Learning Pods…smaller classroom, safer learning!
The goal of Learning Pods is to provide the benefits of traditional classroom instruction in a small classroom environment. Many school districts are transitioning to online instruction and this may leave children lacking in the areas of social interaction and direct teacher support. Many parents and students are being left with limited educational choice as they plan for the 2021/22 school year.
Learning Pods provide similar benefits to 1:1 tutoring at a much lower expense; by cost sharing with other parents (sessions are available for as little at $10 per hour). We will be offering Learning Pods covering a wide variety of skills to students from preschool through eighth grades. Each session will run for 11 weeks at 2 sessions per week (total of 22 sessions).
Here are the Learning Pods that we are offering for the fall session (click on the title for more information or to register for the pod):

Social Emotional – Grades K-3 –This pod will focus on Social-Emotional development.
