Schoolhouse.world is a platform for free, peer-to-peer tutoring where anyone, anywhere can receive live help, build their skills, and pay it forward by becoming a tutor themselves. Schoolhouse.world’s goal is to connect the world through learning, by providing high-quality, free online tutoring in a variety of subjects. These online tutoring sessions are conducted in small-group sessions on a platform where learners can build confidence, find community, and regardless of their age, become a tutor themselves.
“Schoolhouse.world has really had an amazing impact on my confidence and growth when it comes to math. On this journey, I have also built some wonderful relationships with tutors who are super smart and very professional.”Carl, a virtual learner from the U.S.
All tutoring on Schoolhouse.world focuses on active learning that engages the learners. Tutors build community within their small group tutoring sessions through ice breakers (e.g. “two truths and a lie”), activities and practice problems, and lots of questions and conversation.
