Building our community & expanding scholarships!

Happy Spring to all of our wonderful supporters!

Since our last project report, we've had several exciting developments here at Tutorpedia, which I’m eager to share with you. 

1.  I joined the team as the Tutorpedia Foundation's Operations Manager in February.  I will be working to expand our ability to serve underprivileged students through our scholarships and other programs. I am genuinely excited, enthralled, and inspired by the team, past accomplishments, and the vision for the future of the Tutorpedia Foundation. We already have a lot of interesting, innovative projects, tools, and services we plan to offer and implement to better serve our students and I am enthusiastic about contributing my ideas, education, and experience to our approach.

 2.  We graciously welcomed 150 of you for a wonderful evening at For the Love of Education at the 111 Minna Gallery in San Francisco. Our spring fundraiser event featured a lively, inspiring panel discussion about the best ways to personalize education featuring:

  • Alan Lowenthal, State Senator and Chair of Senate Education Committee
  • Linda Darling-Hammond, Charles E. Ducommun Professor, Stanford University School of Education
  • Ninive Calegari, Co-Founder and Executive Director, 826 Valencia,
  • Kyle Beckham, Teacher, Downtown High School, SFUSD

With your help, we were able to raise over $15,000 surrounding the event, which will help us fund future scholarships for deserving students.

3.  Two weeks ago, we participated in KQED's American Graduate event at Laney College in Oakland by tabling and contributing in the education town hall discussion about how to end the dropout crisis in Oakland.

4.  Thanks to your donations, we were able to fund half-year scholarships for the remainder of our foundation students this year. All of our applicants are now meeting with their tutors one or more times per week, and are making great progress.  

With so much going on at Tutorpedia, we are so grateful to have your support. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions, comments, ideas, or if you’re wondering about how to get more involved.  You can email me directly at diaris[at]tutorpediafoundation.org – I’d love to hear from you!

 

Sincerely,

Diaris Alexander

Operations Manager, Tutorpedia Foundation
