Mr. Layman's Homeschool History

Small Group Middle School Social Studies Supplement Class that's Aligned to CA State Standards.


All Aboard! 

Mr. Layman is piloting the

Homeschool History Time Machine!


Taught by a true history buff, Chris Layman's Supplemental Middle School Social Studies classes is where true connection and learning occur. His 6th, 7th and 8th grades classes are closely aligned to the CA middle school Social Studies curriculums and standards that students need to know to prepare for their future classes. Mr. Layman's 2H (Homeschool History) classes are taught in a comfortable, small-group, interactive yet rigorous setting. His classes are a great transition to more structured and rigorous high school classes. His laid back yet thorough approach is perfect for those students looking for the extra edge. 

Ideal for: Motivated students, future historians, sociologists, detectives and students who love different cultures! We also recommend Mr Layman's 2H for students who simply want more from their regular social studies class.

Mr. Layman's goal is to foster true learning in social studies and history and preparing the student for their future by creating a positive yet impactful learning environment.
