Educational Research and Metrics
Tutoria is a free online platform connecting seekers of knowledge services with volunteers eager to make a difference. Volunteers and clients can join our site at https://tutoria.io. They select their interests (English tutoring, US Citizenship, or legal aid) and availability. They then connect with one another via direct message.
Our community of volunteers and clients has grown tremendously. We have collected qualitative feedback about their experiences. We would like to make this process more rigorous, in order to build on our success and measure and report our impact to our stakeholders (donors, non-profit partners, etc). To do this, the consultant will be asked to:
1) Research, develop, or borrow a method of assessing actual or potential clients at onboarding, for our two programs (English and US citizenship).
2) Create a similar method at the end of the client's engagement with Tutoria.
3) Create metrics that capture the value-add of our program.
At the end of the engagement, the consultant will have tested this method on a pilot group of actual or potential clients in order to ready the process for production.
Why Tutoria?: There is a strong demand from immigrants for education and legal services across the United States, and especially here in NYC. There is also a large supply of volunteers offering to teach such classes. The bottleneck is that connecting immigrants and volunteers is done manually by non-profit staff, who do not have the capacity to provide matching/scheduling services. The consultants will be working closely with Tutoria's leadership. The approach developed by the consultants will serve as an operating model for permanent Tutoria staff, once on-boarded.

To connect seekers of knowledge services with volunteers eager to make a difference.
We’re an all-volunteer team inspired by the impact of free tutoring in our local communities. We’ve seen the challenges in meeting people who need our help or arranging where and when to meet. Our clients would say the same thing.
This led us to create Tutoria, an online platform connecting seekers of knowledge services with volunteers eager to make a difference.
