Meet the Tutor Team
Stephanie Farnsworth - Director & Upper Level Humanities Tutor
Having homeschooled my daughters for the past twenty years, I appreciate the importance of finding a program that meets your family’s academic, social, and spiritual standards. RCT does that and more! I am loyal to the classical method of instruction and approach all of my classes with the Trivium in mind. No matter the subject at hand, it is the love for learning and the Lord that are my foremost goals. In addition to classically homeschooling my own children, I myself was classically educated as a child. In high school and college, I excelled in writing, debate, history, and logic. With an undergraduate degree in government and politics and a minor in Spanish, as well as three years of law school at the University of Maryland, I am able to offer the students a unique perspective into the real life application of writing, debate, and logic. There are several classes that I am offering, each with its own important skill to be practiced and eventually mastered, so that it may thereafter be transferred into any chosen endeavor of the student. In addition to tutoring for RCT, I also privately tutor several public, private, and homeschooled students. My greatest joy outside of spending time with my family is speaking to groups about how classical education has changed my life and how it can change our world. I am very excited about the upcoming year and all that God has in store for both me and the students to learn.
Anna Fogg - Art & Life Skills Tutor - AnnaFogg.com
Who is Anna Fogg? I am a wife of one, a mom of seven, a disciple of Jesus Christ, Yoga instructor, reader of great books, bohemian cottage gardener, quilter & knitter, and a happy soul. Homeschooling for almost 24 years, my first priority has always been the classically-eclectic and joyful education of my children. I was a preschool teacher for the YMCA and the Friends School when I decided to come home educate my oldest child who was 2 years old. Realizing quickly that children are portable and education happens anywhere, I took my children with me whenever possible and continued to creatively find business opportunities to teach my art at various schools. I have taught in Illinois, Maryland, Washington, DC, and Virginia. My students have ranged from pre-school to college. My home has served as a classroom for quilting and sewing, scrapbooking, and arts of many mediums. I have
even had the privilege of teaching in various art shops in the community. For three years I served as a Classical Conversations Challenge Director and simultaneously continued to teach at Sankofa Homeschool Collective in Washington, DC which continues today. Discovering a great need for life skills in my older set of children, I founded the somewhat famous class, Metro Journeys, which allows students to independently traverse the environs, streets, museums and sights of our great Capital City. I was also an educational advisor and consultant for three years for the non-brick and mortar school and umbrella program, The Learning Community, Intl, located in Columbia, MD. In addition I also helped a new creative school, School for Tomorrow, to launch. Today I continue to have four of my seven children still educating in our home. I am a licensed Yoga teacher, teaching private lessons and semi- private lessons anywhere and group classes at FitCrush DC in Bethesda, MD. My oldest three children have graduated our homeschool and are enjoying the fruits of the years spent at home and around town without schooling, although never without education.
