I am a teacher, farmer, speaker, author, and mom. I started Zoma in 2014 to provide homeschool enrichment classes and tutoring support for creative learners. Bringing together the knowledge of my experiences teaching in international and local schools and extensive research in learning and education, I created Zoma Creative! (previously Community Learning Centre).
Zoma Creative is a unique place for both homeschool and mainstream creative kids to experience inspiring, playful, joyful, and stress-free Project-Based Learning.
I enjoy spending time with my two amazing kids, working in the garden, teaching and spreading the love of creative learning!
“The moment you meet her you are drawn to her warm, magnetic personality, and grounding energy. She has inspired other teachers with her lecture series “The Creative Classroom”, and published unique lesson plans and books.” – Zoma Parent
Welcome to Zoma Creative!
Creativity, critical thinking, respect and community. These are the foundations of our vision at the Zoma Creative. We believe that learning should take place in a rich and nurturing community, and that kids contribute amazing energy towards a more thoughtful, caring and hopeful world.
Zoma Creative is a Tutoring/Learning Center. We act as a bridge between the classroom and home learning environment. Zoma Creative primarily serves Cowichan Valley by assisting with the educating children of families who value a “unschooling” education. We help to educate the whole person, nurturing the intellectual, physical and creative potential in each child.
ABOUT ZOMA CREATIVE
We were in the Valley Citizen!
We are a Classroom and tutoring centre designed for creative kids.
Homeschool students and public students alike have access to weekly classes ranging from cooking, art and theatre, to Montessori-style math and reading, academic courses with a visual, hands-on learning focus, and so much more!
Zoma Creative was created by teacher Zoë Clement after years of studying the very best aspects of education. Zoe has created a beautiful and grounded space that allows for student-centered, free-thinking, project-based learning… and… bunnies!
WHAT IS HOMESCHOOLING?
Community support for individualized learners!
Homeschooling can look like a lot of things in today’s world. What type of homeschoolers do we support? Everyone from “kitchen-table” learners looking for social enrichment to creative and outside-the-box learners who just are looking for a new type of classroom experience.
Zome Creative offers a variety of Homeschool Enrichment opportunities, from cooking and art to reading and math. Our homeschool students are a part of a larger Cowichan Valley homeschool community, rich with opportunities and mentors for modern-day learners. We are primarily a “tutoring” centre, but also offer Nature School, Cooking, Art Classes, Theatre for Life Skills and Project’s Club: mechanics, sewing, and Maker [STEM] Skills.
One-to-one tutoring is also available in all subject areas throughout the week.
The advantage of homeschooling today:
- Distance Learning courses for accreditation
- qualified teachers for individualized learning environments
- funding for homeschool courses, programs and opportunities
MYTHS about HOMESCHOOLING:
- it is difficult to transfer to public/private school or college/university
- parents must direct most or all of the learning
- public schools are not able to support the learner
- funding is not available
