What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

In an educational system where the average number of students in a classroom is 23, the pace of the curriculum set by school districts is hardly perfect for every student. Often, students require personalized, one-on-one attention, which is hard to provide in a large classroom. There are also numerous other factors that affect a student’s ability to learn; from motivation to intellectual ability, these discrepancies challenge how students learn. Moreover, a plethora of education barriers that arise from one’s socioeconomic situation, whether it is due to a lack of finances or opportunities available. Furthermore, the outbreak of COVID-19 has forced many schools online, resulting in an even bigger gap between those who can and cannot afford basic educational services, such as tutoring. More than ever, resources are needed to educate students who do not have access to reliable and free educational help and instruction, but still have every right to an opportunity-rich education.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Teens Tutor Teens hopes to even their student: teacher ratio from 1:2 to 1:1. We want to apply for non-profit awards, maintain a google business, as well as improve our accreditation in order to increase sign-up from students. We want to also operate on all fronts this year an instagram, facebook, twitter, and linkedin account. We want 1,000 followers combined from these fronts. We also hope to get into some news publications, and promote our non-profit to invite more students. We also want to have 5+ chapters across America with 1 in GA and 1 in CA.

We are working with 2 qualified app developers for an iOS and Android to complete our apps to bring more student sign ups. Due to this, more students will sign up and be exposed to our social media and other offerings.

Gabriela Nguena Jones, the company’s CFO & Founder, has established the connections necessary to complete this. In fact, the changes described above are already occurring.

So far, TeensTutorTeens has received monetary and in-kind support from Walmart, Microsoft and Google, as well as received a partnership with Invictus Institute, another fellow nonprofit organization. With their aid, TeensTutorTeens was able to have tutors in over 5 different countries and have a total of 30 tutors worldwide. In addition, TeensTutorTeens has provided over 1000 hours of free online instruction in a plethora of subjects, ranging from math and science to ACT/SAT prep.
Furthermore, our TeensTutorTeens is not only dedicated to providing free tutoring and service for middle school and high school students around the world, but also contributes to their home city of Atlanta. TeensTutorTeens has raised funds to purchase 50 socks and other toiletries for the homeless and their supporting organizations across Atlanta. In addition, with the COVID-19 pandemic, TeensTutorTeens and their team of volunteer tutors helped raise $200+ to donate to food banks in Atlanta and help with the epidemic.
In the coming months, TeensTutorTeens is planning on launching a bookathon to promote literacy in young children, providing them with various incentives to bolster their love for reading and other educational exercises. Moreover, TeensTutorTeens will also be launching an app (free to download on IOS and Google Play) dedicated to connecting tutors with students, consequently reaching out to a broader audience and making it even easier to get free tutoring services. Lastly, we plan on expanding the influence of TeensTutorTeens even further with the establishment of chapters. With the recruitment of students within schools and giving them a close-knit organizational structure and community, we will be able to provide the support that tutors need to reach out in their communities and have an impact on parts of their environment that we may not be familiar with.
