About K12 STEM Homeschool Tutoring

K12 STEM Homeschool Tutoring (aka ‘Trini Homeschooling’) is a small centre for private tutoring that caters to the educational needs of: homeschoolers, public school students, university students and adults. We also host STEM/STEAM Workshops and short holiday themed activities for children or parent and child. ‘Trini Homeschooling’ has been in operation privately since 2015 however, it was officially registered as  a tutoring business as “K12 STEM Homeschool Tutoring” in 2018. We are located in Debe, South Trinidad, but from 2019 we will have online programs to allow any student to access classes from any part of the country.

Our name indicates that we mainly tutor from Kindergarten to Grade 12 levels, that is from Infants to Form 6. However, we do tutor at the university level as well, in Mathematics and Engineering Sciences. Our motto, “Teaching children the way they learn“, indicates that we use a very student- centred approach to learning and by using various teaching methods we ensure the success of each student. Thus, the STEM framework for teaching is used. (STEM is an acronym for “Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics”)

Currently, tutoring in the following subjects are offered:

  • SEA  – Mathematics, ELA and Creative Writing
  • Cambridge Primary Level – Mathematics and Science
  • CSEC / O-Level / IGCSE – Mathematics, Additional Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry,  (Labs by Request only)
  • University (UWI & UTT) – Mathematics and Physics/Engineering Science based.

Our class sizes range from a maximum of 5 students per class for the primary level to 10 students per class for the older students.

Our vision is to  not only ensure the success of our students in their exams, but to develop the analytical skills, critical thinking, problem solving and innovativeness needed in students for future careers.
