On a day of tutoring, students are offered a snack prior to delving into homework and brainy projects, with a volunteer tutor. We encourage curiosity and happily support and cheer on our aspiring geniuses. And, yes, we welcome students to use the space to study independently. We ask that students notify us, prior to visiting, as space is limited.
The Genius Story.
The Park City Institute modeled the The Mega Genius Supply Store & IQ HQ after Dave Eggers’ highly successful 826 Valencia in San Francisco, the Mega Genius Supply Store & IQ HQ pairs a quirky retail store with a tutoring center. Adult volunteers, who are neither their teacher nor parent, work with students offering individualized attention. Learn more about Dave Eggers and his successful and meaningful kid-inspired venture through his TED Talk:
"Finally! I'm getting real help with school." -C.M., student
