A couple of months before our Boracay escapade and Tutapel’s Summer Workshops, my family and I have already spent a considerable amount of time hanging out at UP Diliman, mainly for Tutapel’s grueling Twenty-two 1 hour tutorial sessions.
Although things didn’t turn out the way we wanted them to be, we were still immensely thankful for a number of reasons:
1st: Tutapel became a confident Tagalog speaker in about three months since he started.
2nd: We found out that he had difficulty in comprehending classifications, and in turn, started addressing this issue more aggressively.
3rd: We also discovered that he was very good in sequencing and patterns which somehow signified his natural inclination toward Reading and Math.
4th: We got the chance to tour Tutapel around our alma mater while telling him stories about my college life and his Tita Nene’s as well as his Dada’s journey through Graduate School.
5th: We were able to have a hearty serving of Rodic’s signature Tapsilog dish to our hearts’ content. 🙂

Lastly, I discovered what looked like five note-worthy workshops regularly conducted inside the UP Diliman campus at certain times of the year.
Here are they:
UP COLLEGE OF EDUCATION
Offered every summer to 5 year olds to incoming Grade 3 kids, participants will be trained in Literacy, Numeracy, Science, Arts, Music & Movement sort of in the UPIS (UP Integrated School)-way since most UPIS teachers come from UP Educ.
KALINGA DAY CARE CENTER
Great for those looking for an affordable yet competitive summer program for preschool kids.
KIDS AT ART AT UP INTEGRATED SCHOOL
An impressive workshop done every summer with regular tutorials to boot, kids will be immersed in the beauty of drawing, painting, sculpture and crafts.
University of the Philippines Diliman
Geared toward kids (as young as 6) and adults alike, students will learn fundamentals in Drawing and Painting, Still Life, Portraiture, Landscape, Seascape.
