FAQs

My child has already taken that class and really liked it, should I sign them up again? Will they learn any new things?

Yes! Students will be separated into groups according to grade and skill level. Students will be stretched and challenged according to experience. In addition, every Summer 2020 session incorporates new and unique material. Because we believe that mastering communication skills, like sports, require lots of practice, our courses are exercise focused. An athlete doesn’t master basketball in one season and then moves onto soccer because she has “taken that sport before.” In Rose Institute summer programs, your student will grow as communicators, every time.

How many students are in each class?

At Rose Institute we believe in personalized coaching and feedback. For online classes, we’ve so far maintained a 6-8 student to 1 teacher ratio.

Are all of the classes online?

For the safety and convenience of our students, we are currently running all classes on Zoom. This summer we have very limited in person offerings, none open to public registration at this time.

Do you do private tutoring?

We believe that communication skills are best practiced in groups. If you want private coaching, we recommend arranging a small group program. We have several of these personalized groups ongoing with great success! However, private tutoring can be arranged. Email programs@rosedebate.com for more information.

Can I sign up for more than one class/camp?

Yes! But only if you want to have a lot of fun ;).

How are the students grouped in your classes?

Student groups are decided primarily by age. For example, in a given class there will be a 4&5 grade, 6&7 group and then a 8+ group. Exceptions will be made depending on experience and skill.

We want to sign up for a class, but I have a scheduling conflict, what are my options?

If you are only going to miss one (maybe two) classes, sign up anyway, and talk to us about getting a class recording or the lesson material to keep up. If your schedule is incompatible with our offerings, you can always start your own program! Lastly, you can still sign up for an August class. Make sure you are on our mailing list by subscribing at rosedebate.com/summer and opting for the August mailing list.
