Tutoring Beyond Borders was founded in 2010 by Brenda Lee during her undergraduate career at the University of Waterloo. In 2012, TBB was recognized as a Canadian charitable organization.
TBB’s main purpose is to provide free tutoring to students from Grades 7 to 12 who seek assistance with their courses, may it be homework help, preparation for tests and exams, or even enriched learning.
This charity offers a unique type of free tutoring program: in-person tutoring lessons between one volunteer tutor and one student, delivered one-on-one in a quiet, public setting. These venues may include public libraries, community centres, or quiet cafés.
Not only does Tutoring Beyond Borders focus on the encouragement of education, it revolves around community service. As a result, the entire organization is volunteer-run, from its Board of Directors to its Tutors. This means that TBB offers other volunteer positions outside of being a tutor, ones that involve helping out in different departments and activities.
As a charitable organization, TBB’s main source of income is from donations and sponsorships. Starting from 2012, TBB has been offering scholarships to our best tutors.
Tutoring Beyond Borders hopes to make a difference by providing free tutoring services for students and by encouraging volunteerism throughout the community!
