New Homeschool Co-op

We are beginning a “brand new” Homeschool Fellowship/ Co-op hosted by Trinity Baptist church in Lake Charles. Our goal is to offer enrichment classes for preschool through 12th grade students all over the lake area.  Because we are new we will need lots of teachers and volunteers to get things started.  Please let us know if you are interested in participating and/or would be willing to teach a class.  We hope to begin Monday, September 11th.  Time is short!

I’m Sam Salo, and I’m a tutor who grew up homeschooled. I now run an online tutoring studio that specializes in homeschool tutoring and mentoring. I’ve said hello in the past, and I wanted to contact you again and put forth my services to you and anyone else you might know that might take an interest. I invite conversation at the very least.
Sam Salo
My name is Sam Salo, and I run an online tutoring studio. I specialize in CLEP and college credit tests, video game design, and other subjects such as math and English. I also teach English as a Second Language.
I offer tutoring to both help and augment a student’s current classwork, and I also offer tutoring that can serve as a student’s class in a particular subject.  I am quite flexible in how I can approach a student’s situation. I invite prospective students and parents to dialogue with me and start conversations.
-CLEPs and college credit tests; topics include achieving a degree through testing, taking individual tests, the taking of tests (the art and “science” of how to approach them), and more
-ACT/SAT testing
-Core junior high and high school subjects, including mathematics, biology, chemistry, English, writing, and literature
-Graphic design and photography
-Video game design, including game theory, introductory programming, and introductory mobile game design
-One-on-one sessions
-Groups (classes)
-Supplemental tutoring and teaching for a student’s preexisting classes
-Teaching by invitation from a group or school
-If a student is using a curriculum for a subject, I will use that with my teaching. If a student needs a recommendation for learning materials, I can provide the learning materials and curriculums. I also provide recommendations of material.
-I use Skype (or another online whiteboard option upon a student’s request). Through webcams and screensharing, it is simple, fluid, and fun.
-My rates are $20-25/hour, depending on the subjects. I tutor both one-on-one sessions and group sessions, depending on the needs and requests of individual students and families.
