425 Tutoring


A free, student led, & community-driven group tutoring service to keep your student on track.

Program Description

425 Tutoring is a student-run organization that connects high school volunteer tutors with elementary school students looking for tutoring. Based in Washington State, students and parents can sign up for group tutoring sessions on the website. We will then assign high school tutors to reach out and conduct recurring virtual tutoring sessions via Zoom or Google Meets.
