I don't understand the meaning of "engaged and engaging". Can anyone help me? Thank you.

Here's the quote:
I have been homeschooled before, by parents who were engaged and engaging, who made sure their kids had room to explore and grow. This
is not the case here. George’s mother is made of stern, unyielding material, and she also happens to be the slowest speaker I’ve ever heard.

    They were engaged (in the process/activity of homeschooling me) - They were interested in the task. They applied themselves to it.

    They were engaging - They were able to capture my attention and get me interested in learning.
