What do our clients say?

“Our daughter has participated in after school classes, special events, and summer art camp through unchartered tutoring. We have been impressed by the high caliber of the teaching and the concepts that our daughter is learning. Our daughter looks forward to each and every class and has been inspired both in and out of class to experiment with her artistic creativity. We are looking forward to watching her talents grow through the incredible mentorship at Unchartered Tutoring.”

Cynthia Lawson Whitaker

“I’ve been so impressed with the quality of classes coming out of Unchartered Tutoring. The combination of art and science together are not ‘dumbed down’ for students yet they are explained in a way that even the youngest of students can understand. Her classes are fun and engaging and designed in a way to allow each student to follow their own lead. I look forward to future classes!

Melanie Rast Currier

“Thanks so much for taking our idea for a Back to School art project and bringing it to life for the Polaris Educational Foundation. We cannot be more delighted to see such fantastic options that integrate STEM, art and even drama in one program with our after school program after a great year and so much positive feedback last year!

But, what makes Unchartered Tutoring different?

Simply, our people.

Lead Teacher and Studio Assistant Elise is a creator with a heart. She teaches this Oobleck Squishy Science class to a socially distanced classroom from Zoom!  Some student antics come through and she is a delight to follow on this series. Do cover your entire table with newspaper.  When you are done, roll it up and throw it out. Because this slime is primarily corn starch and water, the paper helps dry out the slime and return it to powder.

Where did you get such a crazy idea?

Unchartered was founded quite by accident. We discovered a need for quality after school programing. Since we love science and art, thought we would share that love with the students in our community. One school quickly became two and within 6 months we were serving all of the disadvantaged students in our city through the Title 1 program.

We usually teach classes, in person, as far North as Franklin, NH and South as Lowell, MA in city schools, recreation programs, private and Montessori schools, but Covid-19 put a stop to all of that.

Concerned for our students we quickly pivoted to online classes, putting together kits that could be picked up in our downtown Manchester, NH studio. Then we began delivering the kits to students on buses and mailing kits to students who discovered us in New York, Virginia, Alabama and California.

We realized this online shift could help us reach students across the country and began running after school programs online while delivering the supplies via USPS. It was a success and we began reaching students we had never worked with before in locations we never thought of!

Help us continue that online reach, bringing art and science together to students across the United States by signing up for our summer camps and asking your school administrator to begin offering our after school programs in your district!
