Parent/Child Tutorial (10-12 yrs), $185 - No Prerequisite

The child and parent take this course together.  This is a reading and discussion course.  A delightful reading list will engage the child with quality writing and will form an interesting foundation for taking discussion deeper than mere comprehension.  Students and their parents will find meaning in comparing their own experiences to those of timeless characters as they live through the challenges and joys that life provides them.

We recommend that parents review these works ahead of time to ensure they are a good fit for their children. Not all courses may be well-suited for each family, particularly when children are in a younger age range. We rely on parent discretion to determine whether or not a course will serve their child well.
