I understand that these lessons are taught live and it’s imperative that my student is on time for class and behaves as if he/she is in a classroom.

There will be periods of on camera time as well as break out groups to better facilitate learning.

Create an independent research paper. Work with top researchers

The Lumiere Research Scholar Program helps students work one-on-one with a world-class scholar on an independent research project. At the end of the 12-week program, you’ll develop an independent research paper that you could use for university admissions or future studies. The program was founded by a Harvard & Oxford PhD who met as undergraduates at Harvard.
