Our Origin and Mission
As students who witnessed the loss of learning in online classes due to the pandemic, we recognized the need to close the learning gap. Online learning in a class setting has its challenges as teachers reduce their curriculums, and it becomes hard to gauge students' understanding.
Our solution was to help students stay academically engaged through tutoring in small class settings. We began helping students grades 3-8 stay academically engaged in Math and English by providing free online tutoring during the unprecedented pandemic. As schools are forced to continue online in the fall, we decided to extend our summer program for the remainder of the year.
However, we did not stop there. As we got more experienced, we noticed that students were still struggling and tutoring was crucial to help them catch up. Because of that, we're still here today.
Currently, our goal during the Fall and Spring semesters are to to help students stay on pace, reinforce concepts, and possibly even learn ahead. Our summers are dedicated to preparing students for their future school year and make sure they have a smooth-sailing year.
