As a side job and passion, I tutored kids in a variety of subjects including English, US Social Studies, and Science. I was blessed to be able to teach exceptional kids where I was a truly bit mind-blown how smart these kids were at such a young age.
I was told this kid was homeschooled and the parents were seeking someone to teach their son middle school science. I did not realize their son was only 6 years old. It was quite a challenge to teach such a bright kid who had the intelligence way beyond his years yet still had the energetic playfulness that is common among his age.
This led to a lot of gamification and model building to best serve his needs of engagement in the topic.
