In order to give students a chance to try out our online programs before the summer, we are offering the Lumos Friends Trial Workshop! These 1-day trial workshops will run from 10am - 2pm in June. Like our summer programs, we create a low-pressure, fun environment and a class size of four students so that every student gets opportunities for speaking and coaching from our instructors! Each workshop will have: group lessons, fun public speaking activities, and one-on-one private coaching sessions.
Since this workshop is shorter, students won’t have as much time to bond with their classmates; we are strongly encouraging students to sign up for the workshop with a friend — we've found that friends makes Lumos even more fun!
*SPECIAL OFFER* We’ve even put together a one-time promotion: each workshop participant can bring a friend for free! When you register, you’ll get a discount code in your confirmation email that you can give to a friend so they can sign up for free. *Limit 1 free friend per paid registration.

We do classes of 8 students with 2 instructors per class. We've found that, especially for online coaching, having a small class size is absolutely critical for making sure that every student gets to speak - even our shy or more reluctant students! The 4:1 student teacher ratio also means that our instructors really get to know each child's strengths and weaknesses and provide targeted coaching throughout the week.
Students will learn about different types of speeches - from argumentative, to informative, to impromptu!
Especially in public speaking, students have to learn that mistakes are OK, as long as they keep on going and give it their best shot!
Our curriculum is developed so learning happens through interactive and fun activities. For some students, that may mean games and activities that allow them to practice public speaking while having a blast. For others, that means group discussions on debate strategy and practice. Whatever a student’s level or interest, we are here to tailor our activities to their needs.
All our programs guarantee a 6:1 student teacher ratio, which means that your child will get lots of individualized coaching and attention.
Our instructors are some of the warmest, kindest people you’ll ever meet. We are all here because we love the challenge of helping every student find their unique voice.
