This is an extremely interesting organization: Kidzmet. You all know how I rail and rant about “cookie cutter” public schools. I attended several of these kinds of schools, and was never happy in them. Typical schools and tutoring programs tend to be geared toward mass production. But children are not factory parts to be assembled from blueprints. Well, Kidzmet takes that whole idea of cookie-cutter education/tutoring and turns it on its head. This actually looks pretty neat!

Kidzmet compares itself to food– different people like different foods, and even if you loved one particular food, you’d want variety, right? Right! Kidzmet realizes that children need tutors and teachers who will draw out the child’s strengths and help the child overcome his particular weaknesses. As I read the information, it reminded me of what education USED to be in this country, a society built on apprenticeship. Kidzmet acts as the middle man to connect children with specifically-matched tutors and teachers who will help the child develop to his full potential. The idea behind Kidzmet comes from a marketing professional and mom, Jen Lilienstein. You can read about Jen and her vision on the Kidzmet About Us page.

If you’ve been looking for such an opportunity for your child or grandchild, give Kidzmet a look. There’s a free trial, and a nice summer enrichment scholarship drawing for $400, too.
