From the instant Covid-19 stay-at-home orders began, Tannen, Bryce and Brianne began searching for a way to help the countless number of elementary age school children who were falling behind academically. Families were struggling to cope with remote learning while trying to work full-time, and others were struggling with being unfamiliar with the curriculum. They knew something had to be done.
In California, over 44% of families speak languages other than English at home, and in 61% both parents work full-time. Without outside help, the majority of kids were falling behind due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are committed to creating strength in our community with Tut-Tut.org - a non-profit organization that provides free tutoring for K-5th graders. Tut-Tut.org is a website that connects elementary age children with qualified high school tutors that have volunteered their time to help kids stay caught up on their education.
