Want to know the BEST science curriculum?
The BEST science curriculum is the one that gets your student excited about learning science.
Science is a discipline of exploration and wonder. If your student is bored with science, it’s not the science that is boring: it’s the way it is presented.
If you’re looking for exciting, online science classes taught by a passionate teacher, look no further.
NEW! Summer Classes at True North Homeschool Academy
Avoid the summer-slump by registering your high school students for one or both of the online summer classes I’m offering through True North Homeschool Academy.
In my Math Skills for Chemistry class, students will review the math topics necessary to be successful in high school chemistry. Topics we will cover include: using a scientific calculator, understanding and working with exponents, expressing very large and very small numbers in scientific notation, rearranging algebraic formulas, understanding significant figures, and using dimensional analysis to convert between units. Students will attend a live, online class each week for 6 weeks to learn and review material. Then they are able to review the week’s concepts in graded assignments.

Genetics is by far one of students’ favorite topics to learn in high school biology. It just never seems like there’s enough time to explore the topic thoroughly. That’s why I’m offering this 6 week deep dive into genetics. In this class, students will learn about how genes are passed on from parent to offspring.
We will spend our time learning how to use Punnett Squares to estimate the outcomes of different genetic crosses. We will study Mendelian traits as well as non-Mendelian traits (including codominance, incomplete dominance, and sex-linked traits). We will explore many examples of real-life genetics that students may be familiar with such as the genetics of human blood types and red/green color-blindness and we will learn why calico cats are always female (an example of sex-linked codominance). Students will learn how to create and analyze genetic pedigrees. If time permits, we will also visit the topic of epistasis and epigenetics.
This high school level course can be taken either before or after a student has taken a full-year biology course. Learn more and register here: Genetics Summer Course
Online Classes at True North Homeschool Academy
I will be teaching three online high school classes at True North Homeschool Academy for the 2021/2022 school year: Biology (with optional honors track), Chemistry, and Anatomy and Physiology. I will meet with students once a week for a live virtual class, and students complete projects, labs, and homework assignments during the week. You can find more information about the classes and register here: High School Biology at True North Homeschool Academy, High School Chemistry at True North Homeschool Academy, High School Anatomy and Physiology at True North Homeschool Academy.
Online Classes at FundaFunda Academy
I will be teaching an online high school chemistry class at FundaFunda Academy for the 2020/2021 school year. Concepts will be taught using a variety of methods including lectures, videos, virtual and hands-on labs, interactive simulations, and textbooks. Students will learn how they use chemistry in everyday life and learn to see the science all around them. For more information or to register, click here.

We are excited to offer online virtual tutoring in math and science.
This service is not only for students. We are also happy to “Train the Teacher”, and help you brush up on any skills or topics in math and science so that you are better equipped to teach your students.
This year alone, I’ve tutored students in high school and college biology, high school, college, and Advanced Placement (AP) chemistry, and nursing school students.
