Flexibility, education tailored to strengths and interests, amazing family relationships – these are some of the reasons Chenning loves homeschooling.

Chenning Peng, a long-time resident of the San Gabriel Valley, is a homeschool mother of four.  She is also an adoptive parent.  Having been helped so much by friends and family through her own experiences of parenting, adoption, and homeschooling, Chenning loves to support and encourage others on their journey.

For as long as Chenning can remember, she has loved reading and writing.  She still considers middle grade and young adult fiction as her favorite genres.  One of her favorite things to do is to matchmake people, especially young people, with great books.  

Chenning received a B.A. in English Literature from UC Berkeley.  Her focus was British literature with an emphasis on Shakespeare.  From there, she went on to receive her California English single subject and multi subject teaching credentials from Point Loma Nazarene University.  Pre-kids, she taught four years in the Alhambra School District.  She has loved every minute of homeschooling her own four children through elementary and middle school.  

  Chenning homeschooled with the Classical Conversations homeschool community for a decade, teaching English grammar and IEW history-based writing lessons to upper elementary students in small classes.  The last few years, she has taught persuasive essay writing using the Lost Tools of Writing curriculum to middle school students both online and in person.  Chenning has taken training courses at the Institute for Excellence in Writing and the Circe Institute.  She loves reading her students’ writing and considers it a great honor to do so!
