Are you finding yourself working remotely with kids home?
So here we are...without school, extracurricular activities and daily structure; the days are going to get long. We, as parents, have been planning for spring break for months now! However, Disney+ and Netflix will get boring...quickly. To top it off, many of you are now working remotely and will need some uninterrupted time during the coming days.
At The Pointy Pencil, we work with students on a daily basis at our location and online. As a team, we saw a need for helping families deal with continuing academics during this time of uncertainty. You can only handle so much free guides and academic suggestions before you just want someone to take care of it for you. We are incorporating several of our daily tutoring times into small group online classes.
Our goal is to create a fun online atmosphere in small groups of 5-6 students. Students will be able to see and hear each other, interact with activities and draw on a virtual whiteboard. We will teach students specific topics for each grade group and provide some structure to your day.
We are discounting ALL classes 100%! Classes are now FREE and will be discounted at the register. (normally $100 per class)

What It’s About:History meets hijinks in this first title in a hilarious new middle grade series when Ben Franklin accidentally time travels to a 10-year-old's home in 21st century America! Nolan is a typical kid living in a typical 21st century American town. Ben Franklin is, well, Ben Franklin—Founding Father, inventor of the lightning rod and bifocals, and more. When, through a bizarre set of circumstances, Nolan and his little sister, Olive, find Ben in their house, chaos isn't far behind. From introducing him to the toaster to taking him to the public library (another Ben invention) to preventing a nosy neighbor from blowing Ben's cover, Nolan does his best to be Ben's tour guide to the new world he helped form. With tons of funny illustrations throughout—plus graphic novel-style sections interspersed—readers will love adventuring alongside this awesome threesome.
