Anderson Underwood has 5 years of experience teaching humanities and Bible classes at a classical Christian school in Oxford, Georgia. He has a B.A. in Intercultural Studies from Union University, which he credits primarily for teaching him “how” to learn as well as allowing him freedom to pursue a variety of disciplines and thus paving the way for classical teaching. In his teaching career, he has taught literature, writing, history, Bible, and rhetoric classes and held a key role in senior thesis advisement. He has experience tutoring grammar, writing, and research. His favorite epic is the Odyssey, he thinks the Romantic poets get a bad rap, and he is trying his best to learn to like coffee. Last year, he read all 33 of Agatha Christie’s “Hercule Poirot” novels. His wife is kind and his daughters are precious. email@example.com

Charity Jacobson is always ready for an adventure, whether it be a walk in the rain, taking a last-minute 2-day tour of Norway, or being taught by Ukrainian children to catch jellyfish without being stung. Her love for children influences much of her life as she enjoys teaching children from her community and often travels internationally to develop relationships with children who don’t have families of their own. At every encounter with children, Charity endeavors to see the world through the eyes of those children and to interact with them on a level that is easy for them to understand. Each child is uniquely gifted by God, and she enjoys nurturing them to be exactly who God has made them to be. She is currently pursuing an MA in biblical studies from the Master’s University. Teaching both adults and children is a pleasure for her. The greatest reward for her is when she sees her students master the material and turn around and teach it to someone else, or become so passionate about the subject that they begin to surpass her in knowledge. email@example.com

Tracey Beers earned a B.S. in Computer & Systems Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 1996 and an M.Ed. in Christian Education from Regent University in 2002. She spent six years serving our great country in the United States Air Force as a Communications Officer and fourteen additional years supporting her husband’s dedicated career as an Air Force pilot.
A resourceful math enthusiast and thirteen-year veteran of home education, she understands the struggle to balance the inspiration of Classical Christian Education with a restful learning environment. Educating her four children, as she and her family traveled around the world (Yes! Hawaii is THE BEST PLACE ON THE PLANET), has taught her that every student learns differently, but God’s provision never fails. She enjoys discovering whether a student needs to ‘see’ the subject through a unique lens or ‘handle’ concepts with personal experiences and then providing learning opportunities tailored to their needs. Tracey’s dedication to the home-educated student and her love of math is one of the many reasons she’s excited to serve Schole Academy as the Algebra Tutorial Instructor as well as a private math tutor. email@example.com
