We’ve got you covered

Until we’re up and running, here are some useful resources based on the proposed curriculum.

Proposed Curriculum

Below you’ll find the proposed subjects (and dream teachers) in alphabetical order. The goal here is to teach you the skills we wish we’d learned in school, taught by as diverse a range of teachers as possible. Please contact us if you know someone who would be your favorite teacher (they don’t have to be famous or even leading experts in the field, a passion for teaching and their subject of choice is what matters most).
