MINNESOTA STUDENT CREATES GENIUSPREP FREE TUTORING SERVICE

Tanisha Kota is going to be a Junior this year and attends Eastview High School in Apple Valley, Minnesota.  I was able to interview Tanisha yesterday on  "It Matters with Kelly Cordes." Click on the player below to listen to the interview.

FINDING KINDNESS IN THE HEARTS OF YOUTH

She came up with this great idea to offer FREE tutoring online to kids from Kindergarten through 5th grade wanting the extra help. She created Geniusprep.org. Young people from all over the US stepped up to the plate to tutor students for free.

Tanisha wanted to make sure that every child was still able to receive the help they needed with school, and feels that education is a powerful tool that can steer students in the right direction, to give them a bright future.

According to the website, the mission at Genius Prep is to provide high-quality tutoring services in a fun way.

Geniusprep Tutors goal is to make sure that students are having fun and enjoying the classes, while still learning new things. The team caters to each student's specific needs to ensure excellence.

The tutoring program is only offered during the summer months, but if you think your child needs extra help after the school year, make sure that you put geniusprep.org in your notes, on your fridge, and set up tutoring later in the year when you have a better picture of what your kids may want to participate in.

TUTORING OFFERED IN SUMMER MONTHS
