Online Learning for Adults

Hiring a private teacher to teach you a topic offers a unique way to learn for adults. It’s an ancient idea—this is how aristocrats learned until the industrial era—that offers a compelling alternative to signing up for a scheduled course.

With a private teacher working with you one-to-one, this is a completely personalized, completely flexible form of online learning for adults—at your time, at your speed, the topics you want to learn.

What sets this apart from other online learning is that it’s a live, one-to-one experience rich in dialogue and inquiry. It’s also completely customized you. If you want to shift the focus, make edits, or pursue a different set of questions, then your private teacher will adjust the course accordingly.

  • learn how to sketch
  • build his hand-brain connection.

How It Works

  1. You pick a topic. It might be Plato, architecture, statistics, political structures of pre-modern India, ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics… Whatever.
  2. We find you a teacher who is often a college professor, and who builds the course around your interests.
  3. You meet once or twice per week for as long as you want, engaged in dialogue and inquiry.
  4. If you want to shift, we shift.
