Learning Pods

Handpick your pod members

Invite other families to join your group and align on goals (we can help with recruitment).

Learn from seasoned educators

We'll match your pod with the best educator for their needs and create a custom learning plan.

Continue learning from home

Enjoy the social benefits of traditional school from the safety and comfort of your own home.

With Covid disrupting the dynamics of the 2020-21 school year, many parents are worried about their students falling behind. Learning loss in one year can impact years to come.

One-on-one tutoring and educational mentorship is always the most effective support. But the cost for a whole school year isn't always manageable. If you want to ensure your student stays ahead through this coming year, consider a learning pod.

Sign up with other families from your student's class, and we'll find the right specialist to guide your students together. Save up to 65% of the cost! Additionally we will work to identify underserved students to invite to your group if you indicate you're interested.

If you’re interested in an in-person or at-home learning pod, for the protection of our whole community, parents and tutors will be required to sign a waiver in compliance with CDC guidelines regarding COVID-19 protocol.

Pursuing Equity Together

Many parents are asking how equity can be pursued for families who can’t afford learning pods. As a non-profit committed to equity and with relationships with schools across the Bay, in most cases we can find underserved students who would fit your learning pod. If you’re interested, call us at 510-658-7500.
