As school districts adapted to the COVID-19 crisis, teachers were tasked with learning a new technological method of teaching that they knew nothing about. As a result, teachers were now focusing on implementing the new method and not ensuring its success. This caused a fundamental problem with the educational process and many students were left struggling.
STEP was created by high school students Jordan Katz and Hamzeh Hamdan who wanted to ensure that the delay in the education system does not affect students. Already among the top of their class, they reached out to others who proficiently understood science, mathematics, and English and offered them an opportunity to help their peers.
Given that our services are free, our tutors have decided to dedicate several hours every week. This testament of their strong character sets our tutors apart from other services; we do not only offer the most proficient high school tutors, but also the most willing.
Appointments for any of our services can be made through their respective sub-pages (under “Tutoring Options”).
