TCL 101

Welcome to our website! We invite you to learn more about what drives us:



Our Mission 
To support underserved secondary school students in achieving academic success by providing access to free, live, online tutoring and fostering an online academic community.


Who We Serve 
We target students in grades 6th through 12th who come from low-income households (defined as a family of four earning less than $35,000 annually) and reside in the Philadelphia, PA, area, but our services are open to all students across the country.


How We Help 
We recruit volunteers to tutor students in real-time through our customized chat platform.


Our Services 
Once a student registers and logs in, he can select from a list of subject areas. If there are tutors online for the subject of interest, the student can choose to chat with those available. We don't have pre-set curricula or time limits for tutoring sessions. Our tutors guide students through their homework questions.  


Additional Features 
In addition to our chat platform, students can use our Forum to post their questions and receive help from our user community. Our tutors also post Practice Problems (along with answers) on multiple topics to provide students with additional guidance. Be sure to check out our weekly Blog lessons and stay tuned, as we'll soon be launching our Tutor Availability Calendar!
