September used to have an exciting tang in the air–the spice of crunchy autumn leaves, the incense of fresh pencil shavings, the earthiness of a leather-trimmed backpack and the thrill of its zippered compartments. Not this fall. With the pandemic, the only whiff most of us are smelling is panic. We’re all anxious about starting school at home.
How can I juggle my job with homeschooling my children–again?
Will my kids fall behind in school because they’re not in the classroom?
What can be done about the lack of socialization when students aren’t in school?
No one knows for sure when schools will re-open, but don’t stress out. Call on our expertise. We understand that many of you are too busy working your own jobs to tackle yet another job of supervising schooling. We understand that many of you don’t feel qualified to explain all subjects or answer all of your children’s questions about their school assignments. We understand that many of you are worried about your children’s emotional well-being when they are without the routine of school and are isolated from their friends.
A learning pod, a micro-school of similarly-aged students with common academic needs, is the increasingly popular solution many parents are turning to. By banding together, parents can provide their children a space to meet together safely, share the responsibility of overseeing academic progress, and give school days structure. Parents lack only one thing–a teacher in their makeshift “classroom.”
Our tutors can help your children with online schoolwork either by providing unique curriculum or by supervising students’ remote learning based on the curriculum provided by their schools. And with pods, you can split the cost.
If you have organized or are part of an organized learning pod and you are looking for a teacher to support academic instruction, reach out to us to discuss options and work out a schedule to support your efforts. We’re all in this together!CONTACT US
