Build a Learning Pod in 3 Steps:

1. Form your own pod with neighbors or classmates, or sign up to find pod mates.

2. Amy, our virtual assistant will ask you a few questions and recommend providers that match your pod’s schedule, location and interests. All tutors and sitters are vetted and hand-selected by the Apiari team.

3. Book a phone interview or trial session to see if the provider is a good fit for you and your pod. You can make a recurring booking to make sure your pod will have the same provider each week.

Health and Safety: We recommend each pod to consist of no more than 3 families. Each family will be asked to make these COVID community commitments. We also encourage families to discuss any additional safety measures that all pod members and pod leaders should follow.


Pricing:  Learning pods range from $10.5/hour to $13.5/hour per child depending on the size of the pod and the provider. Each provider’s standard hourly rates for private sessions are listed at the top of their profile. For pods, simply add $5/hour for each additional child. We match families looking for pod mates free of charge.
