Connect Tutors

Mission

Connect Tutors supports equitable access to college through free and remote application essay tutoring.

Program Description

Connect Tutors is a remote tutoring program providing high school students with free and high-quality college application essay support. We pair predominantly low-income students with our team of tutors, and equip them to build meaningful mentorship relationships that develop the writing skills and confidence of high school students. We believe a student's financial circumstances should play no role in their ability to access college writing support and tell their stories effectively.
