About Us

OUR MISSION

We create enrichment classes for accelerated students in New Jersey. Each course will raise essential questions regarding the subject matter, and seek to discover answers and generate new questions by applying a mix of observation, experimentation, presentation and discussion. Curricula are designed to be informative and promote independent study, as well as acquiring real world skills such as presenting to and working together with one’s peers. The classroom environment is always fun, kind and positive.

LEAD INSTRUCTOR, MICHAEL KORN

Along with my full time career as a commodity futures-options broker and my devotion to teaching enrichment for accelerated learners on the weekends, I am a parent. We have two teenage boys, Markus and Zachery. Markus is majoring in physics and engineering and Zachery is a junior in high school majoring in Dungeons and Dragons and loves studying history. My wife, Elise, is a somatic therapist specializing in craniosacral therapy.

We place a premium on prompt and thorough replies from our sons’ teachers. This courtesy and professionalism is my priority being your child’s teacher.
