Tutorfly Inc.

Abstract

Tutorfly is a peer tutoring company that pairs High School Student Tutors with younger students in the same community in need of tutoring. Parents log on to tutorfly.org and can filter by subject, class, and teacher, in order to find a tutor that's just recently completed the same exact class as the parent's child. Our tutors double as mentors, so parents of younger students enjoy using our platform as well.
