FAQs

Why choose Techfunic?

Techfunic’s small-group virtual tutoring in Tech, Math and Language is affordable, convenient and flexible, with no ongoing commitment required.

Our co-learning approach is social and interactive, encouraging high levels of engagement and cultivating a love for the subject vs. just solving problems or completing assignments.

Our programs help children to develop strong self-study habits that enable them to do their homework faster and get higher grades in STEM classes, which in turn increases their confidence and performance in all subjects. 

In what subject areas does Techfunic offer tutoring?

We specialize in small-group tutoring in three subject areas: Technology, Math, and Language. 

Our Tech Junior program is perfect for children in grades 3-6 who are looking to learn basic coding concepts. We teach MIT Scratch and Berkley Snap through our game-based, no-code platforms and experiential learning models.

Our Java / Python program for grades 7-12 introduces middle school and high school students to low-code game/app development and data mining through fun projects.

Our AP Computer Science course guides high school students through Harvard University’s curriculum, with the option to purchase certification at the end.

Our Math programs include MathFun to cultivate a love of math in younger children and MathEnrich to provide supplemental help or enrichment in Pre-Algebra, Algebra I/II, Geometry, Pre-Calc, and Calc A/B or B/C.

Our Language class is currently focused on Malayalam, with Hindi and Spanish coming soon.

Why is it important for a child to learn Tech/Coding? 

Technology is the future, and coding is the new literacy! STEM jobs pay in the top 3% across all industries, and children who learn to code in middle school and high school are 75% more likely to choose Computer Science degrees.

Who are your tutors?

Our tutors are handpicked from top-tier STEM universities in India, which produces some of the world’s best talent in Math and Technology. They go through a competitive, multi-round interview process to ensure that they are engaging and assess their ability to handle three children per class. Those selected go through our rigorous training program to become familiar with the U.S. educational system and proficient in the U.S. curriculum.
