Testimonials for seed scholars
“Eliya pre-recorded an engaging, fun and educational customised farm tour for our 1st and 2nd class.
We were trying to organise a summer trip for the children as schools were closed and I am so delighted that we found Seed Scholars. Eliya communicated directly with the teachers and was hugely flexible and ensured to fit in with both the technology that was being used and the content that the children had been learning about. Her tour brought us to the goats, hens, cows, the garden, the ice cream machine and also explained how to plant a seed. Throughout the tour, Eliya was enthusiastic and extremely engaging.
The children absolutely loved each video and displayed such excitement even through the screen!
I couldn’t recommend Seed Scholars enough and hope to see more of Eliya in the next school year.”

"Eliya is an absolute pleasure to deal with. She brings so much energy and positivity into the sessions. Her enthusiasm is infectious and the children warm to her immediately. Eliya listens closely to what you would like for the children from the session and is very flexible. We really enjoyed our session. Thank you from the Robins!"

-Ciara, Canalway ETNS 1st Class Teacher
"Eliya and all the team at Seed Scholars are truly fantastic. I am a junior infant teacher and Eliya provided us with videos for our virtual school tour. The videos and content are of a very high quality. They provided a much needed service to children during this very unusual time. If you haven’t checked out Seed Scholars yet you are missing out!!"
-Naomi, Junior Infants Teacher
"Eliya did such an amazing job engaging my third grade scholars via the Zoom platform during our distance learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic. On Earth Day, Eliya led us on an engaging tour of her garden and showed us a variety of plants, vegetables, and fruits. As she explained different topics, Eliya did a fantastic job weaving students’ inquiry questions (submitted prior to our Zoom session) into the conversation. My students felt so heard and validated whenever she mentioned their inquiry questions. One of my students shared how Eliya “looked like she wanted to be with us.” She went on to explain how Eliya used an expressive tone of voice and was smiling the whole time, emphasizing the fact that Eliya seemed to be so genuinely happy to be sharing her knowledge with us. I honestly couldn’t agree more. Her smile, her energy, and her validation of my students created such an enjoyable and engaging morning for my students, during a particularly difficult time for our world. Eliya’s love for the environment, gardening, and children really shines through her work. Thank you so much for creating such a meaningful experience for my scholars!"
