This is a new concept,  E-Mail-a-Mentor program. If your child has a strong interest in a subject and there is a parent in our home school community that has a expert knowledge with a subject,  we can put the two together through the volunteer a mentor resource.  What better way to give back to our children and community than to invest in their education.  The mentor would be able to provide expert resources and answer problems that may arise in the course of study with the child.  Example:   say a child loves writing and English and there is a parent out there that has expert knowledge, a major in English,  through e-mail the mentor can give valuable advice to the child they are mentoring,  without having classes, scheduling, time to get together, or a child may be really advanced in electronics and there is a parent who is a expert in that field,  the mentor could lend a hand if the child runs into difficulty offer resources, research questions,  guide the child in  where to find more information, maybe even provide a lesson plan. This could be of help to all our home school families and it brings the whole family together being involved in our common goal of home based learning. 


So Contact Us if you want to be available as a volunteer mentor for a specific subject.

  The parents or children will be able to  E-mail the mentor to ask the mentors  for help, guidance  and  asked specific questions.  Please volunteer to be a mentor.

Mr. Leonard Breitstein  Math and Science


I would welcome the opportunity to provide home schooling classes and assistance to families who require such services.


I have been employed by the Montgomery County Public School System (on a part-time basis) as a Home and Hospital teacher for the past four years. In this capacity, I have taught more than forty high-school students mathematics (ranging from pre-algebra to calculus) and science on a one-on-one basis. In addition, I also have considerable experience tutoring many high school and younger students in Montgomery County in math and chemistry. Other experience includes preparing students to take the SAT and HSA math tests, and working with learning disabled and special needs students.



Prior to my teaching and tutoring activities during the past four years, I worked as a chemical and environmental engineer  for more than 30 years in private industry. I have a doctorate in chemical engineering from Columbia University.

John Fishback Nature Programs Home Page  Mission Statement My philosophy is based on a love of the natural world, which has consumed my life for as long as I can remember. I believe that my role is as a caretaker for the planet and wish to encourage in others a profound connection to the earth. Most importantly, I want to create a positive experience for children and adults in an outdoor setting.

Background. For those who are new to my programs, I'm an environmental educator with a degree in Natural Resource Management from the University of Maryland. I have taught youth and adults about the natural world for more then ten years. My self-employment began in 1994 with one home-school group and has evolved into Native American studies for public and private school groups, Nature adventure camps running continuously through the summer and spring break, teacher education seminars, birthday parties and other activities involving paintball, kayaking, fishing, caving, rock climbing, survival and most of all Native American crafts. I have studied with well-known trackers, biologists, and Native American elders; conducted an extensive wildlife survey; survived off the land; made log canoes, teepees and "Indian" Villages; learning kits; produced a wide range of crafts and many more natural related activities. Finally I'm a Emergency Medical Technician, First Responder and lifeguard.
