A bright light for your students!
G loves having you as a teacher and loves your classes. A few weeks ago, we were reflecting on our altered life since the pandemic began. G volunteered that, during this difficult time, your classes have been a positive addition to her life.
Thank you for being a bright light for your students!
Favorite Class Ever!!!
My daughter took Exploring American History through the American Girls and absolutely loved it!! It was her favorite class this fall and she can’t wait for the winter and spring sessions. The girls get to read the books, which is really fun material, and complete some incredibly original and creative projects! They do this all while learning key events that took place in our nation’s history. Ms. Eva is so positive and engaging with the girls. They absorb so much information because of the fascinating way in which the class is taught. All the assignments are displayed in an organized and clear format. I would highly recommend this class to anyone who loves the American Girl dolls or is curious to learn their stories. This class really kicked off our Monday morning in such a happy way!
A Creative and Highly Interactive Introduction to American History
Vivienne adores this course! Eva Goldstein – Meola excels at using the American Girls books to offer a creative and highly interactive introduction to American history. The considerable depth of the material is made relatable by tying it to the individual experiences of the American Girls. Assignments are well thought out, manageable, and follow closely what has been discussed in class.
American Girl History has been a fantastic addition to our homeschooling this year! I am a planner and love how well organized, thought out, and easy to understand all of the weekly modules/assignments/instructions are. All of the modules were available ahead of time, so I could print, plan, and prepare everything for her in advance. It made my job as a working, homeschool mom much easier! We have studied a fair amount of history over the years, but this is the first time I have noticed Lilah really relating to the content and enjoying what she is learning! Overall though, her favorite part of the class has been Miss. Eva! She is a wonderful teacher and is able to keep her engaged throughout the entire class.
This class was PHENOMENAL!
In 2018 – 2019, my daughter took all three sessions of her Exploring American History with the American Girls class. The class was phenomenal! Ms. Eva is an extremely talented as a teacher. She understands the blend of teaching and making every child feel important and appreciated! This alone is worth its weight in gold; however, there is more! Eva understands the importance of blending all content areas into one class. Exploring American History with the American Girls was not only about reading the American Girl books – it was about geography, history and writing. My daughter walked away with a wealth of information!
I encourage all homeschooling parents to take a look at what Eva is offering as she is the type of instructor you will want your children to have!
