Online courses are taught through correspondence. We provide the curriculum, the lessons, the grading and the one on one guidance, and your student provides the creativity!
Some home schooling educators and tutors lack experience or confidence in a particular subject. Some just need a break. Whatever your needs, we can help!
All courses are tailored to fit the age and ability level of your student.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the structure of the courses?
Courses are taught online. Lessons are sent via e-mail, and students complete the assignments at home. For help or questions, students can either e-mail, chat or correspond by telephone with the instructor. When the assignment is complete, it is emailed back to the instructor. The assignment will be graded within 48 hours and returned to the student. A copy of the grade will be emailed to the parent or educator of the student.
How do I contact you?
I can be emailed at TumbleweedCrossing@yahoo.com Another good way to contact me is through ICQ. With this online device, we can chat and instant message online. My ICQ number is 17531754. A free download of ICQ is available from their homepage. This resource is helpful, but not required. Other chat rooms are available if so needed. I am also available by phone at 334-290-0065.
Are there any course requirements?
All courses have some basic requirements. A computer with internet connection is obviously required. Sometimes, arts and craft supplies will be needed to complete activities, though they usually consist of supplies you already have (crayons, markers, construction paper, etc). It is helpful, but not required, to have a Print/Graphics program such as PrintMaster or PrintShop. And last, but not least, the most important requirement of all: The will to learn and have fun! Big Smiles Expected!!! :)
