I’m very excited about two new classes that I’m offering for 6th to 9th graders in 2019-2020. All my classes are held at home in downtown Waxhaw near the Waxhaw library. Level 1 (6th-7th) classes will be held Tuesdays. Level II (8th-9th) class will be on Thursdays. 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. Financial information is here. Click here to see a full course description.
Global Humanities is a 1.5-1.75** credit course held 1.5/1.75 hrs/wk. This humanities class covers world geography, history, literature, religions, and culture in six 5- week geographically organized unit studies, excluding North America. Financial information is here. Click here to see a full course description.
Writing and Humanities combined are 2-2.5*** credits held approximately 3 hours per week. A significant discount is given for students taking both courses. Check it out on the Financial Information page.
Single Unit Option is a chance to take 5 weeks of either course with no commitment. If space in the class permits, you may choose to just participate for one unit, or try out the class for 5 weeks without commitment.
Here is the sample outline 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, Level I courses are sufficient for a full Language Arts, Literature, and Social Studies credit for middle school. Level II courses are sufficient for a full high school History and English credit.
