To provide high-quality, personalized tutoring and related education services to underserved students.
Results: Between 2007 and 2009, more than 96% of private school students and 90% of public school students receiving SES tutoring improved their overall academic grades in their classes by at least one letter grade when they were working with a Tutorpedia tutor. In the past two years, every student with documented learning disabilities experienced an increase in their grades while they were working with a Tutorpedia Tutor. Of the 40 students that Tutorpedia tutored whose primary language was not English, 95% improved their grades as well. In a recent survey, 100% of Tutorpedia parents report that they are “satisfied” or “very satisfied” with their tutor’s expertise, teaching ability, and dependability, and 90% are “very satisfied” with Tutorpedia’s overall services. Teachers have also noted significant gains in student achievement through working with Tutorpedia.

The Tutorpedia Foundation is fantastic! Driven by the belief that the 1-to-1 model of learning is most effective, the Tutorpedia Foundation is hyper-efficient and effective in getting students extraordinary tutors. My involvement with and passion for Tutorpedia has only grown as I see the difference it makes in the lives of students who otherwise wouldn't be able to afford personal tutors. I especially love that Tutorpedia tutors take a comprehensive and thorough approach. They help students with their homework so they perform well in school, challenge the students beyond their coursework so that they develop a thirst for learning, and serve as mentors and role models so students see the possibilities that lay ahead if they excel in school. I highly recommend getting involved with and supporting Tutorpedia Foundation's critical work.
