Mission: 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.
Target demographics: Students in low-income school districts, grades K-12.
Programs: Independent scholarships for personalized tutoring, Workshops, Programs at qualifying schools and Supplemental Educational Service (SES) tutoring
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.
