This is an experimental new page geared toward teachers and homeschooling parents who are looking for curriculum ideas. Right now I’ll focus basically on outlining things I’ve taught and wanted to teach, particularly topics and readings I think help to lay a solid foundation. As time goes on, I’ll work on linking to more teaching resources and lesson plans.

Let me hasten to say that I am no curriculum guru! You, as the teacher or parent, should evaluate outside requirements (like district mandates) and what your student(s) need and make your own informed decisions. Also, please don’t think I would suggest you try to cover ALL of what I post for a particular course — I doubt most people could (or would want to) fit all of that into one year. Just have a look, see what you like. Hopefully it will inspire you to craft your own awesome curriculum!

Note: I offer tutoring services for ages 14-adult at a rate of $25/hour, both in person (for local clients) and via video chat. I can also consult with you to help design your curriculum. If you’re interested, please email me at and we’ll schedule a (free) chat.
