Online Classes

When students read Dr. Jay L. Wile’s science books they often think, "It sounds like he’s talking to me!" Now you can find out exactly what it’s like to have Dr. Wile talk to your child about science, because he will be teaching online courses in biology, chemistry, and physics during the 2017/2018 academic year!

His online courses will consist of one 90-minute videoconference per week for a total of 32 weeks from September 11 through May 16. In those videoconferences, Dr. Wile will cover the material discussed in his books, show the students videos that illustrate relevant concepts, and give his interpretation of current scientific discoveries that relate to what is being covered. Most importantly, he will answer all your student's questions.

Dr. Wile will also grade your student's tests and laboratory notebook entries, so that you will have an independent evaluation of his or her performance. If you have ever wanted your student to learn science from a real expert, this is your chance!
