WHAT KUKUI HAS TO OFFER

Every student is unique with distinct strengths and weaknesses. To ensure every student gets the attention and support they need, we provide one-on-one tutors that can individualize your child's education. Studies show that lecture style teaching will cause many kids to slip through the cracks. Make sure your child gets all the support he/she needs.

Take your child's abilities to the next level by providing them with leadership opportunities. In this camp, students will learn about - Developing the 'Leader Mindset', Time Management & Goal-Setting, Communication, Strategy and Vision, Teamwork and Win-Win Outcomes, Train Yourself to be Proactive, Making Friends and Becoming an Influencer.

Want your child to learn to love writing? Our Creative Writing Camps guide students through the fundamentals of creating an original story. Each student starts by creating his/her own unique character, the world that character lives in and eventually, an entire story completely created from his/her imagination. Lessons include creation of conflict, dialogue, plot building, etc.

 If you're looking to improve your child's ability to present in front of groups, this is the course you've been looking for. Lessons, exercises and practice will help students learn vocal variety, control, projection and articulation in addition to organizational and critical thinking skills. Our goal is to give your student introductory skills to become a confident speaker.
