We’ve been working out the details but we are finally ready to roll out our latest educational offering . Rippowam Labs has begun to offer an after-school STEM tutoring program for Fairfield County students aged 10-18.
We’ve been offering one-off classes in robotics, microcontrollers and computer programming for years – but we realized that some students may not be available on the particular days and times that they were offered. Now, this instruction can be had any day, after students end their regular school day .
We’ll be a one-stop shop for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) instruction. Just drop off your son or daughter after school (beginning around 2 pm) and the learning can begin.
We already have one curriculum worked out – microcontrollers. In this course of study, your son or daughter will visit with us 1 day a week (2 hours) for 10 weeks. And, by the end, they will have all the knowledge needed to begin a top-notch university engineering program.
But that’s just one .of our courses of study. Any of our prior summer camp classes are available to be taken via a series of after-school classes. So, if your child didn’t get to attend one of these camps in the past, now they can get the same learning any time. Our lineup of summer camp classes is for 2018 is coming out soon. All of these will be available in an after-school format too!
And don’t forget, Tisha Saffa has joined our team as a math tutor. She’s got 20 years of experience in tutoring math to kids in the Stamford/Darien area. Besides making math fun, she is an expert about removing all your child’s anxiety – and to make this all-too-important subject a strength in your child’s world. She’s been known to increase SAT tests scores by 400 points!
More courses of study are on the way for after-school learning. We’re putting the finishing touches on our Summer Camp lineup for 2018. These will easily be the coolest tech learning experiences that have ever been offered by us – or anyone else – in the area. Stay tuned!!!
The cost for this individual instruction is $75/hour. All students and their families automically become members of Rippowam labs, enabling them 24-hour access to our facility – and all our cool tools!! *Tisha Saffa has her own rates.
