Private “One-On-One” Classes




This is, and always has been, the ideal way to learn.

You have the opportunity to be taught the subject you want to learn in a one-on-one setting with Tom Laskowski the school’s founder.  The class moves at YOUR pace, faster if you pick up the skills quickly, a little slower if you need a little extra time to perfect the skill.  The entire time is dedicated to you.  The dates and times are arranged for your convenience and the location can either be up in Cleveland, Ohio or Tom will come to you and do the course at a location of your choosing, even at your own home.

Any of the topics that MNSI offers can be taught n a One-on-One basis, however the most popular are the Survival, Fire Making and Homesteading skills courses.  Tom has assisted several people applying for the Survival Reality TV shows to enhance their chances of being selected by the shows producers.

The cost of a One-on-One class is $250 per day.  If you would like a second person to join you their cost would be $100 per day.

Example of Private Class Options

We received a call from some in who wanted to know if we would do an Edible, Medicinal and Herb Class at their location outside of Ohio.
The answer is “Yes we can!”

Here are the options we gave them:
Option #1  They can drive up to us in Cleveland, Ohio and the cost of this “Private” One-on-One Survival Training Class would be the flat $250 for the day (9AM to 5PM).  I typically can cover the Survival 6 Day Class agenda in about 3-4 days with one or two people,.

Option #2  We could drive down to their location. Their cost for this class would be the standard $250 per day plus my actual cost of fuel to get me there and back (I drive a Chevy Suburban that gets 15 mpg). I use MapQuest to get the mileage and time to make the trip and use the gas prices of the day I travel and just calculate it out. Plus I charge $10 per hour for my Travel Time. In this option they save themselves the drive time and the wear and tear on their vehicle and they get the benefit of me showing them what plants are growing in THEIR backyard!

Option #3 Get 9 other people to take the class (that would make a total of 10) more people would be fine, but at least 10* are required for this option. In this case the price of $100 per person for the class would apply to everyone.

Weekdays are the best to set up a Private Class since most of our scheduled classes tend to be scheduled on weekends and  people tend to schedule Private Classes on weekends up to a year in advance, however take a look at the calendar on this website to get an idea of what days we do not have classes scheduled. Then give us a call so we can talk further (888-886-5592)
