I offer customized tutoring sessions to K-12 students during the academic year. I design learning experiences based on each student’s needs.
A tutoring lesson will consist of a 30-45 min session with my horses. The session will focus on the key subject area selected by the student – and will include learning based on Texas state standards for the student’s grade level in that subject.
Each tutoring lesson will include follow-up homework exercises (to be done at home, without a horse) and an outline for the next lesson (should the student sign up for an additional lesson).
There is no horseback riding in the tutoring sessions. Students will be able to handle and interact with a gentle horse – and will watch demonstrations with horses in training. No horse experience is required.
The Horse Wise® curriculum has been developed in conjunction with Baylor University research standards on informal learning techniques for K-12 students.
Subjects include science (biology, chemistry, physics, environmental studies), mathematics (special emphasis on basic math skills, fractions, geometry, algebra and how to not panic at math word problems), and English language arts.
Lynn and the horses will bring these subjects to life in a way that is impossible to replicate in the classroom – while also maintaining Texas state learning standards in each study area.
In addition to specific classroom subjects, students will learn about horse stewardship, compassion for rescue animals and farm/environmental management.
Cost and other details
The first tutoring lesson is offered at the discounted price of $37.50. After that each individual tutoring lesson is $60. Monthly subscriptions are available starting at $200/mo (4 sessions per month). Custom group lessons are available on a limited basis – please email for more information.
Length of time
Tutoring lessons are 30-45 min in duration (depending on student age and depth of subject matter). Each lesson includes follow-up homework exercises (via video) and an outline for the next lesson.
I offer tutoring sessions on Wednesdays and Saturdays. To discuss a specific date, please contact Lynn.
Our facility is located in Driftwood, TX. It is a private farm, with a quiet, peaceful environment for learning.
For safety, we ask that all students wear shoes that are covered (no sandals or flip-flops) and that can handle getting dusty or dirty (horse farms are full of dust, dirt and horse manure). Students’ drivers must be available during the lesson (we don’t allow students to be dropped off alone). The tutoring lesson paperwork (releases, list of farm rules, etc.) must be signed and returned to Horse Wise prior to the field trip date.
