He likes surfing, hockey, playing guitar, piano and drums... he speaks 3 languages English, Spanish and Chinese !! At his very young age he already has great accomplishments.

Their main goal through this store is to help parent build creative confidence in their kids, so they can have a unique way to build and think. Leonstores was built under the idea of offering parents, creative solutions and items that could help their kids think big and be creators and producers of their own products instated of being just consumers.
León, at Mati Talent Institute we are very proud of you !!!
Brothers enjoy spending time together!
One of our beautiful families, who currently lives in Canada, shared photos of their fun morning. Having access to an education program where you only need a short amount of time for instruction and you get high academic performance, allows you to enjoy more time for what you are passionate about, even play!
It's wonderful to see our students having fun while they learn!
So much to learn!
Every day is a new adventure and an opportunity to
No matter where you are!

No matter where you are, learning happens anywhere, everywhere!
This are Ciela and Leila, students of MATI TALENT INSTITUTE.
Both girls are currently enrolled in our English and Spanish programs. They also study Arabic and Chinese. Ciela loves doing horseback riding and enjoys art and Leila loves practicing ballet and she is learning how to read in different languages.
They live in California, but since their families travel a lot, homeschooling is working perfect for them!

"Natalia investigated the route and places she was the most interested in visiting, and with an atlas, she planned our trip.
We started in Amsterdam at Anne Frank's house, from there we went to Bremen and Schwerin where we saw a beautiful castle that was not touched by the war. We continue to Hamburg. We visited the museums where we could see the destruction of the city when the allies entered. Then we continued to Nuremberg where the war trials were carried out at the end of the war, the city has a beautiful historical center. We visited Roterburg, a town that was destroyed during the war, but rebuilt keeping the original features a few years later and is now a major tourist attraction in Germany. We continued to Munich where the central headquarters of the Nazi party were installed; from there we traveled to Berlin where we were fascinated with so much history and activities around the subject, such as walking through what is left of the Berlin Wall, visiting the east and west of the city, the Nazi archives museum and learning about people who now live in that city, we walked through the streets which one day they were full of Germans following Hitler and saw the bullets that are still in the columns of the buildings.
Natalia was impressed by being right there, in the place where that tragic moment in the history of the 20th century was written. Mother and daughter, we finished the trip in Paris, in the arc of triumph. We did the whole tour by train, along the tracks where one day war trains circulated, people fleeing from it, people arrested by the S.S. and thank God today they are used to move travelers, tourists, people who go to work in other states and countries. It was a wonderful cultural experience.
Here are some photos of Natalia enjoying her learning of history in person."
Cami is a young student from MATI who never ceases to surprise us. She is sensitive, responsible, dedicated, likes to share what she learns with classmates and has developed the ability to teach, Cami, we are very proud of your achievements!

Llegamos a MATI Home School, después de haber pasado situaciones difíciles con nuestro hijo en sistema escolarizado. Hasta cambio de residencia realizamos. Intentamos con el Centro del Talento en México, pero tampoco hubo una gran ayuda más allá de un diagnóstico. Buscamos diferentes plataformas y programas y nos dimos cuentas que algunos solo transferían el sistema tradicional a la computadora. No ha sido un proceso familiar sencillo, implicó reestructurar tiempo y vida de toda la familia, pero nos ha permitido en el proceso tener unión familiar, desarrollar mayor paciencia, prudencia, conocimiento. Hemos reído, hemos apostado lavar los platos en el intercambio de ideas y de información que va descubriendo nuestro hijo. Es difícil al inicio no cumplir los patrones normales esperados y formas de estudiar, pero el ver que en primera instancia mi hijo ha recuperado la seguridad, se entusiasma por seguir aprendiendo y en nuestro caso, ha madurado en algunas capacidades y aspectos de auto estudio, investigación y desarrollo de proyectos. Puede seleccionar contenidos que le gustan y enfrentarse a él mismo cuando algo se le complica, puede tomar el tiempo que requiera para avanzar. Puede acelerar hasta donde pueda y decida. Puede darse espacios de descanso y días intensos. Lo mejor es que en muchas de las ocasiones ni cuenta se da de que estudia. Es importante entender que se le acompaña de las actividades complementarias necesarias para darle una educación integral. Estar fuera del sistema nacional educativo, nos generó paz familiar. El bulling, no es algo normal, y no se tiene que soportar. Poder invertir el tiempo de nuestro hijo en tareas distintas a las de una escuela, nos lleva a desarrollar la creatividad, a descubrir el mundo y a buscar soluciones en vez de problemas. MATI, nos sigue apoyando a romper paradigmas y a que nuestros hijos crezcan en entornos seguros y con la convicción que sus diferencias son positivas y que pueden darse así mismos y al entorno algo mejor. No dejaremos como padres, nunca se preguntarnos si estamos en el mejor camino, pero cada día vemos la respuesta en la cara y desarrollo de nuestro hijo. Agradecemos el apoyo y la guía que nos dan, así como el que existan estas alternativas de estudio.
Me parece que MATI Homeschool es una excelente plataforma para los niños que por algún motivo no pueden asistir a la escuela tradicional, porque continúan con sus estudios de una manera divertida, entretenida además del contenido educativo que está muy completo para después poder si es que lo desean incorporarse a cualquier sistema de estudio. Además de que la atención es personalizada, el trato que obtienes es espectacular y te ayudan a ti como padre y a los niños en todo momento. Estoy muy contenta de que exista una opción como MATI.
Mati Talent Institute has changed our family for the best. As my son studies at home we don’t have to rush every day to take him to school and pick him up.My son is also happier now that in the traditional school system because the curriculum adjusts to his abilities (he is a fast learner and used to get bored in the traditional system). We also love the interactive lessons, specially the math section of Istation where my son has to play the role of a detective and stop the villains using his math skills. As my son doesn’t have to wait for the rest of the students of the class to learn something and we are not spending time on school transportation, he has time to research any topic of his interest, read books (we have finished reading four literary books in this school year), and even do some experiments in our home garden/kitchen. Finally, I would like to extend particularly warm thanks to Corina, our school advisor, for the very good work she has done and for the great attention she has always paid towards us.
We began Mati Homeschool in August of 2019 for our first grader and it's been one of the best decisions we've ever made! The activities are engaging, the digital library of online books provided is incredible, and our daughter's reading and math have improved a lot. One of my favorite parts is that, as parents, we're freed from most of the record-keeping since Mati takes care of monthly reports and a transcript at the end of the year. Looking forward to next year with Mati!
