Meet The Happy House Tutoring Team from Delphi Academy of Los Angeles
October 12, 2023
Every week, these hotshots meet with at-risk students from across the Los Angeles area to help overcome their study troubles and get them flying in subjects such as math and reading.
Through Happy House, these students are applying the Good Choices Program’s precept to “Love and Help Children,” By helping the youth in their community they are ensuring a better future for all.
Good Choices of the Week!
September 22, 2023
This week the kids learned about “Loving and Helping Their Parents.” They were very excited to create a different kind of thank-you card! They had a blast and came up with these beautiful cards that they were proud to present!
Happy House Welcomes Delphi Academy!
September 13, 2023
Delphi Academy has started a Good Choices Club in the Lower School (grades 1 through 5) have been working hard in making Good Choices. Students were asked to give examples of when they have been applying the Good Choices lessons in their own life.
Responses to I have been following Good Choices and I feel Happier:
“I say please and thank you at all times. I listen and do all of my chores, I help my mom more often and nicer to my siblings” –M.G., 3rd grade
“Try to understand people more, I am taking better care of myself.” –O.M, 3rd grade
In response to How I set a Good Example:
“Shared my Lego with my sister. I stopped my baby sister from jumping on the bed. I feed my dogs to help out.” –I.D., 1st grade
Results from Happy House Tutoring 2023
July 1, 2023
Recently, Happy House tutored a group of students who were convinced that tutoring would be a waste of time. They had failed. They were stupid. End of story. Well…not quite.
The tutoring results tell a different story, and the kids are now smiling and eager to learn. The parents are happy too!
“My son was struggling with Math but since the tutoring he’s happy and has passed his year-end test with the highest score ever for him.”
“I re-classified, which means I’m no longer in the special-needs class.”
And here are two young adults who benefited from Happy House tutoring!
“WOW!” ” IT DOES WHAT?”
June 30, 2023
The kids had a blast learning what happens when you mix different things together – it’s called Chemistry!
“I never knew how much fun Chemistry is! I just thought it was a big fancy word.” –KA
“No way this is Chemistry, It’s cool!” –LS
Bringing in the Arts!
June 29, 2023
Many of our students aren’t normally able to enjoy the pleasure of creating art, so we brought in some projects to help them CREATE! Notice the intense look on many of their faces while painting and the proud look at the end of their project. It brings JOY to the heart! Great job all!
“This was really FUN! We don’t get to do art at school.” –KA
“I am so happy that we could have art today and want to say thank you because I was able to make my dad a present for Father’s Day!!” –MV
Good Choices Success from John Glenn High School!
June 3, 2023
Happy House congratulates sixty-two extraordinary students from John Glenn High School who are now making Good Choices in their lives. The Good Choices program is 21 real-world precepts to help people succeed in life, including setting a good example, not taking harmful drugs, treating others as you want to be treated, being worthy of trust, and many more.
“Thank you, Nancy and Miss Carol! Coming back from distanced learning, The Good Choices Program has really helped teach the students to be courteous with each other and to act properly within a group. Hygiene has also been a big issue – washing hands, brushing teeth, and this was also gently and effectively addressed. These are just a couple of the many wonderful outcomes from the Good Choices seminars. I could not be more pleased.” – Ms. Soto, John Glenn High School
“When I learned how to make good choices, I started to be better like happiness, taking care of myself. My life has become better when I did this, my grades got better and I’m happier than before.”
“Getting tutoring from the Happy House tutor has helped me improve my multiplications, divisions, and fractions! But especially how to tell time… Now when I want to check the time I can look at the clock and FINALLY read it!!!”
“Doing Good Choices has helped me look at things differently. I think that I have gotten better at seeing that some situations have more than one solution. For example if you see someone getting bullied or picked on instead of staying quiet you can ask the person why they are picking on the other person.I also know how to be a little more patient with people and treat other people that way you want to be treated because how would you like it if someone treated you badly or said something rude? Last few things I learned was how to take care of myself better like being drug free, eating better and brushing my teeth! I learned a LOT with this program because now I can stop and THINK about what could happen if I make a bad choice!”
