"I watched as my students' motivation changed from getting a "good grade" to actually understanding the material. "
Since we have opened our study lounge doors for free, I have met numerous students who deeply care about their education. So much so, they come here instead of their local Starbucks so they can spend their time focused on work, not in a distracting environment. I love having them here and helping them when I can. However, due to the financing of a startup business, I am not able to do much more than help them with the occasional math problem in-between paid appointments, and I especially cannot afford to pay my tutors to help them with other subjects. This is something that has been weighing on my heart since the start of this company. I believe that ALL students deserve a chance to not only do well in school but to have someone invest enough time in their education that it inspires a love of learning.
Starting in January, we will be offering scholarships for students who need tutoring but can't afford it through our gofundme. Through this, we will be able to give students free and reduced tutoring; I can finally give students the time they deserve. The only qualifications are a financial need and a willingness to work hard.
PLEASE JOIN US IN PROVIDING STUDENTS THE GIFT OF A GOOD EDUCATION BY GIVING FINANCIALLY OR BY VOLUNTEERING YOUR TIME TO TUTOR. YOU CAN DONATE HERE OR CONTACT US AT INFO@STUDENTSOCIETY.COM IF YOU WOUD LIKE TO BECOME A VOLUNTEER TUTOR.

Thank you, thank you.
