Having supported homeschool families in the Lansing, MI area for over twenty-five years as Teenworks, a local homeschool tutoring service, this online resource grew out of vision for families committed to educational excellence for their children. We recommend their services for struggling learners as well as their synchronous online classes across academic disciplines. Maintaining personal contact with their client base and meeting individual needs of struggling learners has become the hallmark of their reputation. Their commitment to teaching from a biblical worldview fits the faith paradigm of most homeschool families.
The Potter’s School
The Potter's School (or "TPS," as they are commonly known) is committed to helping families achieve academic excellence from a biblical worldview. TPS was the first on-line school, emphasizing dynamic interactive classes and timely effective individual feedback. In a confused market of distance learning options, they have stayed consistently in the front because they keep their focus on content, standards, and character, pursuing "excellence through grace" in all of these areas together.

Now this same approach is available to learners who need kinetic interaction with abstract concepts. We think you’ll enjoy this product.
