Give your students extra help, for free!
UPchieve is a free, online platform that can connect your students with live, certified tutors any time they need it. We’re currently focused on high school math tutoring, including: Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Precalculus, and Calculus. Students can use UPchieve for homework help, open-ended concept review, and exam prep (including some state-specific exams, like the Regents exam).
How it works
Students make a free account and choose a topic they need help with (e.g., “Algebra” or Calculus”)
We pair the student with a tutor who is certified in that topic as quickly as possible (usually in less than 5 minutes)
The student and the tutor collaborate in our virtual classroom via a whiteboard and text-based chat
About our tutors
UPchieve tutors are all volunteers. Most of them are college students or young professionals.
Every tutor undergoes a rigorous screening process and must pass certification quizzes in the topic(s) they want to tutor.
Our certification quizzes are designed in alignment with Common Core standards.
How to get access
Due to heavy demand, UPchieve’s platform will only be available to a select group of students referred by teachers, schools, or nonprofit partners during the 2019-2020 school year.
For school administrators:
We’re looking for 5 schools to partner with to run a free pilot this upcoming school year. Our ideal school partner:
is located on the east coast
is a Title 1 school or at least 50% of students are low-income (defined by eligibility for free or reduced price lunch)
is a high school or has at least 50 students who are age 13+
has a 1:1 program (preference for chromebooks)
If you meet most or all of the above criteria, please schedule a call with UPchieve’s Executive Director Aly to learn more
We’re looking for 10 high school math teachers to experiment with us on ways to integrate UPchieve into your curriculum
The only requirement is that at least 50% of the students at your school are low-income (defined by eligibility for free or reduced price lunch)
