Frog Tutoring will be utilizing a structured curriculum from CK-12.org Education Foundation and offering over 290 classes targeting different subjects and grades.

Classes will be held 1-3 times per week for a minimum of an hour utilizing Zoom, which allows for teacher and student communication, content and screen sharing facilitating an interactive learning experience for the students. Instructors of the online classes will be tutors employed by Frog Tutoring who have been carefully vetted, maintained a 3.5 grade point average and passed a background check. All tutors are volunteering their time to make sure no student is left behind. Families will receive an email after each online session from the tutor summarizing educational content allowing parents to know the concepts that are being covered.
“As leaders in the tutoring industry, I wanted us to play a role to ensure that all families can offer their children the ability to continue their education; this is something our families should not have to worry about. I reached out to our amazing tutors to see if they were willing to volunteer their time to teach pro bono classes and I was stunned that over 200 of our employees answered the call to service for our communities and country within 48 hours. I am proud of our tutors and the impact they will have in making a difference in children’s lives as we all face COVID-19,” said Roland Omene, CEO of Frog Tutoring,.
