The Great Adventure Lab offers private science and programming classes as well as math and science tutoring

Yes, we offer private classes & science and programming tutoring for kids in metro DC.

If your school does not offer our after school science and engineering programs, invite us! Then, while you’re waiting for your school to fit us into their schedule, sign up for a private class.

We regularly form private classes on request. They can take place evenings or weekends, or during the school day. (We have plenty of experience working with homeschoolers!) All you have to do is choose which class and what day/ time. If you’d like your child to have private tutoring with one of our instructors, please contact us! 


For private, one-on-one science tutoring: prices start at $65 an hour in your home, depending on instructor and topic. We can show your child how to program with Lego’s WeDo or Mindstorm programming languages, or give your child a jumpstart in Scratch programming! We can help your child with his or her regular science or math classes. Price includes use of The Great Adventure Lab robotics kits if applicable.


Here’s what we need to form a private class.

1. A minimum of five children (including your child).

2. A suitable meeting space (a dining room is fine; however we cannot have food or drink near our equipment).

3. A meeting space in our service area within a 20-minute drive of Wheaton, Md., or within a 20-minute drive of your assigned instructor, as calculated by Google Maps. Distance fees apply for locations beyond that service area. We have instructors in many areas; please contact us for more info.

4. A suitable meeting time. Our instructors and equipment are fully booked between 2:30 and 5:30pm on weekdays during the school year. We can offer a class in your home before or after this time slot. And yes, we also offer private classes on weekends!

5. Attendees must register via our online registration page. (We set it up, customers can pay by credit/ debit card or PayPal).

6. Cost is $150 per student for 7, one-hour meetings plus materials fee (if required) and distance fee (for locations outside our service area).

Yes, girls love our classes, too!! Some customers like to form all-girls classes!
