I have been involved in education for 30+ years, either as a public school teacher or as a homeschooling/unschooling parent and teacher.  I am a Texas-Certified High School Geography teacher and Middle School World Studies teacher with a lifetime teaching certificate.  I have ten years of experience teaching in the public schools in Texas.  My expertise is in Geography, Economics, Government, History, and the Culinary Arts.

I am a naturalized American citizen.  I spent my early childhood in Belgium and grew up on Long Island in New York.  I am a Belgian/Greek American.  
No homework is assigned unless requested by the learner.  Learners are required to come to class prepared with their colored pencils, a ruler, a medium-sized black marker, a highlighter, printouts of the maps, and their list of map locations.  Color printouts are preferred, but not absolutely necessary.   
Links to the maps and the list of map locations are posted to the classroom approximately 24 hours prior to class. Students are expected to print these out and bring them to class along with a few colored pencils and a ruler. There are usually two or three maps, plus a list of map locations. If you are able, please print these out in color so you can see the blue rivers more clearly. Black & white printouts are certainly acceptable.
All assessments are informal.  These lessons are meant to be relaxing and are really just an introduction to the Geography of Europe and to the individual countries we will study since we only have 55 minutes.  I will try to end the class with a short and fun quiz-like game.  
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
I create all my lessons on Nearpod.  The learners will be given a link to the Nearpod lesson at the beginning of each class.  Learners should be familiar with splitting their screen, where Zoom will be on one side of the screen and the Nearpod lesson will be on the other side of the screen.  This skill is not difficult to learn. If this is an unfamiliar skill for the learner, the parent may wish to assist the learner for the first lesson or two.  Instead of splitting their screens, some learners choose to use two devices, which is ideal.  
I use MANY resources.  It's not possible to list them all.... it depends on the country.  Below is a list of the sources I use the most.  

Google Earth
Google Maps
The Economist Magazine 
The Economist Group's Democracy Index
Foreign Affairs Magazine
