7 New Scholarships + a Permanent Spot on GlobalGiving!

Dear Friends,

Happy New Year! We're feeling like there's a lot to celebrate already in 2012. We're excited to share with you that thanks to your generous donations, we are able to provide 7 new students with tutoring scholarships for the upcoming semester. 

Danielle, one of our new students explains that, "A tutor will help me prepare for college and life after graduation because it will improve my studying habits...In my eyes, getting a tutor will not only help me now but also in my future." Her mother adds, "I am an unemployed parent. I have three other children and live off $1,000 monthly. I believe that all children deserve to have an opportunity to better their life, especially my daughter. Danielle is a great worker and takes pride in what she does."

Thank you for helping to make this possible. Your support means the world to us. If that wasn't enough, your donations also helped earn us a permanent spot on GlobalGiving! This means that thousands of donors around the world will now have the opportunity to learn about the Tutorpedia Foundation and join our ongoing effort. 

We will continue to send you updates on the students we've been able to match with tutors. I hope that you'll reach out to us with any questions or to get more involved with the Tutorpedia Foundation. We know that 2012 will be an exciting year, and we look forward to sharing our progress with you.

Thank you again for all that you do.

Sincerely,

Seth

4 Scholarships Funded: Meet two new students!

Dear Generous Donors,

Thanks to your contributions, we've raised enough money to fund 4 of our 10 remaining scholarship students. We are so grateful and humbled by your support. I want to take a minute to introduce you to two of the students that your donations will help fund. 

Vincent, who will now be able to meet with a tutor for the rest of the year, writes in his letter to Tutorpedia Foundation:

"I'm in forth grade and I need a tutor because I need to improve with my English writing and my test score. I really need a tutor, I'm in danger of failing forth grade. I really need one on one tutor in my writing and english. Thank you for Reading my note and allowing me to have a tutor."

Here's what Natalie, the foster mother of Ashley, a scholarship student, shared after a recent tutoring session:

"I just wanted to say thank you so much for all that you do… Ashley is having the best sessions ever with Katherine. She is just amazing and has made a connection with Ashley that hasn’t happened so far. To see the two of them at work is just remarkable…It’s just really something to behold…"

Again, I want to personally thank you for believing in this project. We are still hoping to raise the rest of the funds to provide scholarships to all of our applicants. We will keep you posted on our progress, and hope to be able to introduce you to more new students in the near future. Please share our project with friends, family, or others who might want to join our effort. Together, we can make sure that all of these deserving students have the opportunity to work with their own tutor. 

With gratitude,

Seth Linden
