Instructor Profiles

At Open Tent Academy, we have strived to look for the best instructors in the world, setting no limits at what we can bring to you – the homeschooling family.   The individuals chosen to teach at Open Tent Academy are leaders in their field, individuals involved in current research with leading companies around the world as well as proven teachers.   We are constantly looking for new teachers if you know of anyone – please do not hesitate to contact, Eva Lynn Goldstein-Meola.

Please note that Open Tent Academy reserves the right to change instructors (using our current teachers) for classes based on class size and/or needs. Although this is an unlikely event, it might occur.
