Happy Summer!

Thanks again for your continued support of our work with under-resourced Bay Area students. They say it takes a village to raise a child, and we're happy to have you as part of the Community of Learners raising our TF Scholars. Because of your generous support, congratulations are in order for TF Scholar Bianca S.!  Bianca recently enrolled at Mercy College, a private liberal arts college in Dobbs Ferry, NY! 

Bianca intends to obtain a BA in Social Work at Mercy College, so that, in her own words, she can “help people and make them happy.”

You may have met Bianca in San Francisco back in February at our event Education By Design. She was the brave student who shared her story with attendees and can be seen in the video recap of the night. Tutorpedia Foundation has worked with Bianca since 2011 to provide her with one-on-one tutoring to assist with school work and SAT preparation.

During this past year, one of our partners, Dr. Amy Morgenstern of Blue Star Admissions Consulting, donated her time to Tutorpedia Foundation to provide one-on-one counseling to Bianca to help her navigate the college application process. We are grateful to have volunteers in our community who compound the work we do with our TF Scholars. To read more about Dr. Morgenstern's work with Bianca, please visit our blog.

The entire Tutorpedia team is proud of Bianca's incredible resolve and remarkable accomplishments during this journey. We wish her the best of luck at Mercy College and beyond. 

Thank you again for your support of our mission. Your support allows us to provide personalized academic support and other educational services to students in our community who wouldn't otherwise be able to afford the extra help. We hope that with your continued support, we will be able to share more success stories as more of our students graduate high school and head to college. 

If you'd like to learn more about opportunities to get involved, please email us at info@tutorpediafoundation.org.
