Phones do not provide for the learning experience we desire.
Please make sure the sound and video are working and your child is prepared to have video camera switched on at all times.
Normally we do not assign any homework. Some of the students ask for homework and we are happy to provide this option.
Each course participant will receive FunFinance certificate.
Each program is different. We help 9-year-old students to read and understand business news, we have 10-year-olds building their investment portfolio, we helped 13-year-olds discovering how to start their own business. Our business school for kids offers a unique individualized approach to each child.
As with every educational program, the success of the learning experience will depend on the relationship our tutor will create with your child and his / her desire and motivation to study. That is why we plan a trial class for both your child and our tutor to decide if they want to start the learning process together. Feel free to book the trial class here.
Class length is 45 min – 1 hour. (We tend to have 45 min of “productive study time” and reserve up to 15 min for “fun” moments, connection time and to assure proper connectivity).
All our standard programs are 5 weeks long. The first one is “Money Basics”. After that, your child will continue to”Business Basics” and later on to “Young Investors”.
In private tutoring, we evaluate each child´s progress and interests and adjust the content based on that. It is also possible to submit your family´s wishes and priorities and we will try to include that in the class content.
We don’t want to sound arrogant, but we can promise that you can expect a considerable improvement in your child’s understanding of the modern world.
Our program offers a systematic approach successfully applied to kids and youth in different age groups.
If you inform us before the course starts we will try to plan the lessons based on your availability. If you inform us a week in advance a make-up session with a tutor will be scheduled. Your child is entitled to one free-of-charge make-up session.
The “Business Basics” program is for children with an advanced knowledge of the English language.
We occasionally offer programs in Spanish – contact us for more information.
The program says “9 years old is the minimum age” but I think my kid who is younger can handle it. Can I enroll him anyway?
It is possible to receive classes outside of the announced time slots if you are able to organize your own group. The minimum amount of students in such a group is 3.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your time suggestion.
To participate in a FunFinance program your child needs a fast Internet connection, Skype and a laptop. A headset is not required but might be handy depending on the amount of background noise. We recommend you to place your child in a separate room for better concentration, or at least a quiet corner in a joint living space where he or she will not be disturbed during the class by members of a family, siblings, etc. passing by.
Your child is entitled to one free-of-charge make-up session.
We are always open to discuss any adjustments, as we only want motivated students. However, as the course progresses, it might be difficult to move your child to another program, as other children’s learning experience in the classroom depends on your child’s contribution.
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 include assumptions to teach kids how to solve real-life problems. We also encourage students to come up with challenging topics and questions for their peers. 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.
For the one-on-one tutoring program, the maximum student age is 16 years old. For the “Business Basics” program, we accept children up to 12 years old. Children above 12 are welcome to participate in our conferences or on-demand tutoring programs. Contact us to learn more about our additional programs.
The “Business Basics” program is developed for children 9-11 years old. The minimum age of student must be 9 years old.
