I teach my pupils a classical education curriculum, based on the educational standards of Western Civilization until the mid 20th century or so.
I specialize in (English only) grammar, arithmetic, geometry, natural sciences and astronomy, music and art, politics, and philosophy. Almost every lesson also includes a section on geography (and cartography) and history to give context to the topics studied. Be prepared to study writings and cultures of Western Civilization: from Greco-Roman Hellenism to Catholic scholasticism, to the Renaissance and Anglo-American Enlightenment. Looking backwards at the transitions between these eras, what might come next?
I am able to scale these lessons for any age group. One is never too young to learn the basics nor too old to contemplate the Masters. As I do not teach any languages, my courses will be 100% English or English translations.
While parts of the Bible will be read and discussed, my lessons are largely secular, unbiased, and academic in nature. These are not Sunday School lessons!
I absolutely love that I get to lift up a generation that has inherited a fallen society. I put the academics back into academia. You won't find the Judeo-Marxist critiques and deconstruction of the Occident with my lessons, nor will you need to purchase $400 textbooks. The readings from my lessons, and the wisdom they impart, are all freely available online to the entire world. I will provide all of the reading material for free in a format readable on any computer, smartphone, or e-book reader. I will even attempt to find an audiobook for free if requested.
New students: I discuss the needs of new students and plan a customized lesson based on their needs and/or areas of interest. Please allow two weeks of planning time for a new student's first few lessons. Education is not "one size fits a classroom of 30."
Modest pricing: $100 for a one hour bi-weekly lesson. I give my pupils a full two weeks to read the materials and write about the lesson's readings. I meet all students at their nearest public library or we can conduct lessons online.
I've worked with other students through school programs ranging from NHS tutoring to Youth Teaching Youth. I've taught kindergarten through 6th grade in class room setting and worked one on one with everything from reading comprehension to DNA replication.
