The Instructor

Miss Carissa is a Traditional Catholic who was homeschooled for all of her education from kindergarten through twelfth grade. She received her B.A. in Natural Sciences/ Mathematics. She studied Latin in grade school, high school, and college. In addition to teaching math, English grammar, phonics, and Latin, Miss Carissa really enjoys teaching sessions about Our Blessed Mother, the Holy Angels, the saints, different seasons in the Liturgical Year, etc. She looks forward to sharing her love of these subjects with others.

Online Advanced Language Arts Group Class

with Miss Carissa and Miss Kirstie

(One Semester)

The phonics portion of both of the following Language Arts courses breaks down the English language into easy-to-follow rules. The English language is simpler than you think. It’s well structured and if you learn the rules it makes sense. The program I use provides rules for over 90% of the 1000 most commonly used words in the English language.


Children from kindergarten through twelfth grade can benefit from the Language Arts Courses:

  • Younger children can learn to read and can learn handwriting.

  • Older children can finally stop worrying about how to spell and instead master it! In addition, they will review/learn writing skills.

Materials: I’m working on putting together the list of materials needed. Please email me if interested.


Day/Time: We will meet once a week for group classes on Zoom for about 30 minutes. There will also be recordings that you can watch during the week.


Parents of younger children need to be committed to doing the assignments every school day with their children. Older children will need to do the assignments themselves every school day. If the assignments are not done each school day the children will not make progress.


Contact us if you are interested or have any questions.

"We have done several sessions with Miss Carissa and she is a wonderful teacher. We have really enjoyed the content and the thoroughness she provides of the subject matter. We love how fun she makes each class with games and supplemental activities to enrich the learning. The handouts are fantastic, restating the lesson taught with extracurricular worksheets to solidify the information learned. Sometimes we have experienced having her sister teach the kids traditional music as well, which has been a real gift. Highly recommend her courses!"
