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 home-schooling offers many Catholic students the best opportunity for academic success, but only when there is formal instruction, assessment and discipline. 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 offer private instruction in each of the four subject areas of the classical liberal arts curriculum: Trivium, Quadrivium, Philosophy and Theology. We study through historical and authoritative texts, doing as much in the classical languages as students are able to. I provide students with transcripts, weekly task lists, full assessment, 24/7 support and a 1 hour weekly video meeting through which the student is led to mastery in his/her studies.
My availability can be viewed below. If you would like to add a student to my waiting list for available openings in the future, please contact me.
God bless you all,
