Homeschool for the 21st Century

Christine Filipek


After growing up in Connecticut, Christine graduated from Pensacola Christian College with a bachelor’s degree in Education and a minor in Bible and psychology. She married her college sweetheart, Keith, and they soon moved to Michigan. They both knew that before having their first child that they would homeschool and they both have enjoyed the journey. Besides homeschooling her own children for over 20 years, Christine has taught in private Christian schools and to other homeschool families in her home for several years before teaching homeschool classes locally.

Christine began REACH Tutorial in 2012 and has been teaching classes in a variety of areas and manages several teachers to meet the needs of local homeschoolers. She and Keith have served in leadership positions for over 15 years with two local homeschool support groups and at the state level. She feels that God has put her in this place and time to share her passion for excellence in home education and to help other homeschoolers continue their homeschool journey.

Science is one of her passions.  Over the past several years, she has delved into the research end of studying astronomy.  She was the head author of one research paper and co-authored two research papers of double stars, binary stars and red dwarf binary stars.

Currently, she is teaching High School Astronomy, Middle School Biology, MS Chemistry, Earth & Space, Physics, Creation Science and Geology.
