Jubilate Deo! I am happy to announce that over Thanksgiving weekend I had the opportunity to learn how I can save the original Petty School videos I had produced in 2008 and make them available again. All of the original Petty School lessons will be restored for Petty School Reading, Writing and Arithmetic courses. What Happened? In 2008, I produced three courses for pre-school aged children that introduced them to the ideas they would need to make a good start in the Classical Liberal Arts Academy. These courses were extremely popular, and were enjoyed by thousands of children. However, the … Continue

I have worked for over 20 years as a tutor, working with students after school … Continue
