Writing & Research help

Hello Homeschooling Families,

I hope your school year is off to a new start. I am excited to hear all the adventures of your year.  I have stepped down from full-time employment at BU allowing me to offer more opportunities for homeschooled families.

  1. I am available for speaking engagements for co-ops, workshops, conferences, and banquets. A love offering to at least cover my travel is appreciated. (Perhaps the families in your area would appreciate a Homeschooling High School Workshop??? Have them pick a location and a few dates and contact me to see when I am available.)
  2. For those with internet access, I am offering a new online service through my new website called HIS Homeschool Center. This service is targeted toward homeschooling high school students writing research papers, but is not limited to that group.  Students can:
  3. Submit a paper to me for a 1-time proofread/edit
  4. Submit the paper 3 different times for a 3-draft check
  5. Enroll in an online course guiding them through how to write a research paper. The course offers 2 options.
  6.  Independent study using PowerPoints I provide with audio files embedded for teaching and a 3-draft check of the paper.
  7. Weekly online course, using the same PPTs, but with weekly communication and support from me.

I am still working out the details on the writing services. Interested families can get more information on my new website (HIS stands for Homeschool Inspirational Support).  Please visit the site and share it with your friends. For those of you on Facebook, also check out HIS Homeschool Center, and please click LIKE. Also invite your FB friends to view the page.

Have an amazing year!

In Christ,

STEM opportunity

My name is Mary Ross and I am the Women’s Center Coordinator at Thaddeus Stevens College. We are working to host several STEM events for young women along with bringing a parent to our college. And so we are looking for 2-3 groups to collaborate with, to make this happen during Women’s History Month in March of 2016. If this is something that might interest your school please let us know and we will be glad to meet with a representative from your school so we can tailor the program to fit your needs. Please note we do have monies available for this event, so our goal is to have a minimal fee or to have a free event…depending on your needs. Thank you so much for your time, we look forward to hearing from you.

I am desperately needing help. We have lowered the age requirement to 16 years old in hope that maybe some of the homeschoolers in your group would be able to come serve with us. We are still in need of 15 people, so if there is any way possible that you could share this need with your community I would greatly appreciate it!!

Worthy Cause & Opportunity for your consideration

Happy Holidays!

We have not one, but FOUR fundraising opportunities coming up on Thursday, December 10 that we wanted to share with you so you could consider participating and also sharing with your friends.

Perfect timing to give yourself at least one night free from cooking during this crazy holiday season. And maybe even throw in a little holiday shopping in the quaint town of Emmaus.

1. Switchback Pizza Co. (525 Jubilee St., Emmaus), a NEW Emmaus business, has offered to donate 15% of all sales between 11:30am and 8pm. They serve scrumptious wood-fired gourmet (organic!) pizza, along with lots of tasty sides and drinks. Just mention the Fresh Air Fund when ordering! Join our Facebook event if you’re a Facebook user and share it with your FB friends!

2. Sugar So Sweet Cupcakes (338 Main St., Emmaus) While you’re in town, head over to Sugar So Sweet Cupcakes which is on the triangle about two blocks to the east of Switchback Pizza. Hours are 12-5 on Dec. 10. Mention the Fresh Air Fund and we will receive 15% of all cupcake and sweets sales! Perfect way to satisfy your sweets craving (and without a DOUBT the BEST cupcakes around!).

3. Let’s Play Books (379 Main St., Emmaus) Just across the street from Sugar So Sweet (that rhymed!) you’ll find the cutest book store around. My friend Kirsten is the owner and is a huge supporter of our program. She is happy to donate 15% of the sales of her books and other great products. Just mention that you’re with the Fresh Air Fund and she’ll keep a tally! She is open 10am – 7pm that day.
4. Texas Roadhouse (4463 Southmont Way, Easton, PA 18045) For those of you who are closer to Easton or those just looking for a good steak, we’d love for you to join Alice Hornbake, our Chairperson for Northampton, and her family at Texas Roadhouse between 3pm and 10pm. They’ll donate 10% of your food purchases! Please bring the attached flyer with you.
All fundraised money will directly benefit the Lehigh Valley Fresh Air Fund group to support fun summer activities, outreach and so much more.

Thank you for your continued support of our program,

Science for FREE

Just a quick reminder that you’re invited to my free LIVE online class today on Astronomy, Black Holes, and Spaceflight!


There is still room available for your kids.  Just go to this link to register free of charge:


You can register here for free



Your kids will actually learn to make energy plasma (safely) during the class! 


This is a form of energy that can power spaceships across millions of miles.


The class begins today at 12:00 Noon (Pacific) and I’ll be teaching the class for just over an hour, including step-by-step instructions for creating energy plasma!


It’s kind of like going to a really cool planetarium show, but you do it at home!


I’ll also take questions from your kids.  I’m actually an astronomer and president of the Central Coast Astronomical Society, so I’m glad to share all I’ve learned with you.


I think this will really HELP YOUR KIDS, by the way.


It’s specifically geared for helping kids who are either really eager to learn science, as well as those who feel it’s a real chore.


Here’s what you’ll get from this free class:

1.       Your kids will be deeply engaged in a totally fun AND educational hands-on learning activity.


2.       By the end of it, they will be excited not only about what they just learned, but they will be eager to learn more (including the academic parts).


3.       They will expand their appreciation for the wondrous world around us.


4.       I’ll do the teaching, so you can just sit back and watch (or, join in if you like).


If any of these things appeal to you, then you’ll love this class.


You can register for this free class right now at:


I’ve found that astronomy is naturally exciting for kids.  It’s also a place where they can apply lots of what they already know.  Things like math, chemistry, physics and history.  (Many of the greatest figures in history were also astronomers in their time.)


By the way, this class is taught from a non-evolution, non-creation perspective so everyone can participate.


I promise, I’ll take good care of you kids in class today and they’ll learn things they’ll be talking about for days!


I’m looking forward to connecting with you in class today.





P.S. I’ll also be giving away hundreds of dollars’ worth of free science kits and programs during the class today :-) Register here:
