TUTORÍAS AL RESCATE
Es imposible exagerar los devastadores efectos de la pandemia de coronavirus. Una de los problemas más graves que enfrentamos actualmente es la suspensión de clases de nuestros hijos. En términos académicos, los que más sufren son los jóvenes estudiantes de familias de bajos ingresos que están entre los grados K y 8.
Porque somos conscientes de este problema, A Little Joy Initiative ha comenzado un programa de tutoría para ayudar a estos estudiantes.
Si usted es padre de un estudiante que está entre los grados K y 8, o es un estudiante de un hogar de bajos ingresos y necesita tutoría gratuita, regístrese a continuación.

Our Tutors and Tutees hail from all parts of the U.S.
We welcome you, no matter where you live, free of charge.
100+ Tutors and counting
Our Tutors are college students and professionals from Stanford, Berkeley, Columbia, Duke and other reputed institutions.
PERSONALIZED TUTOR MATCHING
Tutees are matched with Tutors based on a variety of criteria, such as Grade Level, Subject, and Availability.
Our Tutors are excited to help in all subjects, including Reading, Math, Science, Arts and Computer Science.
I am a recent graduate from Stanford University, where I studied physics. In the fall, I will begin a PhD in physics at Harvard University. I am passionate about making education more inclusive and accessible, particularly through online teaching.
I am an economics major at Stanford University, where I also work as a French Language Conversation Partner. In my free time, I enjoy playing chamber music with friends, going to the movie theater, and eating Korean food.
I am a current Master's in Data Science student at Columbia University. I'm originally from the Bay Area and did my undergrad at Berkeley. I've tutored throughout high school and college because I love teaching and working with kids. Tutoring truly brings me a lot of joy and personal fulfillment.
I am currently a freshman at Stanford. I am originally from Connecticut. On campus, I am involved in programs like Cardinal Free Clinics. In my free time, I enjoy cooking, watching Netflix, and folding origami!

What if I do not hear from you after signing up?
No problem! After you sign up using the Google form and agree to the Guidelines, we have your basic information with your primary email (and telephone number, if provided). We will work on matching you with a student who has the need for being tutored on the subject(s) you preferred, hopefully within the time zone similar to yours. Sometimes, we have more tutors than tutees in need (or vice versa). So, some waiting for a match is expected but you are already in the roster of A Little Joy Tutoring. Thank you!
How often is tutoring? How long are tutoring sessions?
Is there a built-in curriculum?
Generally, there should be one session of 60 minutes per week for each student. However, depending on the availability of the tutor, the tutee, and the tutee’s parent/guardian, more sessions and/or different time periods can be arranged between tutors and students’ parents.
A Little Joy Tutoring is a supplemental or remedial tutoring service. There is no built-in curriculum or “standard” textbook with specific instructional materials. Tutors are to help students with the materials they have from schools. Of course, other materials can be used in teaching if appropriate, relevant and needed.
