Private Classical Instruction
In 2008, after teaching Classics in private schools for nearly a decade, I founded the Classical Liberal Arts Academy (C.L.A.A.) with a mission “to research, restore, publish and teach the classical liberal arts curriculum”. I have been immersed in research and publishing since then, and have enjoyed great success, but in 2017, I am turning my full attention to the last part of that mission: teaching the classical liberal arts to Catholic students.
I believe that, with the help of a competent instructor, home-schooling offers many Catholic students the best opportunity for academic success. Families can be fully integrated into the life of their local parishes, can practice the Catholic faith without distraction, can establish a schedule that benefits all members of the family, and can pursue study goals not available at local schools. That’s not a criticism of local schools, public or private, which serve many different goals; just a fact about benefits available through home-schooling today.
I have spent almost 20 years developing my teaching resources and you’ll see that what’s available is pretty impressive. The cost of private instruction is $75 per hour of live instruction with group discounts available. I am able to teach all subjects and provide all necessary study materials to enrolled students. I meet with students at my office, in their homes (locally) or online (remotely) using the best online resources available today. During the week, I communicate with the students any time they need help with any part of their studies. I can manage all academic records, provide parents with transcripts and reference letters and whatever else is needed. Each week, I answer any questions the students (or parents) have, assess the students’ work and introduce the next week’s lesson content. We continue like this through each subject, integrating our knowledge of each subject into our Catholic lives and moving on to greater studies.
If you are interested in enrolling a student for private instruction, contact me so that we can discuss your needs and goals and what we can do to take care of them. My current availability can be seen below, but I encourage you to contact me regadless of how busy I appear because my schedule changes throughout the year.
God bless you all,
Classical Liberal Arts Academy
