ONLINE CLASSES

Online classes are delivered via ZOOM, which you need to install in advance.  Classes are taught to individual students and in groups in an interdisciplinary, holistic manner, which means that different subjects are interwoven and taught simultaneously, while the student learns how to build up their critical thinking skills and understand the connections among different subjects, their own self and the world around them.

Individual Classes:

there is one child in the class and the teacher follows the child’s individual ability to engage and learn. The focus is on the child’s way of thinking and doing and the relationship between the child and the teacher.

Group Classes:

students of mixed ages, minimum 2 students and maximum 5 students in the group. The teacher facilitates group connections and the ways of interacting among the children. The focus is on the learning through social interaction.

Before I add a student to the group, I do an evaluation on Zoom and then I create the most appropriate group where students’ abilities and talents will be maximised. I will be observing the relations and chemistry between the students at all times and I may make a decision of a group change where needed.

Age 5-11:

Registration Criteria: As a guardian, you book a free discovery session, where we will discuss the expectations and the child’s individual talents. You child will be accepted according to age and ability to individual or group classes in the recognition of the UK Key Stage 1 (age 5-7) and Key Stage (7-11).  After the discovery session, you will be able to book a package of classes responding best to the student’s needs.

Methods: While following the UK National Curriculum guidelines on skills and knowledge required on each school level, the teacher creates classes through PLAY, so the mind and the body is engaged at the same time and the learning outcomes are met holistically with the student in the centre. Classes are delivered in an interdisciplinary manner, which means that all subjects are interwoven (English is taught simultaneously with Maths, Geography, Science, Art) and there is no distinction between them. Students become fully immersed in an activity and the required skills are developed from one activity to another across a period of time.

Special request: There is an option of choosing a subject specific course, if the student needs it. It will be discussed in our discovery session.

Length: classes are delivered in 2 hour blocks with shorts breaks for snacks. I observe the children’s academic and physical capacity and adjust to their own mind/body rhythm.

Age 11-16:

Registration Criteria: As a guardian, you book a free discovery session, where we will discuss the expectations and the child’s individual talents. You child will be accepted according to age and ability to individual or group classes in the recognition of the UK Key Stage 2 (age 11-14) and Key Stage (14-16).  After the discovery session, you will be able to book a package of classes responding best to the student’s needs.

Methods: While following the UK National Curriculum guidelines on skills and knowledge required on each school level, the teacher creates classes around topics of interest and applies holistic methods of teaching which are unique and adjusted to the students’ own pace.  In this way, students become involved in the learning process from the outset in their full intellectual, somatic and mental capacity because they are curious and want to understand the complexity of the topic, solve problems, and find solutions.

Subject specific classes can be delivered, if there is such request. It will be discussed in a discovery session. At the moment the following subjects are delivered to Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3:

  • English Language
  • English Literature
  • Drama
  • Sociology
  • History
  • Art

STEM subjects will be delivered in 2021 by subject experts.

Length: classes are 1.5 hour long without a break, but individual ability to concentrate the of each student will be respected at all times.

 All classes are recorded for safety purposes. All data collection complies with GDPR laws. Recordings are stored for 2 years and deleted after that.

PARENTS TESTIMONIALS

Marta is a creative and enthusiastic teacher, who succeeds in bringing online lessons to life. Our daughter benefited immensely from her creative approach, especially arts and crafts combined with scientific experiments and writing poetry. Each session included physical element, like dancing or jumping around, and ended up with a quiet reading time on the floor. Thanks, Marta!

"Marta is a miracle worker! When we started working with her, it was evident that she really wanted to embrace each individual's child's needs and to make their experiences positive and enriching, which was such a challenge with a group of five primary school boys gathered on Zoom! As a parent I knew that my child would be able to express himself within the time they had together. All learning and knowledge was very creatively woven into each session. Marta gave my child confidence as she recognised his personal contribution to the classes alongside ensuring all the participants were also valued for theirs. I would highly recommend Marta to anyone who is looking for an educator that truly cares about their student and parents alike"

Thanks to Marta’s online classes, my son, Lluvia, aged 5.5 has become more independent in dealing with classroom situations and in his thinking process. He has got more strength from being heard with attention and got more and confidence in communicating with classmates from diffrent backgrounds and countries. . Marta’s classes were the window to the world for us and Lluvia wishes for them to be never-ending” ,

"Liam really enjoyed the online lessons. He was missing the company of children his own age, so interacting with the other children his age online made him feel part of the group and cheered him up. He particularly liked the experiments and making the city from cardboard paper, making a map of the United Kingdom from play-dough and making sea creatures from recyclable wastes. For us, parents, it was lovely to hear Liam laugh along with Marta and the boys in his class, especially during the school closure, which was not an easy time"
