Interested in making a difference through tutoring?

Start a TutorChat Club at your high school!

WHAT IS IT?

A TutorChat club is an organization that offers BOTH training and opportunity for high school students to tutor and mentor their peers while earning community service hours.

The club will be running applications for volunteer tutors and those who get accepted as tutors/members will gain access to professional training and ongoing support in: 

  • Mentoring younger students

  • Helping their students develop strong life skills

  • Tutoring their students to get better grades

What Else Do Club Members Get?

Aside from getting professional training, those who qualify as tutors (now considered official members) will be personally matched to students so they can start tutoring online!

They'll also be invited to join peer accountability groups where they can uplevel their skillset and hone their leadership skills in a practical setting.

TutorChat's Mission

To EMPOWER high school students to transform K-12 education.

TutorChat gets involved by training and matching teen tutors with students who struggle academically.

 

Not only will tutors help their students raise their grades, but they'll also help them build solid confidence and real-life skills.

Our goal is to reach 1 million struggling students in the next 3 years and give them access to tutoring and coaching that has formerly been only available to high-income families.

Frequently asked questions

What subjects and grade levels will we tutor?


Our tutors teach Math and Language Arts to students in grade levels K to 12.




How do high school students qualify as tutors/members?


We from the main org will be the one to interview applicants and qualify them based on their academic performance. All you have to do is send them our way by getting the word out about this opportunity to fellow high school students.




Do you charge families a fee for getting tutoring services?


Yes, but families are only charged $67/month in exchange for unlimited tutoring services. This small fee helps us pay for overhead and also gives students an incentive to show up for tutoring. Free services generally have no value to the student and are skipped without consequences.




How do you conduct tutoring sessions?


For your own safety and your student's, all sessions will be done online via Zoom or Google Meets.




How does the main TutorChat organization get involved once clubs are started?


Once you've started a TutorChat club at your school, we do the heavy-lifting of onboarding parents and tutors, matching students and tutors, and providing the training. The role of club members is to present tutoring as an opportunity for fellow high school students to make a difference in their community, build in-demand skills, and earn community service hours.




Do we only get to tutor students from our own school?


No, you get to tutor kids from anywhere! We talk directly with parents and match their child with a tutor based on shared interests. If that tutor happens to be someone from your club, then expect us to get in touch!
