Our students have the advantage of having a wide variety of skills taught in an engaging way that makes learning second nature.
All our group sessions touch upon these important skills:
Social & Emotional Connections
Understand and manage emotions, empathy, fostering caring relationships, make positive goals and decisions
Curiosity, growth mindset, and reflection
Attitude, flexibility, grit, motivation, manners, teamwork, conflict resolution, and empathy
Problem solving, analyzing, and observing
Fine & gross motor skill building, information retention, extended focus on the material to allow a go-at-your-own-pace mentality
Imagination, vision, inspiration, whimsy at all abilities - even for the “non-artsy” student
the state or quality of being creative
the ability to transcend traditional ideas, rules, patterns, relationships, or the like, and to create meaningful new ideas, forms, methods, interpretations, etc.; originality, progressiveness, or imagination
Creativity occurs when students are able to use their imagination along with critical thinking skills to create new and meaningful forms of ideas. This offers room where they can take risks, be independent, curious, and flexible. Instead of being taught to reiterate what was learned, students develop their ability to find multiple solutions to a problem.
Encouraging creativity, in the simplest form, is giving students the freedom to explore, be curious, and come up with new ways of problem solving during their learning journey. You do not need to be an artist to be creative!
Badging to Document Your Child's Journey:
A Visual Representation of Skill or Achievement
For most homeschooling parents, we understand that letter grades have little to no value to our learners because oftentimes letter grades reflect a propensity for test taking and not mastery of the material.
Our badges serve as a running portfolio of skills and topics covered in each session.
Our badging system allows children to document and celebrate their learning journey as they master skills and therefore inspire the child to be even more self motivated to keep advancing at their own pace and pursue the things they love. Receiving a completion badge is a big to-do and students feel a sense of achievement!
Every student gets to be a part of our Student Project Book and can order a copy for fellow classmates to autograph at our Student Book Release Party held in May.
It's a memorable way to end the year and for students to have a beautiful reminder of their time with us.
Twice a year, friends and families are invited to come in to the studio and view all of the work students have put into their projects and portfolio books! This is a great way to practice presentation skills and gain valuable feedback for other members of our learning community.
Student Exhibition is a big shindig that our families don't miss out on and look forward to!
We believe our students should be active members in our local communities too! We have coordinated food and coat drives, painted tables for a nursing home art room, and have made and donated cards to Bethel Social Services and Ann's Place to give to their clients.
Socializing opportunities abound with our annual Ice Cream Social, Park Days, Game Night, Family Fun Nights and more!
We also host the Multiverse Expo and older students help with all aspects of this event. This year, they learned how to face paint and shared their skills at the event!
We shy away from teaching hot topic issues such as religion, politics, race, sex education, and gender as we believe as parents, it's up to you to discuss your beliefs with your children.
If any of these topics come up in conversation, we gently remind students that they are discussing an at-home topic and to continue the conversation at home with their family.
We pull from our extensive on-site library and other resources to create experiential and highly creative sessions that are a constant evolution to meet the needs of each child.
As a tutoring center, we are not a part of a school or under the umbrella of the public school system, we do not ask for health forms or vaccination status.
We were mask optional for the duration of the pandemic and will continue to remain mask optional if mask mandates are reinstated.
Tutoring fee includes all curriculum, materials,
Private tutoring fees, group tutoring sessions, workshops, and mini-sessions, can be paid in monthly payments. We use FACTS to provide this service for us for an annual family fee of $55.
