An Education Network The core of Kids For Education is its education network. Each affiliated school makes the agreement to provide student-tutors making it possible to provide every user with free tutoring on their time. Not only does this network support our service, but it suppliments education with a new generation of teaching. Students teach students! Our network opens the door to multiple different teaching styles from different towns and schools to spread through their students, no longer making schools exclusive or different, but instead all working together for the common good. How We See It Kids For Education sees potential to grow towards influencing student learning outside of school; currently education is contained within schools. With Kids For Education learning can be accessed anywhere and not only within one's school system. Our vision is to see students from different states learning together and education flourishing as a result! What Is Changing Students teaching students is not a new idea, and tutoring online isn't either. What is new and at the heart of Kids For Education is providing student tutors from different school systems. This has many benfits, the largest being perspective. Our envisioned influence is such that the teachers teach the students, who then help teach other students with our service, these helped students now can further spread what they've learned in their school. This model spreads different styles of learning from school to school and grant new perspective to communities. Secondly, studies show that teaching knowledge is the most effective way of remembering and understanding what you've been taught. Thus tutors also enhance their learning by tutoring other peers.
