Balance the Equation: Village Education Tutors

Village Education Tutors Foundation in the U.S. will develop a culturally relevant and virtual one-on-one mathematics instruction and coaching program geared towards African American and Latina students educated in underserved communities by providing whole child learner models that foster academic and mental health wellness. They will recruit highly qualified teachers, including bilingual teachers, and equip them with high-quality teaching material and online tools to create an equitable and safe space for students to develop into critical thinkers and lifelong learners through instruction tailored to meet the needs of each student. Teachers will also be trained to provide social and emotional support to help students cope with everyday challenges found within our U.S. economy such as economic insecurity, health care inequity and other social determinants of health.
