Why should I become a Schoolhouse tutor?

There are plenty of reasons why you should become a Schoolhouse tutor!

For starters, it allows you to give back through volunteering and hosting sessions for other students who need help the most. You can teach students all around the world that need help with high-school math, SAT prep, and more, all while tracking the work you do as volunteering and service hours for college applications and more.

In addition, it allows you to build professional experience and connect with an international community of other volunteers spanning middle, high school, college, and beyond. By being a tutor, you'll develop strong leadership and organizational skills and become one in a network of thousands of passionate tutors and educators who will guide you and always have your back.

Becoming a peer tutor also allows you to learn by teaching! Studies have shown that teaching others is one of the best ways you can reinforce and apply what you have learned.

Furthermore, you'll be able to boost your college applications and track your volunteer hours. As you tutor, you'll build a Schoolhouse transcript that details your certifications and commitment. When applying to schools that we are partnered with such as MIT, UChicago, and Case Western, you can directly link this transcript to your application.

Expand your horizons and challenge your assumptions, all while nurturing a shared mission of connecting the world through learning!
