What It Means To Be A Fearless Learner
June 29, 2017
Fear can be toxic. Fear inhibits us from being our best, from trying, from reaching our potential.
When it comes to learning, fear can be so detrimental for children, but also so prevalent. Kids don’t want to try and fail, for fear that failure would be a worse outcome than never trying at all.
That’s why at Explore Horizons, fearless learning is so important for us. Fearlessly tackling new and challenging problems, or overcoming problem areas, is what we infuse in our tutoring and enrichment centers. It’s what our tutors bring to the centers every day. And it’s why the kids who pass through our centers and succeed are truly Fearless Learners.
Fearless learners are happy to ask a question without being embarrassed. To admit when they don’t know all the answers, because if they did, they wouldn’t be learners at all.
They work well in groups, are happy to contribute, listen and change their opinions (when necessary) when their thinking is challenged. Or stick to their guns and convince others when they are right.
They are confident in what they know to be true, but also willing to jump into the unknown.
They have a gregarious spirit, a winning attitude.
Fearless learners know that being a fearless learner isn’t always easy.
At Explore Horizons, our incredible tutors will help you child become a confident, fearless learner. We love to work with the kids that come through our centers, and we love learning ourselves. And when your child becomes a Fearless Learner, they’ll love to learn with us too.
