Teaching Record

I have enjoyed personally teaching more than 185 homeschooled teenagers in 13 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. Now taught on Conservapedia, student achievement increases even more here due to the "Hawthorne effect" (one's work improves when there is review by others).

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 often done charity work in the United States (such as helping at a local foundation for the blind and teaching at an inner city school in Newark, NJ). My students have also worked in impoverished areas of Mexico, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras and South Africa. Some homeschool students and families have done charitable and missionary work in undisclosed communist or Muslim nations. My students have typically been admitted to their first choices in colleges, including the following:
