Math for TJED

I read somewhere before on one of your posts (I can't remember where or when) about how with the exception of Math we want to "inspire and not require".  I totally understand the "inspire not require" with pretty much any subject but what are your ideas on how to inspire or implement math so that the children do not get so "behind"?  I have read a lot of great things about Math u see and want to get it to help our younger children with Math.  I know it is pretty costly though so I was wondering…See More

A Message from Rachel DeMille

Friends, You are probably well aware that one of the greatest needs among those doing TJEd, whether they are seasoned or new, is to find local support. I don't know how many times a week I get a request for help from someone who's needing a friend, a mentor, or just someone to share with. By far the most active place for TJEders to connect is on TJEd MUSE. There are many local groups that are doing a fantastic job of meeting people's needs, it's true; but for the newbie searching for…See More

Are We Having Fun Yet?

 So far I feel like we have packed a lot into our summer: planting a garden, going to TJED Land, doing the shows for the summer reading program at the library, playing at grandma's house, playing with cousins, going swimming, going to parks, and keeping up with the housework and yardwork. For my own growth I am doing the Abigail…See More

Welcome to TJED Library!

The traditional school year is over! It might be time to take a break from formal education, but it's never time to stop learning. Perhaps it's time to adopt the philosophy of A Thomas Jefferson Education into your family. to prepare for the new formal school year in the fall. This philosphy can work whether you do public school, homeschool, private or charter.

The beauty of the Thomas Jefferson Education philosophy is that it works! (For the most part.) It produces beautiful delicious fruit in the form of children and adults who know the classics and lead others towards liberty. It can incorporate all the good you are already familiar with in the form of unschooling, classical homeschooling, Montessori, Waldorf, natural seasons of learning, and agency-based education.

A Thomas Jefferson Education: Teaching a Generation of Leaders for the Twenty-first Century

Do you want objective, third-party reviews of the classes, products, and services available in the TJED community so that you can decide whether or not to use them for your own or your children's education?


Have you been inspired by a TJED event and want to let others know of its greatness? Have you been disappointed by a different one and want to warn about it?


Are you excited about a book you've read for your own education and want to share an epiphany you've gained?

Have you read a great picture book or chapter book to your children and want to tell others about it?

Do you have notes from a seminar or class based on TJED that you want to freely share?

You've come to the right place! This website is a place to share and review books, classes, schools, products, and services marketed to the TJED community. (see to learn what TJED means.)



This site is owned independently of any founders, graduates, faculty or board members of George Wythe College or any family members of the aforementioned. We have no financial ties whatsoever with George Wythe College, Youth for Freedom, American Youth Leadership Institute, TJED Marketplace, Homefires, Leadership Education Mentoring Institute, or TJED Online. Please feel free to share your candid reviews (both positive and negative) but maintain civility. Please be respectful of various religious and educational philosophies. The mission of TJED Library is to increase your leadership education by having a place to review the products and services offered by the TJED community. The creators and leaders involved with these products and services will hopefully have a greater sense of accountability and greater desire to serve by improving their offerings.

We hope you will learn something and share something. Please feel free to start discussions. You are also welcome to post notes from any TJED seminars or classes you've taken by uploading pdf files. Contact info@tjedlibrary.com if you have any questions or need help in sharing your files.
