Our Mission

To develop an interest in mathematics, increase college readiness, and promote successful future careers for children from kindergarten to 12th grade who lack educational opportunities and resources.

Our Programs

a. On-site tutoring: Students from K to 12th grade attend weekly, two-hour math classes at local branches, most located within public libraries and community centers. Most volunteer tutors are college and high school students and engineers from local industries.
b. Online tutoring: Our organization has provided online one-on-one tutoring with students in remote areas where it can be difficult to access knowledgeable math tutors since 2018, and during the pandemic, we adopted a completely online tutoring schedule. Since Fall of 2022, we began resuming in-person tutoring sessions with online in parallel.
c. SAT Prep Camp: This is an intensive SAT preparation course held during summer break. Classes run 2 hours per day from Monday to Friday for 4 weeks in July.
d. College scholarships: We have awarded $30,000 in scholarships to 60 students annually before the pandemic to encourage our students to attend college for future career development. We deposit the scholarship awards into a 529 college fund designated for the student, and the money is released only when the student matriculates into a college.


523 students and 279 tutors participated in online and in-person classes in 2023. One of our largest sources of volunteers comes from the University of Texas at Dallas (UTD). With its student body of 9,100, we anticipate seeing more college volunteers from the school, many of whom will participate in our program to fulfill their requirements.

2023 Scholarship Banquet

Our 2023 annual scholarship banquet was a success! We were able to provide $500 scholarships to 56 of our qualified students.  Hosted by Johnny Foster, our master of ceremony, the banquet featured an invocation from Reverend Peter Hyun of New Song Church; a keynote address from Dr. Neil Matkin, President of Collin College; guest remarks from Myoung-Joon Kim, the Head of Consulate of the Republic of Korea in Dallas; testimonials from our alumni Soliana and Tiobstra Ayele who now attend Northwestern University; and presentation of awards from Dr. Gil Lee, professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at The University of Texas at Dallas and co-founder of IntelliChoice.
