Academic Learning Pods
Virtual and hybrid schooling can create anxiety for children and their parents. In addition to the academic challenges that attending school virtually or in a hybrid fashion can create, children are missing out on vital social interaction with their peers.
At NexGen, our highly-qualified and experienced Pod teachers provide a fun and safe environment for facilitating your child's schooling. Our pod facilitators help students with their synchronous and asynchronous remote learning, guide them through lessons and assignments and provide them with socialization and enrichment activities.
We can either place your child in a pod or you can grab classmates, friends, or neighbors to create your pod of 3-8 children. Groups will be different depending upon needs and circumstances. For instance, pods may comprise same-age, same-grade and same-school children, have a mix of ages from families with multiple children, friends or neighbors and more. The reason pods can vary like this is that each child will be doing the work required by their own individual teacher. A Nex Gen pod facilitator will know what each child is working on and will be able to help each child individually as needed. Since the pod facilitator is not teaching a class, and is instead acting as support for each child, the age and town of a pod member can vary.
These pods will meet in-person during the school day, with a facilitator at your desired location or our Learning Center in West Orange, NJ.
The facilitator will keep students engaged and on track, and will handle any school-related tasks and issues head-on. In addition, pod facilitators are trained in Google Classroom, Canvas and/or any other program needed to help students keep up with assignments and hand them in on time.
If desired, pods can continue to meet after school for homework completion, tutoring, as social pods or for enrichment.
All Nex Gen teachers have been thoroughly vetted, with background checks.
When, and if, your school adopts a hybrid schedule, we will be there to support you. We will create pods around your child's schedule to make sure they keep pace with their schoolwork and are supported.
Let’s face it, your kids need to have fun after being cooped up for so long. We know that keeping kids happy, busy and moving is important, and we are available to support you either one-on-one or in small groups. Activities will be age appropriate, and fun. We will work with your children, while you work and do the things you need to do. Social Pods can be virtual or in-person.
TUTORING (one-on- one and small groups)
Our skilled tutors are available to tutor children in grades K through 8, across all academic subjects. Tutoring can occur after school hours, every day of the week including weekends.
Tutoring may be done one-on-one, or in small groups. Tutoring can be done virtually, in-person at your home, or at the Nex Gen Learning Center in West Orange, NJ.
Our experienced and highly effective tutors first focus for the short term on quickly improving grades and improving studying efficiency and for the long term, on helping children become self-sufficient students.
Sometimes students need support in all their coursework, not just in one subject. In particular, elementary and middle school students can often benefit from working with a tutor that helps them prioritize, plan homework time and complete assignments.
Likewise, a student will inevitably encounter tough assignments that leave them feeling confused or frustrated.
In these instances, a great homework coach can help students tackle these types of assignments, while also fostering self-sufficiency and independent learning skills.
This program can take place at our West Orange Center or in your home.
STUDY SKILLS & TIME MANAGEMENT
Many students are bright and have the desire to learn but still have difficulty in school. This often happens because they don't know how to learn properly or because they learn differently.
Students may have trouble keeping their binders and backpacks organized, have trouble with note-taking or they simply don't know how to study.
At NexGen, first we determine the specific needs of the student by speaking to the parent(s) and providing a comprehensive assessment of the student's skills. We then create a program designed specifically for that student. Our experienced coaches will work with your child on active listening skills, note taking, and on how to effectively and efficiently study for tests.
We also focus on teaching time management skills, such as: what assignments should be tackled first; how to log daily/weekly time commitments; project planning; and how to break large and small assignments into smaller chunks. Additionally, we teach students how to become organized and stay organized!
Let Nex Gen run your child's next party at our beautiful new center, your home or at another location chosen by you. Our experienced party hosts will hold your hand every step of the way, from inception through the day of the event.
