Teaching Record

I have enjoyed personally teaching more than 165 homeschooled teenagers in twelve different courses since 2002.[1] These classes have been open at low cost to everyone, including persons with learning disabilities. My courses covered the material for a full-year public school course in just one semester, meeting only one day a week.

When I taught a one-semester course to my students in Economics, I gave a final exam that imitated the grading scale of the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) exam. A substantial percentage of my students, even though they were at the high school and even the 8th grade levels, earned passing marks on the college level scale. Every one of my students who took the CLEP exam based on my course passed it to earn college credit.

The SAT II U.S. History course is the College Board exam for students who excel in this subject. A score above 600 usually places the student in about the upper 50% of college-bound high school students who have done particularly well in U.S. History.

After completing my U.S. History course, which met at only a tiny fraction of the time and cost as public school history courses, ten of my students for that course scored over 600 on the SAT II U.S. History exam. One of my students attained a perfect score of 800.

My homeschooled students have typically been admitted to their first choices in colleges, including the following:

Abilene Christian University
