I was a stay at home physicist and homeschooling parent and now that my kids are grown, I teach physics and astronomy at the local community college. I attended a rural school from K-12 and was bored to tears. When I learned about homeschooling, I realized that I was homeschooled even though I attended public school since just about everything I learned was from reading books at home or helping with our family business, and just experiencing real life. I have a PhD in Physics and was a physics professor when my first child was born. My sons were homeschooled all the way through high school and one now has a BS in Physics and the other just starting a BM in Film Scoring.
For about 15 years I taught science classes in my home for small groups of homeschoolers and I shared what we did in these classes on this website. I hope these resources are useful for other homeschool families.

I teach homeschool science classes, too – my background is chemistry. I have a little boy who is very inerested in astronomy, so I look forward to reading about what worked well for you with The Universe at Your Fingertips.

I love the site! I’d like to put together some chemistry stuff specifically for homeschoolers, so if you could get in touch (firstname.lastname@example.org), I’d appreciate it!

That would be fantastic! There is a huge need for homeschool science materials, particularly hands on labs/activities.

I taught science for 13 years, and now I’m trying to produce some science materials for homeschoolers. So far, I’ve built a website devoted to astronomy education, and I just wrote a book on germs. But I’m having huge problems reaching the homeschool market. As misterrguch said: If you could get in touch (email@example.com) I’d appreciate it!
