Workshops

In addition to our high quality 1-on-1 tutoring, Tutorpedia offers project-based workshops for middle school and high school students. Students can choose from over 30 workshops that are designed to be fun and engaging, but also to build essential skills that students can use to help themselves in school, work, and life.

Workshop Subjects

Workshops typically involve 6-12 students and last 12-20 hours (6-10 two hour sessions), but they can be customized to fit almost any schedule or time frame. In our workshops, students cultivate essential skills and habits of mind in a fun, extracurricular context, and they have the chance to work collaboratively with peers and instructors alike.

Tutorpedia workshops are very flexible. Workshops can easily fit into schools’ after school or extracurricular programs, can be delivered to homeschooling circles or community centers, can be offered privately, or can be taught in the summers or over extended school vacations. There is no set location or time for workshops, as each workshop will have its own needs. Locations and times are handled on a case-by-case basis. Tutorpedia Workshops give enterprising educators the opportunity to publish their work on a reputable and recognized public forum, utilize innovative models of curriculum design and pedagogy, connect with students, and actually teach what they’ve always dreamt of teaching.

Our workshops are…

  • Project-based. At the end of every workshop, students will have made, done, performed, accomplished, or completed something that they can show to their family and friends.
  • Authentic. Students will not just be learning about something; they will be actively constructing their understanding and skills in a real context.
  • Personalized. Like Tutorpedia’s 1-on-1 tutoring, small group workshops take into account the needs and wants of every student that participates. Enrollment in workshops is kept small to ensure that nobody gets left behind or slips through the cracks. Workshops typically involve 6-10 students and last 12-20 hours (6-10 two hour sessions), but they can be as long or as short as the author wants.
  • Rigorous, but fun. Workshop authors and teachers have chosen the topics that they are working with. Not only are they passionate about their workshops’ subject matter, they are experts in it.
  • Enriching. Students cultivate essential skills and habits of mind in a fun extracurricular context, and have a chance to work collaboratively with peers who share their interests.
