West Harpeth Christian Tutorial Welcome to WHCT

Bonnie Kookogey

Why I teach at WHCT:
I am the wife to Kevin, with whom I have homeschooled our six children for the last twenty-one years. We are about to graduate our fifth student this Spring. All of our children have participated in and benefited from involvement in tutorials over our homeschool journey. I enjoy offering my time to the homeschool community, especially where I have experience in science. Hopefully my efforts can bless other homeschool families who are looking to supplement their educational journey.
Educational Philosophy:
Man’s mind is like an electric bulb that needs a current if it is to show any light. Everything is dark unless the current of God’s revelation is turned on. We cannot see ANYTHING without His light. Not a single “fact” can really be known and therefore understood, properly interpreted, or taught correctly unless placed under the light of the revelation of God. The laws of science cannot be known otherwise. Indeed, the scientific method itself, with its dependence on the regularity of matter, presupposes the Bible to be true; that God has created all things and holds everything together according to the counsel of His will. How else could one proceed on the expectation that tomorrow will bear any resemblance to today, that the future will look anything like the past? These are the foundations of all scientific pursuits, and they are rooted in a world defined by God through the Scriptures. I seek to tutor science with God’s written eternal word illuminating our path to what is visible to us in this present world. As Hebrews 11:1-3 states, “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. For by it the people of old received their commendation. By faith we understand that the universe was created by the Word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.”
Why I teach these specific courses:
I have a Master’s Degree in Nurse Anesthesia and my Bachelor’s Degree is in nursing. I have tutored our own children in science starting out with nature journals at a young age, up through all the high school level sciences. I have tutored many other students, along with my own, in General Science and Physical Science since 2009 at various homeschool tutorials in the Nashville area. I sincerely enjoy doing the experiments with the students and seeing God turn on their light bulbs to the concepts being presented. It is a delight to see the light in their eyes when they gain understanding of the Truth.
