What Makes Us Different
Of course, we are not the first online tutoring program. We also are not the first one to suggest we are unique. We are, however, the first that specifically targets foster youth.
Our longevity is proof of our commitment to our social mission. We are not a start-up that may or may not succeed. We will succeed! We have proven our value to the foster care community. We understand what it takes to bridge learning gaps experienced by youth in care. We have relationships with foster care agencies across the country as well as workforce investment boards that serve foster youth who have dropped out of school or aged out of the system.
Our instructors are trained and dedicated. Yes, we only hire experienced teachers to help our students. They all have college degrees, some with a master's or doctorate degree. Many have special education credentials. More importantly, each of our instructors receives additional training to work with our students. Our tutors know how to engage foster youth and provide the unique encouragement each child needs to succeed academically. Tutors are available for every learning style and subject matter ranging from Algebra to SAT prep.
Our tutoring program is intuitive and easy-to-use. We have partnered with an established e-learning company to build our platform which is completed. Tutors and students can communicate in real-time using a variety of tools from whiteboards to audio and video messaging. The student is able to upload homework assignments so the tutor can help the student instantly.
