How we make it work

TekkieUni specializes in operating live-online sessions with full real-time interaction guided by an experienced and attentive teacher, because we believe that with a little help every child who wants to learn – can!

  • Learning together

    Learning is all about connecting. That's why we use a video conference software allowing the small size group of children to get to know each other and their teacher. The teacher uses a shared screen option so everyone can see what she is doing on her desktop, and kids can fully participate in the lesson by using the microphone or the chat.
  • Hands-on experience

    In addition to the weekly live lessons, students are invited to join a live weekly Q&A session with a teacher present in class. The session is dedicated to provide personal assistance with students' projects, exercises and questions. All the live lessons and practice sessions are automatically recorded and available for students during the course.
  • Project-Based Learning

    Students learn by doing and work on interest-based projects, which create a fun class dynamics where we don't present the answers but look for them together.
