challenge thumbnail
Bay Area Tutoring Association is the San Francisco Bay Area’s only non-profit tutoring organization dedicated to the development of the tutoring profession for tutors of all ages. We believe tutoring is more than helping students improve their academic performance. It’s building relationships, sharing knowledge, empathy and bi-directional leadership development. If you’ve been a tutor, had a tutor, needed a tutor or know a tutor well, this challenge is for you! The Bay Area Tutoring Association will feature these amazing tutors, their businesses, stories of leadership, productive struggle (challenges), positive impact, and self-discovery in its newsletter and social media platforms (Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, Meetup, Pinterest, Twitter etc.)

We want those inner authentic stories, creative pictures and inspiring captions of all shapes and sizes. For this challenge, tell your tutoring story with a photo that connects readers to that story (e.g. a photo of you with your tutor or tutee, a photo of you studying).

As in the emerging tradition of ViralSpace, there are 5 winners who earn 30%, 20%, 10%, 10% and 10% of the prize pool. There may also be special prizes outside of the normal prize pool, depending on the story and impact. Bay Area Tutoring Association is also providing 1 year free Bay Area Tutoring Association membership to all contestants from the Bay Area. Everyone is guaranteed to win something for participating.

Accepting:

      photos
      videos

Reward:

      Prize Pool: $420 (up to $500)

Tips on what we're looking for:

      High-resolution photos and videos (up to 15 seconds)
      Featuring people
      Featuring tutoring companies or brands
      Genuine stories in captions
      Creativity!

"Powell Library at UCLA. Where we spent nights crying, yawning, chugging coffee...but it's where we also spent nights laughing, teaching, and learning. I love that my tutoring study group turned into a group of my best friends. I am so glad to have joined this tutoring group, because not only did I leave UCLA with a great GPA, but I also left with life-long friendships. This is my #TutorDiary"

"This was the first time I ever taught in front of a group of people. As you can tell, I was really nervous. What if I couldn't answer their questions? What if they didn't like me? What if they couldn't understand what I was explaining? All of those anxieties have subsided now of course. Now, I have developed the most meaningful mentor-mentee relationships as well as helped students achieve the grade that they wanted. Tutoring isn't for "dumb" students. Tutoring is for those who want to excel, and let me tell you that my students are STARS! #Tutor #Tutordiaries"

"He was my tutor my second year of college. I was struggling in LS4, the awful genetics class based on math and probability--my weakest subjects. Thanks to Ivan, I ended up getting an A in the class. Little did he know that I had a small crush, but it didn't matter because he was a fourth year and graduating that summer... Fast-forward two years, and we are in a happy, healthy relationship. This photo was from when he visited my hometown in Virginia. Sometimes, things are just made to happen. Well, this is my story of how my #tutor became my boyfriend! #TutorDiaries #ThanksUCLA"

"I recently graduated because of so much hard work and dedication not only I put into myself, but what my tutors put into me. Having a tutor has helped me understand things I never thought I’d be able to get, and gain confidence to ask questions. I would not have made it without my tutor, and as I go onto college I hope that I can find another tutor that will be with me every step of the way."

"I would not have been able to get through my educational career if it weren’t for all the mentors, advisors, and counselors in my life! All the guidance I received in and outside of school were all the reasons behind my success today. I was taught to be well-rounded, independent, and humble! I think this really reflected in my college career where I learned more about myself, what I wanted to become, and how my experiences brought me to where I am today. Hard work, dedication, and persistence are all major values that I practice and it’s brought me to graduate top my of class and holding leadership positions in my extracurriculars! Thank you to everyone that has provided me their mentorship and guidance, I would not have been the person I am without them!"

"English was not my first language so I struggled with reading and writing. My mom got me tutor in junior high because I wasn’t doing as well as the other kids. Everyday I would ask to go to the library so I could practice reading on my own. This small thing that everyone else around me was so easy for others but I struggled. 10 years later, I am so thankful my mom got me a tutor. My English Reading and writing skills improved and thrived in college and now in the workforce. My tutor changed my life and I will be forever grateful. Thank you Tammy! ✨❤️ Love, your favorite student"

"I got to meet some incredible mentors at the BASES Women in Entrepreneurship Summit at Stanford, including Elizabeth, who is still my mentor today. I meet with her once per quarter (at least) and she's been there through all of my major career decisions, switching my major sophomore year, taking risks by turning down safe but unfulfilling job offers, and so much more. Career decisions are so much easier with an incredible mentor. I'm so thankful to have met her."

"One of my most rewarding jobs in high school was working at the Muscular Dystrophy Assocation Camp. I was paired one on one with a camper and worked with them throughout the summer. I got to learn how to work with his unique needs and see his joy as he learned to swim, ride horses, make crafts, and so much more. Camp counseling is a fantastic way to grow your resume in high school while giving back and having a lot of fun!"

"My older brother is one of my biggest mentors. We both got our first jobs as math and reading tutors at Kumon. It was an incredible way to learn responsibility and get to work with kids -- something I absolutely love! Getting to watch elementary school kids grasp concepts like multiplication and watch them progress over the years is so rewarding. I grew close to several of my tutees and found joy in coming to work everyday. I'm thankful to my brother for introducing me to this job."

"Yan Wing Lei- “flying bird”. I never thought much of the meaning behind my name until recently, and I confidently believe that it fits me perfectly. Choosing to go to Montgomery is one of the best choices I have ever made. Montgomery is my nest, my home, the place where I have grown and made my start with. I used to be so very shy four years ago, never speaking a word, scared, just like a baby bird who was newly hatched. But with the unconditional love from everyone I’ve grown so much!!"
