The Challenge Is Great
Student achievement gaps are increasing without enough skilled teachers to keep up with the educational and individual needs of each student.
- 58% of Harris County 3rd graders are reading below grade level.
- Less than 9% of college students are pursuing degrees in education.
- There are currently more than 800 unfilled teaching positions in the Houston metro area .
The Opportunity Is Greater
iEducate recruits, trains, and coaches high school & college students to serve as tutors in underserved elementary school classrooms. Beyond driving academic growth for children through personalized instruction, we are cultivating future educators through direct classroom experience.
Words of Support
“My goal every day is to invest students in what they are learning, to find that passion that gives them the will power to succeed academically, regardless of where they come from, to help them reach their full potential.”
“[iEducate gives tutors] an opportunity to build relationships with our scholars, to help with learning loss from COVID in our schools…It also gives them that experience to see what teaching is about, and hopefully build a pipeline of future teachers”
“The most important position within any K-12 environment is the classroom teacher. As districts experience shortages in securing quality teachers for our region’s classrooms, IEducate’s value-add to public education around both tutoring, as well as teacher exposure & pipeline development, is welcomed support to ensure excellent outcomes for the students in Region 4.“
