What is a
learning pod?
Learning pods are small, private groups of students who gather together in a shared location with an assigned lead educator. Students remain enrolled and participate in virtual instruction by their district schools. Students learning experience is supplemented by Podtique educators unaffiliated with the district. 

Podtique offers support that fits your needs in the following ways: 
  • Setting Up a Learning Pod
  • Selecting a Proper Pod Location
  • Agreeing on Safety Protocols and Guidance
  • Choosing the Right Educator for your Learning Pod
Our certified educators all receive training to achieve Learning Pod success. Every educator is fully vetted and must complete Podtique's extensive screening process to verify skills, knowledge and work history. 

This grants families the peace of mind that their students are receiving the best and safest experience.
