During this course, everyone will write an Ebook of their choosing. The class will also last 9 weeks. The first 6 weeks will involve learning about etymology, developing the habit of researching and learning the meaning of the words you speak and read. We will do that by reading sections of books, research articles and more to elevate our consciousness when it comes to language and how it's used. Then, we will create our own short Ebooks during the last 3 weeks.

Astrology is an ancient tool used to describe the energy on this planet and within all of us. Most people think of their sun sign (i'm a Gemini, Taurus or Scorpio) when thinking about astrology. However, astrology is much deeper and a great tool to learn more about yourself. Carl Jung brought astrology into psychoanalysis. With this class your child will be able to psychoanalyze themselves and even yourself. The type of astrology we will dive into is tropical or western astrology.
The 3 weeks, we will learn about the elements, signs, planets and houses. The last 6 weeks, we will dive into reading your own chart.
I have gained a great deal of insight into myself due to astrology and I look forward to passing on this empowering knowledge.

What People say about

Berry Good Teaching...

Christopher 

"I was referred by a friend to Brandon to tutor my daughter in math when she was a senior in high school. For more than 10 years, she’s struggled tremendously with Math and its been my opinion that although she has great teachers, she needed someone that could spend time with her one on one to help her to comprehend what she’s working on. After trying several tutors, Brandon came through like a winning lottery ticket! His approach to teaching is unique in that he helped my daughter to improve tremendously by helping her learn the “language” of math. He was more concerned about her ability to test and work on her own than he was about just completing homework. He’s truly one of the best in the business!"

Shari, Gary and Seth 

“During the school year of 2013 our son began struggling with Math to the point that he was on the verge of failing the subject. We engaged Brandon to work with him so that he might get a better understanding. Our son began meeting with Brandon for one hour per week. On most occasions they would meet face to face but on the few occasions that we were unable to meet, Brandon would conduct the tutoring session over the internet via collaboration software (these sessions seemed just as effective as a face to face session). As a result of these tutoring sessions, our son’s understanding of the subject and his grades improved markedly. Brandon is an excellent instructor and connects well with his students.”

Veronica 

"The thing I appreciate the most is not only is he knowledgeable but he encourages and teaches you how to study better not only to succeed in the current course but future ones too. Thanks for teaching me how to fish! Highly recommended!"

Tisha 

"My 12 year old daughter had the privilege of taken this course and I was more than impressed with the content. To have not only the technical side of our culture but the historical side mixed in. Well organized. Can’t wait to see what comes next."

About the Teacher

Peace,

Growing up in D.C and Maryland, I took for granted the value of education. After experiencing college, I realized how much of a difference education could have been if there were more relevant topics to empower me and not just a cookie cutter way of learning or thinking. This reflection and contrast has led me into the teaching and educational path.

 

Now, I have been an Academic and Life Coach to teens for over 8 years. I have also been an online Professor on the University level and online teacher on the Middle and High School level. In 2019, I created Motherland Math which is an online course teaching African history and African math techniques that can be used today. Overall, I love to teach and learn. My teaching philosophy is that everyone has the ability to learn, but not everyone learns in the same way. I also believe that learning should be practical and in line with a child's interest and prosperity. 

Outside of work, I am a Husband and Father of two beautiful children. I also like to read, travel, teach and experience life with my family.

 

All the best!

 

Brandon L. Berry
