I created SiSTEM in hopes that I could bring awareness to this immense disparity experienced by our girls, women and BIPOC; but also provide some sort of a solution. SiSTEM provides students with tutors who double as mentors to help build confidence within themselves and in their academics.

What makes SiSTEM different?

Select: We allow you to browse our database of vetted tutors and find the tutor that fits all your needs! If you would like some suggestions, please contact us and we would be happy to help you find the right fit.

Evaluate: During the first session, your tutor will begin by getting to know your student, assessing your student’s current needs, and determining goals for tutoring. The tutor will then work alongside the student to gauge how often the student will need tutoring moving forward. The best part is, if your first session does not go well, you are more than welcome to select another tutor! We are so confident in our tutors that if you still aren’t satisfied, let us know within 30 days of your first session and we will process a refund for any unused hours.

Tutor: Each tutoring session is 1-hour long and tailored to the student’s needs and learning style. We provide homework help, study support, exam preparation; or assist students in catching up, getting ahead, or focusing on a specific topic. Our goal is to create happy, confident, successful students. 92% of our tutors are teachers.

Support: Tutors provide session reports to ensure that you, your student, and the tutor are all on the same page. Additionally, we gauge each student’s academic progress through consistent evaluations. These evaluations are helpful to adapt sessions as needed and determine when students may be confident enough to conquer their classes on their own.
