Charting impact

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

We hope to:
Provide reliable, quality free tutoring nation-wide
Receive donations and to coordinate with educational and charitable programs in underprivileged areas
Inspire today's youth in making impacts on their communities, on the nation, and on the world
Encourage creativity — for students to take pride in progress and in the authenticity of their work

We assess our student's capabilities during tutoring sessions and work with them on a one-to-one basis in order to maintain the best quality of education. We also coordinate our financial resources and programs to better the education and to encourage creativity and learning within our students.

Over the past half-year of 2020 since incorporation, we have tutored 800+ sessions and 150+ students each giving us positive feedback about our program. With our team of 60+ volunteer tutors, we are able to effectively communicate with the students and continue running our program in the future to reach even more students.

We have tutored 350+ students in 5500+ tutoring sessions and 6000+ hours of free tutoring. We have been featured on ABC Boston, CBS Boston, and FOX Boston for our mission to provide free tutoring to K-12 students.
