Are there specific times my child will need to be online?
There are seldom specific times required. Students can work when it suits them. The only exception to this is Spanish where students do need to participate in online discussion a few times each semester. But there are a number of different times offered so you do have some flexibility.
Will my child receive a grade?
Yes – for all full semester classes they will, and also for the short computer classes. There are some of the short classes which do not have assignments that are graded.
What if my child struggles with the material?
Students have access to the teacher and the teaching assistants – they are all just a message away! Messages are usually answered within 24 hours during the week.
What does a typical week look like?
Obviously this differs from class to class, but to help you get an idea, we have set up a demo classroom with the first week of most of our classes. Click here to access the Demo Classroom. Then use the login email@example.com with password fundafunda.
What is your educational philosophy?
In short, we try to accommodate different learning styles, we want to teach mastery of the material, we want the students to be actively engaged in their learning – and we want them to enjoy it. For more info read our blog post on the topic.
What is your refund policy?
We understand that you may realize our classes are not a good fit for your child and so we offer a full refund for the first 14 days after a class starts. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org.
