I’m very excited about two new classes that I’m offering for 7th to 9th graders in 2019-2020. All my classes are held at home in downtown Waxhaw near the Waxhaw library. Classes will be held Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Click HERE to register.
Writing for Muggles is a 0.5-0.75* credit course held 1 hr/wk. This writing class uses students’ love of the Harry Potter series as a springboard for studying grammar, sentence composition, and literary essays. The cost for this course is $280 or 6 unit payments of $55. Click here to see a full course description.
Global Humanities is a 1.5-1.75** credit course held 2 hrs/wk. This humanities class covers world geography, history, literature, religions, and culture in 6- 5 week geographically organized unit studies, excluding North America. The cost for this course is $420 or 6 payments of $75. Click here to see a full course description.
Writing and Humanities combined are 2-2.5*** credits held 3 hours per week. Both courses combined are $650 or 6 payments of $120.
Here is the course calendar for the year.

Feel free to contact me with any specific questions.
*This course does not have an on grade level literature component, so that aspect will need supplementation–more for older students, less for younger students.
**This course does not have a language arts and composition component, so that aspect will need supplementation–more for older students, less for younger students.
***When combined, these two courses are sufficient for both a full English and a full History credit for high school, and more than two full middle grades credits.
