— Does your child need help with math or science? Are English and history homework getting you down? Does your teen need a boost to assist him with college prep tests?

Warren and Nia Stevens may be just the answer you are looking for. The couple will bring their business, Prodigy Private Instruction, LLC, to Idaho County later this spring.

Prodigy offers subject tutoring, homework help, assistance with summer school and homeschool, test preparation including ACT, SAT, GED, and CLEP, and music lessons on strings, voice and piano.

“We will also be starting a homeschool alternative program in this fall,” Warren explained.

Services are offered to all ages and academic needs, to people from kindergarten to college-age students.

Prodigy has several employees in the Boise area; in the Grangeville area, the couple will handle all the company’s needs to start with.

“We are accepting applications to expand our Idaho County team,” Warren said.

Free area consultations April 14-17

The Stevens will be in the Grangeville and Cottonwood areas for free family consultations April 14-17.

Both Warren and Nia attended the College of Idaho. He obtained a degree in international political economy, and she received her first two degrees in music and English. She also spent several more years studying education in chemistry, biology, physics and mathematics.

Warren grew up in Grangeville and said he and his wife wanted to move back here and start their family in the area.

“Right now, our focus is Grangeville,” he said. However, they hope to offer music lessons and after-school tutoring in a wider area, including Cottonwood, Kamiah, and Kooskia, in addition to Grangeville.

They will continue to run their business in the Boise area, but will be doing all their personal tutoring in Idaho County or via the Internet. Fees differ depending on the service. While he said they are still finalizing pricing for tutoring and music lessons in Idaho County, they know that part-time enrollment in the alternative school will begin at $160 per month.

“We work wherever the student is most comfortable,” he said. “We often go to students’ homes, but we also meet in public places like the student’s school, the local library, or even coffee shops.” The homeschool alternative will be located in Grangeville. Services are offered year round, though the alternative school will run nine months.

Warren said both he and Nia are excited to move to Grangeville.

“We want to be closer to family and get out of the city into the country. We prefer the pace of life and the environment,” he said. “We are hopeful that our skills will be an asset to the community, as there is not currently a tutoring company up here, and there are few options for homeschool parents in the area who feel out of their depth with certain subject areas.”
