WAY BEYOND ENGLISH: ONLINE + ACADEMIC TRIPS

Like horses? Believe they should be treated with compassion? 

We are planning a five day trip to visit the Centaurus Foundation’s rescued horses sanctuary.  ​They have an Open House on September 25.  We are invited to join them for a super fun day. General plan, we meet online, learn about animal rights and laws to protect animals, become knowledgeable about veterinarian care, and then help the foundation with their Ppen House.   We make notes and take pictures & videos during the trip. We come back with our notes and pictures to create an awesome documentation of our achievements.

Your English and academic coach - Benjamin Burg

I am an entrepreneur at heart. Over 10 years of teaching, I designed every single lesson plan, never using a textbook.

 I love nature and history.  When I teach, I use critical thinking.  There is no such thing as memorization.  Perhaps because I believe the earth is alive, I am constantly searching for the logical connection. This leads me to understand  patterns that create simple foundations to develop more complex comprehension.

 

I have been blessed with amazing teachers my whole life.  Kimberton Waldorf School and all the amazing teachers that gave me the core foundation of nearly all academic and artistic subjects. The University of Pennsylvania while surrounded by the highest standards, I embraced Penn's goal to learn and then share it with the community.

Investment to push the learning up!
