What Can You Do?


Ten How's
What Can You Do?


What can you accomplish when you can study on your own, with a mentor, or with a few equally determined friends?  When a wrong answer is just a reason to try again, when the goal is learning and not a grade?  What can you accomplish?

Mathematics from Basic Math to Pre-Algebra in 25 hours.

Grammar from the parts of speech through the Elements of Style in 40 hours.

Reading from phonetics to a sixth grade reading level in 65 hours.

(Total number of class hours over 5 months for an average student.)

What can you learn when you really want to learn?  When you're free from coercion and artificial constraints?  When you decide what to study, when to study, and how to study it?  What can you learn?

What can you achieve when you're in charge?  When you feel respected and trusted?  When the only way things get done is to do them yourself?  What can you achieve?

High self-esteem, self-motivation, personal responsibility, and the skills of governance.
