Feeling overwhelmed this school year?

You're not alone.

We’ve spoken to hundreds of parents who fear their children will not receive an optimal education this year… or that their children’s health will be in jeopardy… or both.

Many more don’t know how they’re going to hold down their jobs, how to support their student with special learning needs, or how to protect the mental health and social aspect of their kids’ lives.



Whether you’re looking for us to spearhead your microschool or provide specialized private coaching, your child will experience the power of tailor-made education.


Our gifted academic mentors bring a contagious passion for learning that is second to none, motivating even the most disengaged student.


Relationship is the bedrock of education, so our team is deeply committed to building the kind of rapport that inspires both emotional wellness and outstanding academic results.

Your BrainStorm academic mentor will be capable of any of the above. If your child is enrolled in the school and you'd like our help with school work or creative supplementation or both, we can do it.

If you are disenrolling your children and prefer a homeschooling experience instead, we can spearhead that for you as well.

We can accommodate any size group of students.

Not necessarily. If that's how the group has organized itself, great. If they're mixing ages, that's ok, too. We give families the maximum flexibility possible.

In cases where the ages are wildly distinct, we will discuss creative ways to make it work.

Through weekly check-ins, parents will have the opportunity to discuss progress with their appointed educational consultant.

During the first several weeks, interactions will be significant and addressed on a case-by-case basis as plans are made & the system is designed.

Once the group is off to the races & the parents have been equipped to lead, weekly check-ins will settle into a once- or twice-weekly rhythm, as needed.

Each microschool is unique, so each solution will be uniquely suited to match.

The requests can vary from "just the core 4" to "please help with nutrition, phys ed, music, & art" to "please go above and beyond the school curriculum by leading nature studies, geography, foreign language, coding, etc.".

We can help design all elements of the school-at-home/ microschool experience. That includes everything from making the physical space conducive to learning, to organizing a structured schedule & workflow, to identifying resources and strategies for engagement.

Tutors may reserve the right to wear masks for all in-person sessions. Client and tutor will discuss the plan for maintaining a safe environment for their in-home sessions, based on the applicable state and local guidelines (subject to change) and the setup of the home as well as the comfort level of both tutor and client.

If the school year is handing you lemons...plant the seeds & grow an orchard!
