The Online Classroom

Your Teachers

Our science teachers can cover a wide variety of science topics.  We are more than just "tutors"; we are competent, former ISBE-certificated teachers, and we have been reviewed and referred by other students, parents and school personnel. Our abilities and knowledge are therefore verifiable and we are extremely capable of helping you in the areas where you are having difficulties. We will work one-to-one, ensuring that each child achieves his or her academic goals. Science need no longer be the scary and difficult chore it often is claimed to be!

“… we have all learned so much from your class. Not just science. We’ve learned patience, respect, and most importantly, what a rhetorical question is. We all have a lot of respect for you, especially because of everything you have done for us. Think of us as the class that made it. If it weren’t for your patience, your tolerance, and all the times you gave and gave and we just took more, none of us would have made it to where we are today. Thank you so much!” From a 9th grade Physical Science class
