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 Catholic students the best opportunity for academic success. Families can be fully integrated into the life of their local parishes, can be immersed in the Catholic faith throughout the day, can establish a schedule that benefits all members of the family and can pursue study goals not available at local schools.
I have spent almost 20 years developing my teaching resources and you’ll see that what’s available is amazing. The cost is $75 per hour of live instruction with group discounts available. I am able to teach all subjects and provide all necessary study materials. 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

Help for Schools
If you are a Catholic school administrator (or thinking about starting a school), I can help you fix the problems that will cause your school to struggle and, eventually, fail. It’s one thing to call your school “Classical” or “Catholic”, but it’s a very different thing to actually be a Classical and Catholic school. The books and subjects are not the only problem with modern education.
I’d like to help you understand what the sources are of the problems your school faces–and eliminate them. I’d like to help you replace disconnected and expensive study materials with a complete, efficient curriculum that costs a fraction of what you’re paying. I’d like to help you manage your school without the need to pay for unnecessary staff members. I’d like to provide you with access to powerful administrative and record-keeping systems that your school probably cannot afford. I’d like to provide expert 24/7 support for your students that doesn’t depend on your availability. I’d like to help you manage your school with no financial risk, paying for services as you use them, after collecting tuiton.
If you’re willing to look, honestly, at the problems in modern schools and how your school can be free from them, I’d love to talk with you.
