Tutoring Program - Redefining the Odds

One of the major challenges every child faces, whether in the U.S. or Eastern Europe, is receiving the proper motivation, encouragement, and support to complete high school and move on to a higher level of education. Kids in Eastern Europe are at an exceptional disadvantage, however, because their entrance into an institution of higher learning is completely contingent upon their score on an entrance exam – and they only get one try.

An Allies volunteer and university professor realized that most of the students in the orphanages were not capable of scoring high enough to qualify for college without help. In the summer of 2015, with the help of this professor, Allies created an innovative program utilizing an online learning platform. Through this program, high school students are tutored in critical subjects weekly by a handful of professors in a virtual classroom setting.

The pilot program was launched during the 2015-2016 school year. Four students were regularly tutored in such subjects as Biology, Georgraphy, Math, Russian, History, Chemistry, Physics. Three of the students were 11th graders, who passed the entrance exam and entered universities. They have all done well and remain in constant contact with the lead professor and the volunteers.

The program has continued expanding in 2017. There are currently 13 students, three of which are 11th graders. The consistent academic support and encouragement is having a tremendous positive impact on the kids.
