MANILA, PHILIPPINES — Traditional schools often organize annual Open House events for parents looking for the right environment for their children’s education. These activities also allow educators to highlight their accomplishments and plans to discerning parents.
Following this practice, online learning platform EdVenture recently hosted its first virtual Open House to give parents access to high-quality yet affordable education for their children.
EdVenture offered a 50% discount on its package subscriptions, including one-on-one, one-hour tutoring sessions to students in Kinder to Grade 10 in their subject of choice from the following: Reading, Math, Science, English, Filipino, and Araling Panlipunan.
The packages also provide access to free and exclusive learning materials and a student journal for progress monitoring. Parents can choose between eight and 16 sessions for P999 and P1799 a month, respectively.
In addition, the company has a “Book All You Can” Easter Special for single sessions until May 7, 2022. Participants may schedule their sessions until May 21, 2022 only.
“We understand the challenges that many parents face. Some students need individualized attention to help them learn better and build their confidence. Through EdVenture, parents are assured that their children are properly assisted and guided by competent teachers,” said Francis Simisim, 917Ventures’ Entrepreneur in Residence.
EdVenture’s Open House was held in partnership with Mommy Mundo, the leading and most active multi-platform parent resource and community in the country; model, TV host, and blogger Kelly Misa; and Teacher Sky of Sky Dance Academy.
It was attended by parents and key opinion leaders who wanted to learn more about EdVenture’s services and experience teaching demos from tutors of different grade levels. The 20-minute demo classes were handled by EdVenture’s top teachers via Zoom breakout sessions. They were divided into different grade levels and subjects.
Interested parents may still watch the Open House event via EdVenture and Mommy Mundo’s Facebook pages.
EdVenture was launched in May 2021. It is the newest EdTech start-up of 917Ventures, the country’s largest venture builder under digital solutions platform Globe. Since then, it has been serving students across different grade levels across the Philippines. Digital inclusion through education is among the many initiatives of Globe in its effort to contribute to the UN SDGs and turn action into impact.
The platform integrates technology into the teaching-learning process of students to achieve 21st-century quality education and equips parents with what they need to catalyze educational transformation. At the same time, it provides additional income to hundreds of Filipino teachers to help increase their quality of life.
