Tutoring Program At Populus Coworking
Tutoring sessions will begin on September 8th.
Workspace for you, tutoring for them
Going back to school is different this year. This is why Populus has partnered with the amazing team at TheirSpace to provide tutoring services for elementary through high school aged students in the Omaha area. During these uncertain times, we know it is difficult to work and support children with virtual learning. We are here to help you make it all happen.

$50 per student per session
This includes one 4-hour session for your child and a day pass to Populus coworking for you.
Chose one or multiple sessions
We have 8 seats per session. You may book a single session or multiple sessions in advance. We encourage parents to book sessions for the entire semester and lock in their spots.
4-hour tutor sessions
We provide two sessions each weekday. One from 8a to 12p and another from 1p to 5p.
Cleaning, masks, social distance
Masks will be required for students and tutors during the sessions. We will clean desks and work areas between sessions. Students will be socially distanced the entire session.
How do we help you and your student succeed?
We’ve partnered with TheirSpace to provide your students a small, safe, focused, tutoring environment. While students work on their school, parents can work in the Populus space enjoying all of our amenities like gigbit internet, local coffee, snacks, fitness center, and meeting rooms.
Facilitate Virtual Learning
Each room will have a vetted TheirSpace tutor facilitating virtual learning. The tutor will assist with assignments & e-learning technology and provide interactive tutoring customized to the students in the room.
Divide by age group
Based on enrollment, rooms will be split into groups of similarly aged students. Each room will practice social distancing with 6′ of space between each student with approximately 4-6 students per room.
Flexible hours or membership
Two 4-hour sessions will be available each day at 8a and 1p. You don’t have to stay for the entire 4-hour session. Purchase one session or lock in regular days for the entire semester. Sessions are $50 each per student.
Professional parent workspace
While your student(s) study, you may take advantage of the Populus coworking space and all of its amazing amenities. These include fast internet, coffee, snacks, and much more.
Our amazing partner TheirSpace
At Populus, we are all about creating the future of work. We knew that tutoring services would require a unique and special partner and we are excited to have TheirSpace onsite to run these tutoring programs. They will handle the coordination, training, and vetting of tutors so that you will have an amazing experience.

A Few Things We Are Not
These times are filled with new concepts and challenging situations. Our goal here, in partnership with TheirSpace, is to provide a flexible solution to help working parents with virtual learning students.
This is not a school
We should first clarify this is not a school. We do not provide a learning curriculum, and can’t replace a school. This is a supplemental tutoring service to help students with their school work.
This is not a daycare
We are not here to entertain. We do have structured programming that will provide breaks and help students stay focused. Kids are expected to study and bring school work.
Reserve Your Spot
Submit your information and we’ll sign up each person on a first come first serve basis. After you submit your info we will contact you with details, terms, conditions, and billing requirements. Sessions will begin on September 8th.
