About Taylor Made Science
Taylor Made Science offers a series of live, interactive, online science courses designed to prepare students for success in science at the university level. The series includes a year of preparatory middle school science and seven high school science courses, all at the Honors or Advanced Placement level.
Zoom class sizes are kept small to allow more one-on-one interaction between students and teacher. And, although the classes only meet once a week, the teacher is available between classes to every student by appointment through Zoom and through email at any time. Students can also set up safe online study sessions with classmates through the Canvas Learning Management System.
All science courses are hands-on with students completing real science labs as a part of their live online class experience. A lab supply kit is provided to each student. During class students complete their own hands-on work while collaborating with their lab group in Zoom breakout rooms, with the teacher available to help when needed.
For a list of available science courses with descriptions of each, please see the course descriptions page. To find out when courses will be offered, please see the schedule page. You may also want to look at an overview of suggested science pathways based on student college plans. For information about cost and payment options check the tuition and fees page.

Try a Free Class
I want parents and students to be comfortable with the level and the format of my science classes before they register. There’s no better way to determine if a class will be a good fit than taking it for a spin!
In order to give students a hands-on experience I have put together an introductory class on the Scientific Method, with sections adapted for different levels of science and math experience. Students will get to meet the teacher and work with other students as they complete a fun lab using household supplies. For more information and to sign up, see the free class page.
