"Thank you so much Bonnie! You all have been ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. Thank you for still teaching our kids while we try to get some work done! We are very grateful for all of you."
"I wanted to use this opportunity to express my gratitude to The REALM Academy and the teachers who are supportive, kind, inspirational, and engaging. Gregory says to me that the best thing that happened during the quarantine is that we came across the REALM Creative Academy and signed him up for classes!"
"Tommy has a special place in Gregory's heart. His overall approach to artistic expression, communication with Gregory, and storytelling had such a great impact on Greg. Greg loves to have the freedom of creativity with gentle guidance from Tommy who makes him think, feel, and reflect rather than simply copy a picture. Not to mention that Greg was fascinated to meet a true professional artist!"
"Thank you so much for everything you do. We feel so cared for and are thankful for you and The REALM."
"Nathan, my family and I were all so impressed with your techniques as an instructor, that each one of us learned a whole lot about science and about facilitating classes virtually. You have a natural gift for connecting with kids, for inviting curiosity and play, and you made it look so seamless online. I know that it is not easy to do, and I can't say I have seen anybody ever do it better than you did for the kids this past week."
“Ryan, thank you for all you do. I feel so lucky to have you as Rohan and Nina’s math teacher. Their math skills have improved so much this year thanks to your dedication. Now that we are getting used to working via Zoom, I hope we can continue this through the summer!”
“I just want to thank you and tell you the teachers are awesome... I am so much more relaxed, and Noah is doing all his classes and doing a great job. Everyone there is amazing, and I love the classes. I feel Noah is getting a great education even while at home and I am so happy. Thank you both and thanks to all the amazing teachers and people at REALM for being so wonderful.”
“Hey Josh, I just want you to know that you are doing an insanely amazing job with Order in the Court. We send notes to our cousin in law school... he thinks you are a genius and has shared with everyone in his second year! He loved that they were learning "mens rea!" Did you go to law school? Keep it up! Zane loves it.”
“Josh, THANKS SO MUCH for making Leo’s week with your D&D class!! Geez, I never knew he could love anything more than Xbox, but you introduced him to something really cool! You are an incredible teacher and have a true gift of being able to connect with kids! Any future D&D classes that you have, Leo is a definite YES."
“Paul and I have spent no less than 30 minutes everyday counting our blessings that you guys transformed The REALM into a connected community learning experience for this very isolating time! Thank you!”
“All of the other parents and I marvel at how literally overnight you figured out how to make virtual education as engaging, challenging and creative as ever. It seems that The REALM's teaching style and hands-on curriculum is a natural fit for online learning. When I listen in to the Zoom classes I am blown away by the respectful dialogue and high-level exchange of ideas- both from the teachers and the students. These classes have been a lifeline for Dar – no siblings, no backyard - but when he is asked how he is doing I hear him saying school is as great as ever and he doesn't have time to get bored! I'm more grateful than ever that we chose The Realm."
“WOW. Nathan, your class today was EPIC. Educational and hilarious. I hope you recorded it- every kid should see that. Your science camp rocks, Thanks!”
