    These art classes are for home school students from elementary to Grade 12. Mediums include pencil, wax crayons, watercolor, oil pastel, acrylic and clay. Some of the skills that the students will learn are: cartoon drawing, basic shading, still life, landscape, and portrait. Beside learning art techniques like value and composing art work, students will also learn the following: observing, self critique, and execution. This principle does not only apply in art but also in school, work, and life in general.

    Students are responsible to bring their own materials. Most of the material could be purchased in Dollar Stores except a few items like: a kneading eraser, paper stump, and oil pastels. To keep the students engaged, they will have opportunities to try different mediums to expand their experiences. They may also have the opportunity to showcase their work in public when the opportunity arises.

  • Simon Rose - Children and Young Adults - Online Writing Workshops
    Give your aspiring young authors the unique opportunity to work with a published author by employing an online writer in residence, right in your own home. Many children are interested in writing, but often they need help to channel their ability in a particular direction and give them the encouragement they need to move forward. Having access to professional advice can encourage a child in their creativity, whatever form that may take.

    Through a series of email assignments, we explore where ideas come from and how to turn them into stories, basic story structure, plot development, creating characters, developing dialogue and more to help develop writing ability.

    Check out the workshops on my website or contact me directly by email at sorcerersletterbox@gmail.com for further details.

    For any young authors who have work already completed that they would like assessing, I offer both coaching services and manuscript evaluation, details of which are available on my website at www.simon-rose.com.

  • Upstream Forest School
    At Upstream Forest School, we believe in child-led, play-based and inquiry-based learning.

All of our classes take place outside at McHugh's Bluff in Sunnyside, with an indoor space available for inclement weather and breaks.

    In September, we will be offering classes to homeschoolers on Thursdays. We have a 1/2 day option in the morning, or a full day option all day Thursday. Forest School is a philosophy where risky play, free age mixing and repeated access to an outdoor space is vital to a child's development.

  • Walden Forest School
    Walden Forest School is a unique educational experience offering children the opportunity to further develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning in a woodland environment.

    While learning through unstructured play, using field guides, tools and storytelling, kids discover different behaviors, physical and social boundaries. By revisiting the same locations, children develop a stronger relationship with nature. They are able to observe, and be a part of, the changing of the seasons and to see the natural ebbs and flows for all of its inhabitants.

    At Walden, we have small facilitator ratios of 1:6 to help engage the children with one another, build lasting bonds with their peers and allow the facilitators greater interaction to provoke questioning and inquisitiveness.

    Our goal is to promote healthy, spiritually attuned, creative and free thinking little humans!

    Situated in North Glenmore park, next to Glenmore Reservoir, we support outdoor education in the heart of Calgary.

    Visit us at www.WaldenForestSchool.com for more information about our programmes and to register.

  • Isaura Oliveros - Spanish Tutoring
    I am a private tutor for conversational Spanish, being this is my native tongue. My students' main goal is to practice and improve their speaking/listening skills, as many of them use any kind of Spanish language program.

    The classes are interactive. Some games and videos are used to maintain the student interest in the class. The very first class will help to evaluate the student's Spanish level and expectations, and then I prepare a study plan which is later sent to parents for their information and follow up.

    Classes are at my place and parents are allowed to stay during classes if they want to. I am located in Calgary, NW (Beddington). Fees are hourly and vary depending on number of students attending the class. I can provide references upon request.

  • Michelle Rocha - Tutoring
    I have been a private tutor for the past seven years to students in every grade level, specializing in Math and English. (Lessons can be provided in both English and French Emersion.) I teach a wide variety of students, from those who are struggling to succeed all the way to those students who feel they are not being challenged. I come to the student's home and provide lessons in the most personalized way possible. Rates vary for tutoring, by age/grade and intensity. I enjoy this line of work and have had repeat clients for the past 5 years.

    I have no preference to the area of the city where the student lives as I am highly organized and work with families to accommodate extra-curricular activities as well as other academic and personal obligations. I have references upon request and have taught both in the private and public school systems at every level. I would love to hear from you about your child's needs and goals for the future. Together, we can achieve them. I am young, energetic and personable. A tutor that your child can relate to and is comfortable learning with and taking direction from. I do my very best to foster the most suitable learning environment for your child and in doing so, my business has been mostly referrals. Please feel free to contact me directly at any time and I look forward to hearing from you. I would like to offer my services to home schooled children.
