Learning Honey is a private tutoring company that provides competitive academic and arts tutoring with activities in mindfulness and breathing incorporated into each session or workshop.  

 

Our Mission

 

Our mission is to help our children succeed both academically and creatively.  We provide each child with strategies so they can better manage stress, anxiety, inattention or hyperactivity both at home and in the classroom. At Learning Honey, we know that we must bolster a child's emotional and energetic states before they can truly excel academically. Our goal is to provide the tools that will allow each child to thrive and ultimately cultivate a lifelong love of learning. 

HOW IT WORKS

STEP 1: Schedule a Call  

We will explain in greater detail what we offer, our customized programs, and will prepare you and your child for the next steps.

STEP 2: Begin Sessions

Weekly or monthly packages are available at any location of your choosing. There is the option for 45 minute or 60 minute sessions. Group sessions and workshops are also available.

STEP 3: Receive Monthly Progress Reports

At the end of each month, we will provide progress reports to ensure that you’re aware of your child’s progress and what mindfulness techniques your child has been learning. 

 
 

Offerings

 
 

Mindfulness

Learning Honey follows Little Flower Yoga's well-esteemed Five Element methodology. We focus on three elements: Connect, Breathe and Focus.

CONNECT activities help children become aware of their emotions, the environment and the needs of others. These activities incorporate visualizations, and a short discussion.

BREATHE activities provide children with the tools to regulate and control their emotional and energetic states using breath. 

FOCUS activities provide children the ability to notice when their mind wanders and techniques to bring it back into focus. Often times children are told to focus, but are rarely taught how.
