Our Mission

Our aim is to create a holistic tutoring experience that embraces students from a variety of backgrounds. We strive for students to feel safe and empowered in their tutoring sessions while acknowledging and celebrating differences in age, ability, color, creed, cultural background, ethnicity, gender identity or expression, national origin, race, religious affiliation or spiritual affinity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic class, political viewpoints, or veteran status.

“This tutor was excellent, I really liked her personality and she was so caring, understanding and helpful. I would definitely schedule another meeting with her. She provided me with a lot of helpful feedback and was encouraging, etc. There are not enough words to describe the great thing she did for me. ”
