We currently offer courses at:
Horace Mann Elementary
Our Creative Writing classes are open to children from K - 5th grade who love writing, and those who want to love writing, but might need a good dose of motivation. Even those who resist writing at all costs are guaranteed to find fun in the writing process!
Creative Writing activities are designed to be accessible to all ages with the understanding that children will approach their work in unique and individual ways. The wide age range allows for friendships to form across grade levels, for older students to take pride in being role models to younger ones, and for collaboration and sharing to motivate each learner.
Our Acting teachers are passionate about inspiring a love of acting and theatre in children. By learning acting techniques, harnessing improv skills, rehearsing scenes and monologues, and overall developing confidence, our courses are FUN and engaging! Classes are currently taught at Stoddert Elementary, Horace Mann, and in private workshops at Book Busy in the Palisades.
We love incorporating yoga into our teaching! Look out for yoga workshops related to Creative Writing and other topics. We find that letting loose, breathing, and creating yoga poses together puts the mind in a beautiful place for learning to happen!
Individual tutoring is offered in a variety of subjects, in the comfort of your own home or in Georgetown. Tutoring is especially tailored to your child's own individual needs and goals. Our focus is on inspiring your child to love what we are teaching them and our sessions reflect this by being creative, engaging, differentiated, and unique!
Small Group Learning
Tutoring is also offered in predetermined small groups. This works best in groups of 2-5 children, when all participants are focusing on the same subject matter. For example, if you and another parent or a group of parents would like your children to focus on similar subjects, we will work with them together. This can be especially fun for the children. We make sure to provide an equal balance of work and play! Our goal is that participating in small group learning will boost your child's skills, confidence, and willingness to focus on the subject.
Kindergarten is a very special time for children and their families. It is also a time when families can feel stressed about preparing appropriately, and that's where we come in! If your child is entering school in the coming weeks, months, or even years, we can help them get ready for the fun that awaits by learning and practicing letters and numbers, familiarizing them with books, preparing for further socialization, and boosting their excitement and enthusiasm for the learning adventure to kick off. In turn, we find that their families are able to enjoy this special time to the fullest.
