Thank you for your interest in getting involved with Turorpedia Foundation. Our mission is to make education more personal for under-resourced Bay Area middle and high school students through professional tutoring and targeted academic support.
Through TF’s personalized education program, students will:
We envision a world in which all students, regardless of socio-economic status, will graduate high school with a lifelong love of learning, and the necessary credentials, skills, and drive to succeed in higher education, and pursue careers of their choice.
Tutorpedia Foundation exists to complement the important work that our community partners are doing, and we are proud to partner with Bay Area schools and nonprofits to provide integrated, personalized academic support for their students.
TF’s program model is designed to integrate directly with partners to compliment and enhance teaching and services already being provided. TF communicates directly with teachers and education stakeholders to make the most out of 1-1 tutoring and project-based workshops. Our targeted academic support model is comprehensive – TF tutors work collaboratively with students, staff, teachers, and parents. In this way, we can develop and implement a customized program for each of our partners that will provide the best support not only to students, but also to our school and community partners as well.
We know that relationships matter more than anything else, and 1-1 instruction is the most effective way to learn. We also know that many schools and community organizations have aspirations for what they’re able to offer their students in terms of academic support, but have difficulty providing such support on their own due to staff or resource limitations. By partnering with Tutorpedia Foundation, schools and nonprofits are able to give students professional, personalized, and targeted academic support in ways they otherwise could not. Students who meet with our tutors not only improve in their grades and test scores, but also improve their class participation, attendance, homework completion, and motivation in school. Furthermore, we see 1-1 tutoring improving students’ self-efficacy and desire to become lifelong learners. Our tutors help students graduate high school with the credentials, skills, and drive to succeed in college and careers of their choice.
