In 1850, Horace Mann contended that education is the “great equalizer of the condition of men.” However, students facing pre-existing disadvantages, whose parents may not have the luxury of supporting them academically at home may miss opportunities to thrive. During this chaotic time, we would like to fill those gaps and alleviate the stress of parents and essential workers by supporting children’s education through free K-12 tutoring and college application counseling.
We are in a time of crisis and forced acclimation. As COVID-19 ravaged through the United States, an upward of 55.1 million K-12 students have been impacted by school closure, and 48 states have mandated or recommended against school re-opening this fall. School closures are posing a serious threat to students’ opportunities of growth and development. Under ‘normal’ conditions, research reveals that even during summer break students may lose math and reading skills. The impact of months of disrupted learning is uncertain, and overcoming this will be no easy feat.
We are here to mitigate these academic projections.
We understand the immense pressure and stress induced by this abrupt transition. We are here to support parents and empower students through learning.
