About Us

Formed in early 2014, Wonderkids is an online educational institution with ambition of changing our young pupils’ lives and providing our teachers with rewarding and meaningful teaching experiences.

We’re a comparatively small school. We have a faculty of under forty instructors and a student body of under four hundred, allowing us to maintain a personal connection with our staff and students and provide the support they need. Our main goal is to provide the best education we possibly can for our young students. As corny and cliche as it sounds, they truly are the future.

 We care about our teachers’ satisfaction as well as our students’ education, and as so strive to employ the most proficient, responsible, and passionate instructors we can find. We are dedicated to offering our teachers all the support they may need to be able to conduct lessons as effectively as possible.

 Our approach to language learning is to create an environment that facilitates supervised exploration of the language.

Students must learn in a way that they find value in and wouldn’t hesitate to transplant into real, everyday situations.

There’s a clear distinction when you speak to a student who has learned language from a book, and one who has learned to play and be creative with the language.

It’s a responsible teacher’s duty to identify the characteristics and needs of the student in order to develop and introduce the most effective materials, coursework and activities.
