Empowering Students with Real-World Skills
What We Do for Families
Tutoring Sessions – Get extra support in important subjects.
Meet & Greet with Professionals and Follow-Up Writing Projects (Ages 8-
13) – Students will interact with professionals in the community, including
entrepreneurs, corporate executives, and government officials. Students will
engage in writing projects and practice communication skills by writing thank you notes to the presenters.
Interview an Innovator (Ages 14+) – Students will interview an entrepreneur or
professional whose work aligns to their interests. The student then will do writing
assignments that are published online. They’ll learn practical writing skills, build a
digital footprint that makes them more marketable, gain career inspiration, and
grow their network! We will guide you along the way!
Writing Workshops – Excel in writing in a fun and interactive way.
Drop-In Study Hall – Take a break and drop-off your kids to learn in a different setting supported by a professionally trained and caring teacher.
