Remote Learning &
Homeschool  Support

Our world-class tutors and education consultants can develop a home school or remote learning support program that is customized for your middle or high school student’s learning needs. Programs include one-on-one tutoring, small group instruction, homeschool curriculum consultations, and academic management.

Online Small-Group Instruction Grades 6-12 (Learning Pods)

Mindfish is offering online small-group instruction for students in grades 6 through 12 during the 2020-21 school year. We will tailor instruction to your learning pod, whether you want small-group tutoring or enrichment of your brick-and-mortar school’s curriculum or support for a homeschool curriculum of your learning pod’s choice. Learning pods are a great way to encourage socialization and lower your individual costs by inviting your child’s friends to be a part of your learning pod. Our learning pods will consist of 3-5 students from the same class base, to ensure that all material covered will be relevant to all students in the group. You form the learning pod, and we will help you determine the ideal weekly schedule, customize the curriculum used, and provide individualized updates and feedback from your pod’s instructor after each session.

Our expert tutors have deep backgrounds in many academic subjects:

  • Math (Middle School Math, Algebra I and II, Geometry, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, AP Calculus, Statistics)
  • Science (Middle School Science, Environmental/Earth Science, Chemistry, Biology, and Physics)
  • Literature (American Literature & Composition, World Literature & Composition, AP Lang and Comp, AP Comp and Lit, etc.)
  • Social Studies (U.S. History, European History, World History, US Government, Economics, etc.)
  • AP test preparation – Our tutors can also supplement your academic instruction with best practices for preparing.

The base cost for a learning pod of 2-5 students is $160/hour for the entire group (in other words, $32-$80/hour per student, depending on the size of your learning pod).

Give us a call at (720) 204-1041 or send us an email at info@mindfish.com and we will be happy to discuss creating an online learning pod program that meets your middle or high school students’ needs.

One-on-One Academic Support

Did your student struggle with the switch to remote learning last year? Does your student need some extra help with a particular subject or more advanced work to hold their attention? Are you home schooling this year but worried about teaching your student a particular subject, like calculus or physics? Does your student plan to take AP tests or SAT subject tests? Mindfish is here to help.

We can develop a customized remote learning or home school support program for your student, composed of one-on-one tutoring support. Packages can be customized to include a single subject area or an entire grade level of material. We will customize your tutoring session frequency based on your student’s needs, ranging from bi-weekly to several times per week.

Our expert tutors have deep backgrounds in many academic subjects:

  • Math (Middle School Math, Algebra I and II, Geometry, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, AP Calculus, Statistics)
  • Science (Middle School Science, Environmental/Earth Science, Chemistry, Biology, and Physics)
  • Literature (American Literature & Composition, World Literature & Composition, AP Lang and Comp, AP Comp and Lit, etc.)
  • Social Studies (U.S. History, European History, World History, US Government, Economics, etc.)
  • AP Tests – Our tutors can also supplement your academic instruction with best practices for preparing for AP tests.

We also offer support for more general academic skills that are essential to a student’s success in middle or high school, college, and even grad school and the professional world:

  • Research projects (at any stage, from topic proposal to final report)
  • Essay writing (at any stage, from brainstorming to final draft, and even grading support for parents)
  • Study skills (help with staying organized, beating procrastination, managing deadlines, etc.)

Our tutors also have experience helping students with learning differences, such as ADHD, dyslexia, or dyscalculia. With the switch to remote learning, many students who need differentiated instruction no longer get as much one-on-one help where they need it most. Mindfish tutors will adjust their methods to best work with your students to accommodate any learning differences.

One-on-one academic tutoring starts at $95/hour.  We offer a variety of discounts starting at packages of 15 hours. There are additional charges for lesson planning if necessary.

Homeschool Curriculum Consultations

Given the challenges of effective social distancing and distance learning in schools this year, many parents are considering homeschooling their students for the first time. In Colorado, parents who want to homeschool must send a notice of intent to their school district 14 days prior to the start of the school year. The selection of curriculum is at the discretion of the parent who is overseeing the homeschooling program, which must include at least 172 days of instruction with an average of four hours per day. This can be an incredibly daunting task for parents making this choice, especially those making the choice for the first time. Mindfish is here to help you develop a homeschool program that is customized to your particular student and their learning needs.

There are many things to consider when choosing a curriculum to use to homeschool your student:

  • What subjects should you teach? Colorado programs are required to include communications skills, math, history, civics and the US constitution, literature, science, depending on your student’s grade level. Beyond those, you may also opt to teach elective courses based on your student’s interests.
  • What type of curriculum do you want to use? How independent is your student when learning new material? There are a variety of instruction types, including video and internet-based lessons, parent-taught lessons, and textbook-based curriculums.

Mindfish’s education consultant will walk you through the process of selecting a curriculum that is best for your child’s learning needs, your budget, and your preferred level of involvement/direct instruction time. Our consultation is $149, which can be credited toward your student’s personalized tutoring support or academic management program.

Your consultation will include two 30-minute meetings with our homeschool program director. The first session will allow our homeschool program director to learn more about your student’s individual goals and needs, from both the student and parent perspectives, based on a discussion of the student’s learning style, course preferences, and goals. The homeschool director will follow-up via email with any necessary placement tests. During the second session, the homeschool program director will walk you through her recommendations for your customized curriculum, presenting samples of the materials as available and any modifications needed to assist your student or meet their educational goals.

Give us a call at (720) 204-1041 or send us an email at info@mindfish.com to schedule your consultation.

Ongoing Academic Management

Are you a new or returning homeschooler who wants assistance with lesson planning, pacing, and grading? Mindfish can provide an education consultant to assist you. Your education consultant can help customize your student’s homeschooling experience by conducting regular check-ins with the parent and/or the student to discuss lesson plans and objectives, provide weekly assignments, adjust the pace of the curriculum, assess student progress and learning outcomes,  and/or grade work completed by the student. Academic management packages may also include individualized one-on-one tutoring for any topics that the student is struggling to understand.

Academic management tutoring is $130/hour.  We have a variety of discounts for packages of 15 hours or more. Give us a call at (720) 204-1041 or send us an email at info@mindfish.com to discuss setting up your academic management program.
