First off, let me make sure that I include the disclaimers that no one pays me to "advertise" anything on this blog, and that when I pass along information about curricula, services, etc., I am not necessarily endorsing it. Simply, when someone informs me of something that sounds as if it might be beneficial to some homeschoolers, I share that with others. Each one is responsible for checking into it for himself.
On Thursday, April 29, 2010 I received the following e-mail from Steve Rosenoff ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) of Red Wagon Tutorials:
My name is Steve Rosenoff. For the past eight years, I have been teaching Apologia Science courses full-time for The Potter’s School and Apologia Academy. Last year I felt lead to start a new ministry. In addition to my live courses, I now offer my thirty-two class lecture series recorded on DVD. Each class is ninety minutes in length. I currently have the presentations available for General Science, Physical Science, Biology, Marine Biology, and Chemistry. I will adding in Advanced Biology and Physics next year. I am a sole-proprietor business, with a staff of two. I am looking to advertise in as many home schooling newsletters as my advertising budget will allow. Could you please send me information on how I could advertise with your organization? My web site is http://www.redwagontutorials.com/. I am endorsed by Dr. Jay L. Wile and have the full support of Apologia Educational Ministries in this venture. I also give away one free DVD to a missionary family for each one sold.
Thank you in advance for sending the advertising information. I appreciate your help.
