  • Learning Pods

    The Bosque Learning Center (BLC) is supporting independent learning pods in the Albuquerque area for non-Bosque students. Learning Pods are defined as small groups of similar students who meet for instruction and cooperative learning in a home-school setting. These are primarily at the elementary level for academically engaged students whose parents seek a more intensive yet nurturing learning environment during these times of online learning and isolation.

    There are currently two learning pods: one for full-day third graders and one part-time program for enrichment. The BLC provides instructors for these students, usually in a parent’s home. Tutors are selected for the pod-based on areas of instruction requested by the parents. The pods are very flexible and can be designed to meet multiple times a week, from two hours to five hours a day.
"When we didn’t know how to get our elementary-aged daughter the enrichment she needed in a virtual learning environment, the Bosque Learning Center created many creative, hands-on, and challenging opportunities for her."–Kristin, parent
"Our kids have benefited tremendously from the Bosque Learning Center. Their personalized learning plans have helped our kids be successful academically. The Bosque Learning Center tutors are paragons of professionalism—knowledgeable, effective, empathic, supportive, and collaborative. Our family is grateful for the Bosque Learning Center."–Laurie and David, parents
My 4th grade son, who is in the 98th percentile for his age in math, has worked with his enrichment coach for over a year. We sought a tutor who would be able to challenge him yet have fun with math. His coach prods, pushes, and laughs with my son; when their weekly session ends, my boy is energized and happy.”–Peter, parent

Bosque Learning Center FAQs

List of 4 frequently asked questions.

  • When are the tutoring services available?

    Unless otherwise agreed upon, each session is approximately 40 minutes in length. Tutoring Specialists typically work with middle school students outside of the regular school day. This includes Tuesday mornings before the start of school before 9:00 am and after school from 3:20 to 5:20 pm Below is the schedule of most common slots available for tutoring outside of the school day. For those middle school students participating in sports, an allowance will be made for arriving late for practices or attending tutoring after practice. Individual tutoring sessions will be rescheduled during any team competitions or games. Ordinarily, upper school students who participate use free periods in their schedules for tutoring sessions.

    Tutoring Slots Available Outside of the School Day:
    Slots Monday–Friday
    7:40–8:20 am
    8:20–9:00 am

    The BLC also is open during the summer break and tutor specialists set up a mutually agreed-upon schedule of meetings with each student.
  • How much does it cost?

    Tutoring:
    • Bosque School Students - $40 per individual session and $30 for groups of two.
    • Non-Bosque School Students - $50 per session
    Learning Pods:
    • The cost for participating in pods is determined by the number of weekly sessions and the number of students participating. Please contact Clint Montgomery for information.

    Once parents decide to participate in the BLC, they sign a contract for one semester at a time. Payments are set up through Bosque School's Business Office. Parents are billed for missed sessions only when the tutor does not have a 2-hour notice.
  • Who are the tutor specialists?

    The tutor specialists are recruited through the Learning Specialists Department. They submit work history records, and they participate in a full background check through the Bosque Business Office. These individuals have a variety of instructional experiences, and many are at the Master's level of education. The tutor specialists will be part-time employees of Bosque School so that they are expected to become familiar with the school’s culture, curriculum, and instructional expectations. A list of these tutor specialists along with a brief bio is available on the Bosque School website or by contacting Clint Montgomery. Typically, they will meet with students in the library first and then move to one of several quiet designated work areas provided through the Learning Specialist Department.
  • How do the tutors communicate?

    One of the hallmarks of a strong tutoring relationship is frequent and clear communication between the tutor specialist and the student’s teachers and parents.  Once a student is signed up for tutoring, the tutor specialist will contact both the parents and the adviser to develop specific goals for the work sessions and a written Tutoring Plan is developed. This Tutoring Plan is shared with the student, adviser, parents, and the student's teachers. Parents and advisers are encouraged to provide feedback to the tutor about necessary changes in the academic focus for future sessions. The tutors also communicate frequently with parents and teachers through email, texting, and phone calls to fine-tune student needs. In many cases, a student assignment tracker is tailored for the individual student to ensure that they don't fall behind, especially during this time of online instruction.
