"We are about to start our 10th Session with Miss Carissa! We've studied the lives of saints, liturgical seasons, and most recently the Holy Angels. Every class is very interactive and packed with little known amazing facts about our Catholic heritage: relics, miracles, indulgences, etc. After each class we get a handout with activities for the week and beautiful devotions that we can add to our daily lives. Each session ends with a much anticipated Kahoot! trivia competition! My children and I have learned so much and are so inspired each week to treasure our faith and grow in holiness! Highly recommend families signing up for these sessions!" - M.T.
“It was a real treat to sign up for Carissa’s Angel class. The class was chalked full of amazing content. Her enthusiasm and cheerful demeanor added a sweet touch to the information she shared with my kids. I learned plenty too, and highly recommend anyone to sign up for this class with Carissa.” - G.M.
Participating in the classes you offer has truly enriched our home school. We have learned historical context for some of our venerated Catholic traditions, which in turn has deepened our faith. My daughters felt particularly inspired when studying about the Miraculous Medal. They have had fun as well, especially when you host a Kahoot challenge with the other participants. I can't thank you enough for the thoughtful and thorough work you do in presenting these classes!
May God Bless You, C.M."
"We really enjoyed your Advent Class I had so much fun doing the crafts" - C.R.
"You and Miss Kirstie did an amazing job with the Advent session! I’m so grateful we had the opportunity to join you. My children always learn a lot and I’m amazed at the breadth of what you cover. I’d encourage any Catholic family to take one of your classes. They are a great gift to families trying to know and live the Faith, and the price can’t be beat. Thank you so much!!" - J.B.
“We are about to start our sixth semester with Miss Carissa as a Latin teacher for our daughter. Having never taken Latin myself, it was a little daunting trying to teach it. My daughter looks forward to class with Miss Carissa each week even though the subject is not her favorite and does not come easily to her. Miss Carissa makes it enjoyable and manageable. She takes the time to explain things as many times as necessary and meets my daughter where she’s at. They have made much progress over the last few years. We are so grateful to have her as a teacher!” - K.S.
“We have participated in every saint study class that Miss Carissa has offered and we’ve never been disappointed. Each Saint, liturgical season, or other class topic is always extremely well researched and presented beautifully. Her weekly optional assignments are full of wonderful information and easy to implement into your home school as much or as little as you are able. She makes learning the information fun with crafts, quiz questions and a Kahoot competition that everyone looks forward to. So grateful for these classes and the opportunity it provides my children to interact with other Catholic children. Thank you Miss Carissa!” - K.S.
"Miss Carissa is the best tutor I have ever used!she's very good at helping me with math and making sure I understand it, she always goes above and beyond with helping and caring for her students." - E.J.
"My boys really enjoyed their first semester of Latin with Miss Carissa. She kept them engaged and interested and it was obvious that they learned a considerable amount in just 30 minutes each week. They look forward to their Thursday morning Latin lessons and I love being able to chat with Carissa frequently about their progress. Thanks for everything Miss Carissa!" - H.F.
"Carissa taught an Advent class this year which was jam packed with all sorts of great information about typology from the old testament and how the various biblical stories relate to our Lord Jesus Christ and His coming. Additionally she taught about various advent traditions and my children enjoyed lots of fun activities, including a quick music lesson at the end of each session, crafts, games, and more. They really had fun answering questions in a classroom setting, even amidst a zoom call. It worked out great and Miss Carissa was so patient and helped with the various technical difficulties we had on our end. Such a genuine desire to help others learn! Couldn't recommend her enough." - H.F.
"I just want to say thank you for everything. The kids really enjoyed the class and the content was presented so well and they learned so much!" - M.C.
"Every lesson is planned and prepared so well that I cannot help joining in to listen to the beautiful instruction Miss Carissa gives my children. I feel blessed and comfortable having her offer my children additional catechism other than coming from myself. The time taken to prepare the sessions are rich with prayer, instruction and sound Catholic teaching. The images and illustrations keep the children captivated and so every aspect of the lesson is exceptionally beautiful." - T.O.
