Meet the Astronomy Tutor

Welcome to Planet Earth Education. My name is Garry Mayes and I am an experienced astronomy tutor. I have been teaching astronomy courses through long-distance learning for over 10 years.

My personal fascination with astronomy led my career path. I wanted to help others learn about our solar system and what effect it has on our lives. In addition to online astronomy courses, I also run a mobile star planetarium for schools and educational groups.

Online Astronomy Courses

If you have the same passion for astronomy and want to expand your knowledge, I have a correspondence course to suit you. The courses are designed to suit all ages, I have had students as young as 10 years old up to a mature student of 72 years old. It’s never too early or too late to learn about our galaxy.

The Astronomy course enrolment is open to pretty much anyone with an interest in astronomy. Find out more here.

Both of these courses consist of eight lessons, each lesson is relevant to a part of the syllabus.

The Advanced course offers further education on the subject to those who have completed their GCSE level or have some astronomical knowledge.

What About Support and Attendance?

Astronomy courses

As all my courses are correspondence courses it does not matter where in the world you live you can enrol and complete the course. You do not have to attend any classes as part of the astronomy courses.

I am happy to take calls out of hours to assist my students or answer any questions. You can contact me by phone, email or live chat for support with your course at any time.
