    Hello, Christina!
    I’m a violin teacher (specializing in the Suzuki method, but I teach other styles) who recently relocated to the Saginaw – North Fort Worth area. Do you charge to have a vendor listing on this resource page? Please let me know the next step!
    Thank you,
    Catherine

      Hi Daniel. Do you have a website link that will direct families to your program that you can share with me? I can post that link to my area classes if you will send it my way! Thanks ~ Christina

    Great list! Thank you very much! I just found this today and already we have a new plan for this evening in our house – seeing a production from the Center for Home Education… I am thrilled to find additional resources as we look forward to another year – first full year – of homeschooling!

    Bonjour! I am a certified French teacher who recently left a public school job because of safety concerns. I am wondering if anyone in the home-school community would be interested in French classes. I am certified in EC-12, and have experience with high school students. I am a Christian who spent several years home-schooling my own daughters. Merci!

    • admin September 27, 2017 at 9:43 am

      Hi there! I am currently a part of The Center for Home Education and we have teachers who offer Spanish and ASL, but not French. We work like a University model, where students (classes smaller than 10) come to a class once a week and go home with assignments. Perhaps that might be an option for you. You might reach out to the director there, Donna Jones, and perhaps you can set something up for a spring class. Otherwise, perhaps establishing a class at a library or your home and advertising in various Facebook groups might be another idea.
