Missouri History Museum Homeschool Day

Our city and state are culturally diverse places, thanks in part to the many immigrants who have settled here. At this month’s Homeschool Day, students will consider questions such as: Why do people immigrate? How do people build a community in a new place? What are some ways to make a positive impact in a new land?

Join us from 10am to 2pm on Monday, January 22! Click here to register.

ONGOING EVENTS

Driver’s Training

Hello. My name is Tom Heisserer. I am a homeschooling father of eight children. I have a fully insured driver’s training service in the St. Louis area. My background includes being a former Missouri State Highway Patrolman and a current accident reconstructionist and insurance claim investigator with a large insurance company. I have a current unrestricted Missouri driver’s license and am fully insured. I have taken the Protecting God’s Children class and have my background checked every two years through the Archdiocese of St. Louis.

Training will include: reviewing the Missouri Driver’s License guide; taking practice written tests; learning how to change a tire; and one on one driver training in all types of traffic situations. In addition, I will provide instruction on what to do if you’re in an accident as well as what to do if you are pulled over by the police. I will keep a log of hours for the Missouri driver’s license test.

Whether you have a permit and no driving experience; or you have some experience and need to brush up on your skills before taking the driving test; or you need help studying for the written test before your permit; or even a newly licensed driver that could use a bit more practice I can tailor the training to you.

I will meet you at your house and provide training in my Ford Taurus which is equipped with a passenger side brake pedal.

For more information on availability, rates, or any other questions you may have please email me at 8jsdrivertraining@gmail.com or call 314-837-4337.
