moments, connection time and to assure proper connectivity).

Do the programs involve homework?

What should I imagine by private tutoring?

All our classes are virtual, so it does not matter where you are located. We use Zoom platform as it is robust and easy to use.

Our tutors are business professionals passionate about teaching and not traditional educators.

Each class consists of 3-5 interactive activities. A large portion of our class time is dedicated to open discussions. The tutor fosters constant student participation by encouraging each child to share his or her opinion and driving a productive dialogue.

Problem solving is an important part of the class, where the majority of problems are open-ended and encourage children to use own assumptions. We do this to teach kids how to solve real-life problems. We also encourage students to come up with challenging topics and questions.

The course curriculum is adjusted to each child’s interests and development level, so in one class we might spend more time watching videos of children entrepreneurs and trying to understand what they are doing and in other classes we might read an article about the import of vegetables from Spain into the UK to understand the concepts of supply and demand.
