for kids


Take a break from teaching your kids and relax, while your kids have fun learning in our live online group activities on Zoom. 

Based upon years of highly interactive online tutoring, we've designed a series of group activities exclusively for kids ages 6-10 years old. From coding camps to the fine arts, your kids will have a blast connecting with other kids and the instructors as they build critical thinking skills. 

Best of all, these workshops are free for the entire community. So come and kick back, and let us do the teaching for a bit. 



We recognize that preparing never-ending snacks, homeschooling, while also managing your own (and your children's) emotions, can be challenging – especially if your working from home as well. As educators, we feel a duty to provide any and all support we can to families and students, regardless of their financial stability. Our PWYC classes eliminate the need to struggle for tuition or an enrollment fee. All students are welcome, free of charge, and encouraged to donate an amount of their choice to support other families in need. 



for teens

With all of the homework and quizzes that teachers are throwing out to our teenagers, we understand just how frustrating it can be to not "get" a quintessential concept.


 While our one-on-one sessions are great for in-depth customized instructions, our weekly, live, group-sessions on College Admissions, SAT/ACT, and subject tutoring, is open to students of all ages and gives you that immediate help you deserve.
