CollegePrep is a nonprofit marketplace where students connect with mentors/tutors and communities create high caliber test preparation and broader education content through a crowdsourced approach. Demand for private tutoring is on the rise - in the US alone, it stands as a $7 Billion industry and growing annually by nearly 7% (Business Wire). For-profit players, such as Varsity Tutors, help students but at an exorbitant cost, putting those who cannot afford at a major disadvantage. Moreover, rural and under-resourced school districts often provide unsatisfactory resources to their constituents - according to the ASCA, the average student to guidance counselor ratio is 482:1 nationwide while the recommended amount is 250:1. CollegePrep increases the accessibility of private tutoring and mentoring to improve student learning outcomes, especially among disadvantaged and underprivileged communities.
