Gabby’s Good News: Teens Create Free Online Tutoring

In the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, high school senior Ajay Sachdev spent some time helping other students on an online tutoring site and even made some money doing it.

However, Ajay realized that not everyone can afford private lessons. So he collaborated with two classmates and  created a new and FREE tutoring website. Specifically designed to help those who were struggling with remote learning.

The tutoring service is called Smartly. It allows users to send in questions about their homework and get emailed responses from one of the site’s 25 volunteer tutors at no cost.

This website gained a huge response among remote learning students. And the best part? There’s no shortage of students who want to volunteer as tutors.

Now with the new school year about to begin again, Ajay and his partners hope to be able to serve many more students, especially those who will begin the year learning from home. (
