WHAT WE DO
Through virtual meetings, we connect middle and elementary school students to high schoolers in the Bay Area. One on one meetings between students provides a sense of companionship as many kids express feelings of isolation during this difficult time. So far, our group of high school students has worked with over 50 families and 7 schools in the Bay Area. In the meetings, the high school students can practice any challenging academic material with the younger students, or simply provide guidance and friendship through conversations.
Live Learning (Free Peer Tutors) was a godsend at the beginning of summer. The tutor from Marin Academy has given (my son) Will the confidence he needs to start online learning. Instead of worrying about schoolwork, he is excited about starting the 5th grade.
