“If we wanted to, we could easily and inexpensively jettison the old, stupid structures and help kids take an education rather than merely receive a schooling. We could encourage the best qualities of youthfulness – curiosity, adventure, resilience, the capacity for surprising insight – simply by being more flexible about time, texts, and tests, by introducing kids to truly competent adults, and by giving each student what autonomy he or she needs in order to take a risk every now and then.” – John Taylor Gatto
We Are Voyagers tutoring specializes in K-8 education and High School Language Arts. Each session will focus on helping kids accomplish their learning goals while nurturing the creative genius that all of our kids possess. All tutoring sessions include exercises in critical thinking, logic and rhetoric. It is vital for kids to understand the why as well as the how.
We believe that the love of learning is a natural condition of humanity. But our system of “schooling” too often drains the excitement from the learning process. When kids find opportunities to follow their own paths, to explore their interests without predetermined outcomes, and to experiment without fear of failure, they find that learning is addictive and exciting.
If you are looking for a tutor for your child or children, please contact us for more information. We will set up a meeting to listen to your needs and to understand your goals.
Thank you for your consideration,
