Astronomy Course Enrolment – Who can take the courses?

The Astronomy course enrolment is open to pretty much anyone with an interest in astronomy. All the astronomy courses I offer at Planet Earth Education are designed to take anyone’s interest in astronomy and develop it into a healthy knowledge of the subject. I can tutor any age range and tailor the support to suit the learner’s needs and requirements.

I have had an extensive student spectrum from assisting and supporting parents in-home tutoring their children to helping the older generation develop their hobby in retirement. My courses are available for both beginner and amateur astronomer, or home educator packs.
