Private “One-on-One” Class


SKU: N/A Category:


There is no better way to learn a skill than a Student/Teacher one-on-one class.  Now you can have that experience the same way a Native American elder taught someone in their tribe or how a grandfather taught a family member how to carve a Spring Snare.

Topics: We can conduct a One-on-One class with nearly every topic we teach (Survival 101 / Homesteading / Edible & Medicinal Plants / Bee Keeping….virtually any class we teach can be taught One-on-One).

Class Length: 1 to 7 days (You determine the class length.  Typically we can cover a full 6 day Survival 101 class in 3 to 4 days, depending on how fast you pickup the skills.

Class Dates and Times: Arranged at your convenience

 Agenda: Either our standard Survival 101 Class agenda or a set of custom topics that we work out with you to design a class of just what YOU want to learn.

 Cost: $200 per day for a One-on-One class

Additional People: If YOU decide to invite a family member or friend to take the class with you the cost is reduced to:

  • $150 per day per person (1-5 people)
  • $125 per day per person (6-8)
  • $100 per day per person 9 or more

Minimum/Maximum Class Size – One person minimum / your discretion as to the maximum you want to have at your class

Location: Your location* / Our Location / Wilderness area**

Who Takes Private Classes?native_american_storyteller
Private classes are typically taken by individuals or groups of friends that:
1. Are unable to attend a regularly scheduled class
2. An individual that prefers “one-on-one” training or a training class with only their friends or family
3. Have particular skills or groups of skills that they want to learn or concentrate on.

Who teaches the MNSI Private Classes?
The Private classes are personally taught by Tom Laskowski and set up for “1 person” at a rate of $200 per day.  If you choose to, you can have friends of your choosing attend the class at a rate of $150 per person per day.  There is a maximum number of 15 for a “Private Class” setting.   These classes are not open to the public.  No one will be attending the class that you did not invite.  This is YOUR class.

Private Class Agenda
The agenda for the class can either be our complete Survival Curriculum, specific parts of our complete Survival Curriculum,  or it could be a custom program based on the needs and desires of those taking the class.  If a custom agenda is selected we will discuss your objectives before an agenda is created.
What past Students have said about their Private Class experience

To help you evaluate how much time is needed for your Private Class here is the timeline for a recent Private Fire Making clas we did:

9 AM – 9:30 : Fire Theory

9:30-10:30 : One Match Fires (Workshop)

10:30 – 10:40 :Bathroom Break

10:40 – 11:00 : Flint & Steel Overview

11-12:00 : Flint $ Steel Workshop

12 – 1 : LUNCH

1 – 1:30: Bow Drill Theory

1:30-2:30: Carving your Bow Drill set

2:30 – 3:30: Making a fire with your Bow Drill   Note: The Bow Drill is the traditional way fire was made by rubbing 2 sticks together.

3:30 – 4:30 : Other ways to make matchless fires   (from soda cans, hand drills, ice, the desert jello, flashlights etc)

4:30 – 5 : Practice any of the techniques covered that day

5-6 : Dinner

Many private groups also like to end a Survival Private Class with our “Simulated Survival Situation” that allows them to put to practice what they learned with the availability of an instructor close by. This takes approximately 1/2 day (4-6 hours)

The location of the class can either be at your location or our location in suburban Cleveland, Ohio or in a wilderness area in Southern Ohio.
The only other expense you would incur for the class would be our travel expense in getting to the class if held at your location or in southern Ohio** at a rate of $10 per hour (driving time) and the actual round trip cost of fuel based on 11.8 mpg (our truck mpg pulling the classroom trailer) at the current gasoline rates at the time of the class.

The Private classes are scheduled at your convenience and at a time where I am not teaching or preparing for another class.

*Classes can also be taught in “non wilderness” area (such as your backyard)  Remember, you are learning the skills to survive and the location where you learn those skills is not critical.
