Passing Knowledge Along

Hi! I’m Jeri, and I am about to start in my first year of high school. Early on in this pandemic, I began Zoom tutoring a boy in first grade. I found it really rewarding, and it was a fun learning experience for the both of us. I was having a conversation with my parents, and I realized that there are lots of kids who cannot get a private tutor. There are also lots of kids who want to be private tutors, but are not in a position where that is easy. 

This free site will allow students to learn from a private tutor, and on the other side of things, be a private tutor. I will match a learner with a tutor, and they will set up the timing and frequency of the Zoom meetings themselves. Tutoring not only helps the learner, but it helps the tutor reinforce the subject for themselves as well. Because all the learning happens virtually I may end up matching a tutor with a learner across the country or even in a different country!

We are only doing online tutoring to make sure that everyone can be safe, and so that we can have people reaching across countries to lend information. Although you will schedule a Zoom time with your tutor or learner, I suggest about an hour, with added time if the learner needs more help.

We are hoping to have a teacher representative from every school we work in. Our site will help take some of the strain off of teachers, so they can have some free time as well.

 In the early days of America, there was often a single room school house hosting all students in the area. While the teacher was teaching one level, the older students would help the younger understand the material. This is that spirit I am trying to recreate.

LEARNERS

Hi, thanks for finding us! It is great that you are interested in getting some extra help with your school work. Our dream is that eventually you will be able to teach the subject you are struggling in.

To become a learner, we need you to get a recommendation from a teacher at your school. We want your teachers to know that you are getting help.

Please email us at learners@1room.school with your name, your school, your current grade level, the name and email of your teacher and the subjects in which you would like help.

TUTORS

Hi, I’m glad you are showing interest in being one of our tutors. It can be very rewarding to see someone you are helping bloom as a student. Even before the pandemic, kids had obstacles to learning that have been accentuated by the current environment.

To join our team we need you to get a recommendation from a teacher at your school.  We want to ensure that our tutors know the subject matter and that a teacher believes you are a good student who will be able to handle the extra workload.

Please email us at tutors@1room.school with your name, your school, your current grade level, the name and email of your teacher and the subjects in which you would like to tutor.

TEACHERS

Thank you for visiting 1room.school. Being a part of our little community would give you, as a teacher the opportunity to approve both learners and tutors, making sure that they are both real people, and the right kids for the role. Being a teacher rep from a school would also mean suggesting students for being tutors, and suggesting kids who need a little bit of help.

If you would like to be part of our team please email us at teachers@1room.school with the name of your school. It would be wonderful if you could tell us if you wanted to be a representative for your school as well.

I currently have Tutors in the following countries
