leaving a Legacy—The Vision of the Homeschool Husband and Dad
A cell phone commercial features an NBA point guard trying to play basketball blindfolded. Because he can’t see the goal, he’s never sure if he’s scoring. Too often, men take on the tasks of husband, father, shepherd, principal, coach, and disciplinarian without the vision necessary to define and accomplish the goal. In this session, Joe Tyler helps define the goal and shares how to discover the divinely appointed means of achieving it. You may even learn the secret to making your wife deliriously happy, your home a quiet and peaceful kingdom, your children rich beyond measure, and your father-in-law in awe of your great accomplishments. Come join us in our discussion of what it really means to leave a legacy as a Christian husband and dad.
You Want to What??!! Confessions of a Reluctant Homeschool Dad
When Joe Tyler’s wife, Zan, recommended homeschooling in 1984, he thought she was crazy. In this session, Joe shares his experiences in his homeschool-dad journey from skeptic to raging fan. Moms will learn techniques for thriving in their homeschool classrooms with a reluctant principal, and Dads will be encouraged to jump in with both feet and enjoy the experience. WARNING: In this session, dads may become so enthusiastic that they may even become teachers!

    It’s not so much that I enjoy customizing our hooocsheml curriculum, so much that I am just not comfortable NOT customizing. From the beginning my kids have been ahead in some areas and more average in others (different areas for different kids), and there was no way I could buy every subject on a single grade level because up to half of it would be wrong. I take the time to customize each year for each kid because it saves me time and money in the long run.
