OUR APPROACH

From 2009-2015, Tutorpedia Foundation matched K-12 students with exceptional tutors to provide 1:1 and small-group tutoring in academic, test prep, and enrichment subjects. In partnership with local schools and community organizations, our tutors supplemented low-income students’ classroom experiences, helping to improve their chances of graduating high school, succeeding in college, and finding careers of their choosing. Tutoring is student-centered and individualized, improving confidence, motivation, and grades, and test scores.

Moving forward, Tutorpedia Foundation will support local schools and community organizations with small grants, instead of direct service.
