A Variety of Science Classes to Supplement Your Homeschool Program

We currently offer 5 fun science classes, all personally taught by Dr. Dan Korow. All classes include demonstrations by Dr. Dan and labs with lots of hands-on!

General Science

This begin­ning sci­ence class will give you the needed skills and back­ground to excel for the rest of your sci­ence edu­ca­tion. It pro­vides the proper foun­da­tion for not only a sci­ence edu­ca­tion, but a well-rounded edu­ca­tion period.

Beyond sci­ence, the class will help your stu­dent learn how to learn and remem­ber. They will have fun doing lots of hands on. They will learn some basic sci­ence his­tory; not enough to get bor­ing, but just enough so that the stu­dent will know who the sci­en­tific giants were and how we can learn from them. They will begin to learn how the human anatomy is won­der­fully and fear­fully made.

This is usually for a 7th or 8th grader.  We also have 9th graders in these classes, depending on their interest and background, espciciallly if they are new to science, homeschooling and Dr. Dan’s teaching. The class meets once per week for 2 hours.

Physical Science

Phys­i­cal sci­ence teaches stu­dents about the world around them and helps pre­pare stu­dents for physics courses later in their aca­d­e­mic career, or sim­ply how to be a bet­ter res­i­dent of planet earth. If your stu­dents likes to build and oper­ate things, this is the course for them. Best of all, there’s no dissection!

Although we do use a text-book, we are not lim­ited by one. Dr. Dan draws on many dif­fer­ent sources such as addi­tional texts and arti­cles, dia­grams, illus­tra­tions, sto­ries, media reports, cur­rent events, basi­cally any­thing that can add excite­ment to the mate­r­ial. It’s a tremen­dous learn­ing expe­ri­ence that can’t be dupli­cated in just work­ing through a text book alone.

This is usually for an 8th or 9th grader, but can be taken in 10th since it can be counted as a high school credit.  The class meets once per week for 2 hours and 15 minutes.

Biology

This is usually for the 9th, 10th or 11 grader depending on interests and background. This is a rigorous – but REALLY fun – way to learn alot of cool things about biology. Many of our prior students have taken this and CLEP-ed out of their college biology! Even if you don’t care for science -but have to have the credit-then consider Dr. Dan’s biology! He will help you remember all that “stuff”. You’ll excel in a group setting in this course!  The class meets once per week for 3 hours.

Chemistry

Our chem­istry course is a blast (don’t worry, we’re not talk­ing about real explosions).

What we mean is that, like all of Dr. Dan’s classes, this is a fun, hands-on class. See do and hear how things respond and inter­act. See how com­mon house­hold items can be used to make sci­ence fun. There’s a ton of doing in this class, much more than a typ­i­cal stu­dent would get in a home class­room setting.

Dr. Dan proves that your stu­dent really can can bal­ance equa­tions, it’s not that hard once you see Dr. Dan’s Chem­istry Roadmap©.

Some math is involved, but for those who are less inclined toward the insides of liv­ing things, there is no dissection!

Dr. Dan’s Chem­istry class can lay the ground­work for stu­dents who want to use the Col­lege Level Exam­i­na­tion Pro­gram to “CLEP” out of col­lege courses and get a jump on their higher level edu­ca­tional career.

Advanced Biology

This upper level class is suit­able for stu­dents who love biol­ogy and wish to progress beyond the basics. As with all of our classes the empha­sis is on fun and hands-on learning.

Although you will need to use a text-book, Dr. Dan is not lim­ited by one. Dr. Dan draws on many dif­fer­ent sources such as addi­tional texts and arti­cles, dia­grams, illus­tra­tions, sto­ries, media reports, cur­rent events, basi­cally any­thing that can add excite­ment to the mate­r­ial. It’s a tremen­dous learn­ing expe­ri­ence that can’t be dupli­cated in just work­ing through a text book alone!

Dr. Dan’s Advanced Biol­ogy class can lay the ground­work for stu­dents who want to use the Col­lege Level Exam­i­na­tion Pro­gram to “CLEP” out of col­lege courses and get a jump on their higher level edu­ca­tional career.
