STEAM Engine Education's Home-School Programs are offered by tutors certified proficient to meet children's needs. Home-Schooling available form 8:00 am - 3:00 pm. $22/hour*. All fees include supplies, materials, books, papers, and tools for each student. Families, guardians, or teachers will receive a daily personalized account of the child's learning from throughout the day. STEAM Engine Education strives to create a safe and contained learning environment, built to meet every student's needs, built to help them learn.
Our approach to each subject, when Home-Schooling:
Children learn best when they are actively engaged in topics they have a personal interest in. Unless a traditional lesson is requested or required, STEAM Engine Education will use play, games, and other activities to help children achieve.
English / Reading / Writing / Literature
Authentic children's literature. Writing on topics of high interest.
Always hands-on, minds-on, student-led, project-based activities. Giving students the opportunities, not typically available in a traditional classroom, to learn first hand through long-term science investigations using scientific inquiry processes.
To learn math proficiently, children need to be able to relate the concepts to their own prior knowledge, understand the mechanism, and be willing and able to apply it to situations. There are times when memorization is optimal, such as for multiplication tables, compatible numbers, and time and money situations. However, most mathematics subjects will be taught in the most authentic possible way for each individual child.
The study of humans is a story, told through our common backgrounds and experiences. Within the story are weaved history, geography, sociology, and economics.
Habits of Mind
Learning about ourselves and our relationships with others. Teaching students how to build and maintain healthy relationships with their peers in a classroom setting. Zero bullying tolerated.
ALL SUBJECTS AND ACTIVITIES ARE CUSTOM BUILT FOR EACH INDIVIDUAL STUDENT
Some features of our Home-Schooling programs:
For the situations where a traditional school setting does not benefit your student, or their education. Full-Time Tutoring is a full safe learning environment made for your student. We will build a full curriculum for your student and teach them in our facility during normal school hours. It can be a school for your student who may have special needs, not being met in traditional school settings.
