It all starts with Literacy.

“Real Talk”


One of our outstanding educators, Principal Luis Torres, recently shared the impact that TutorMate is making on his school, C.S. 55 in the Bronx:

Real talk:
Five years ago, I could not get volunteers, tutors, and mentors to donate their time to our school. Public transportation is a challenge and people are afraid to come to our neighborhood.

What I decided to do is partner with Innovations for Learning to develop what I call “virtual tutors and mentors.”

Executives volunteer from their offices to mentor and tutor our children via the internet. The executives call and connect through the computer with our children to read books with them. At the end of the school year the children get to meet their mentors at a celebration with the partners.
