Empowering Lives and Bridging Borders.

For many Syrians, English is often a necessity for studying in a secondary education in the United States, Europe, or Turkey. Yet as Syrian education infrastructure crumbles, the chance to learn English for college-aged students is rapidly diminishing. With our tutoring program, Syrian students are matched with a one-on-one tutor who meets with them twice a week over Skype for a semester sessions. Our program has helped Syrians reach their target TOEFL and IELTS scores. Perhaps even more importantly, it has created lasting relationships between Syrian and American students, helping bridge cultural borders in pursuance of a more peaceful world.
