Founded in 2013, Smart Kids, Inc. provides free 1:1 tutoring/mentoring, health and nutritional education, STEM, and other enrichment activities services to students that are failing one subject through the Tutor Me Program. We primarily serve undeserved students that are from low-to-moderate income (LMI) families.
The Tutor Me Programs provide students with free access to receive academic support to help them to understand subjects that they are failing. Over the years, we have successfully helped many students out academically through this program. Previously, we have partnered with and implemented this program at Urban Impact Center (St. Louis City - Lincoln University), University City, Hazelwood, and Jennings School Districts. In addition, we can not do this without our dedicated tutors from our partnerships with Saint Louis University, University Missouri of St. Louis, and Webster University.
As an educational nonprofit, we are dedicated to the success of the undeserved students that are need services first hand. One successful long term goals is to partner with more school districts to implement the Tutor Me Program each year.
For the 2019-2020 school, Smart Kids, Inc. will offer the "Parent Support Program". This program will offer parents/guardians ongoing support for their child's education, financial education, computer skills, resume builder, and job interview readiness.
In addition, we will be rolling out "Tutors in the Classroom" with our partnered universities. This program is a stepping stone to students that will get a first hand glance of real world teaching. Students interested in this program should be in the Education Field
