Advantages of Dr. Byers' Courses
I offer many advantages that other companies and instructors do not or cannot offer because my focus is not about making money or building a company and hiring others to do what I do!
My focus is to personally serve
your family's educational needs
with affordable, quality courses!
- YOUR CHILD CAN START ANY OF MY COURSES AT ANY TIME DURING THE YEAR:
Your child can begin courses at any time during the year for any of my existing courses. If you want to have your child start courses in the traditional Fall, Spring, or Summer semesters, you can. Custom-
made courses take time to create, but I will do my
best to meet your schedule needs.
If you need to wait to start a course due to your child's learning and/or activity schedule, we can begin courses on any week and month that works best for you!
- MULTIPLE SUBJECTS OFFERED IN ONE PLACE:
Students can earn the required credits in English, Social Sciences, and Natural Sciences without ever having to leave home!
- NUMEROUS COURSE OPTIONS IN EACH SUBJECT:
For each subject there are multiple courses from which to choose to meet your child's interests and needs.
I will also custom create courses just for your child's needs and interests, upon request, as long as I feel comfortable and competent with the subject matter.
- A QUALITY EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE:
You can rely on your child getting a quality education in each of my courses as I have what many other programs and teachers don't have-- teaching and learning expertise from advanced degrees in the field of education and many years of teaching students in class and online, as well as teaching experiences at every level from preschool to homeschool to grad school!
- NO SPECIFIC DAY OR TIME TO BE ONLINE:
Students don't have to be "online" at a specific day or time as I work with each student individually and asynchronously via email.

- DR. BYERS IS the ONLY DEVELOPER, TEACHER,& ADMINISTRATOR for HIS COURSES:
-I develop all of my courses and I teach all of my
homeschooling students and have been doing so for over 7 years!
-When you sign your child up for my courses, I am the one serving your family's educational needs.
-Your child's needs are important, so I work with you and your child directly and individually.
-I don't pass your child off to someone else to teach. I am your child's teacher!
-I don't pass your needs as a parent off to a staff
member. I serve your needs myself.
-I'm here for you whenever you need help.
-Anytime you have questions or need help, I'm the only one you need to contact.
-If you want to see how your child is doing, email me at any time. I also am happy to set up appointments for conversations by phone!
-If you want me to copy you on my emails to your child, just ask! I'm happy to help!
- FLEXIBLE SCHEDULING TO MEET YOUR NEEDS:
The courses and semesters are set around YOUR schedule, not mine. Need time off for school activities, sports, or just a vacation? Just tell me what you need and I'll arrange the schedule accordingly. Or, when something comes up, just let me know and I'll work around your needs.
- NO EXPENSIVE BOOKS OR MATERIALS TO PURCHASE:
I create all of my course materials and supplement them with authoritative online resources to help your child develop vital learning skills, including research, reading, writing, and critical thinking skills.
The only materials I do not provide are the books for the literature and Great Books courses and the DVDs for movie courses. Families can purchase these items on their own or they can borrow them from their local library, family, or friends!
- HIGHLY-AFFORDABLE COURSES
One-semester courses (15 weeks) earn students 1/2 credit and cost a total of $75.
Two-semester courses (30 weeks) earn students 1 credit and cost a total of $150.
When you stop to figure it out, each class costs just $5 per week for one-on-one teaching with a highly-educated professor with extensive experience in developing and teaching courses at all levels.
- NO EXTRA OR HIDDEN CHARGES EVER!
Why are my courses so affordable? I create and teach the courses myself. What I do, I do in part as a service to support the needs of homeschooling families everywhere.
