Reach For The STARS! - fun academic instruction geared to age level.

Methodology

Online ASTRONOMY lessons, or lessons in your place of choice in the New York City metropolitan area designed by career planetarium director. Especially suitable for HOMESCHOOL instruction. Fun, hands-on, experiential, cleverly high-level academics with lots of cross-subject benefit and "take-home" activities.

Background

I've taught "Einstein For Everyone" classes in a University setting to middle school Gifted and Talented students, and Adult School programs for over ten years. I've also coached medal-winning "Astronomy" teams for State "Science Olympiad" competitions. Kids find themselves in SPACE!

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $10/h

Details

Ideally, I would like online lessons for small groups of HOMESCHOOL students, with rate to be negotiated.

In-home lessons in New Jersey and some NYC locations must include public transportation costs.

Excellent! We took many lessons with Michael for our 9 year old son. Michael is a very enthusiastic teacher, and keeps the child engaged throughout.
My son looks forward to his weekly class.

Michael's response

Lessons are progressing swimmingly as the British might say. Student is racking up the gold stars...payment is coming through...and in an imperfect world this SuperProf lesson is close to heaven.
