Since LAUSD announced that they would be starting the 2020-2021 school year online, we have received a steady stream of requests for at-home tutors and teachers. Everyone feels the need to get some in-person instruction for their kids. I know a lot of the parents who are asking. And I trust that all of them will do everything they can to maintain a COVID-19 safe tutoring environment. And yet, every email gives me a knot in the pit of my stomach. Every call causes me angst.
I know that by providing at-home tutoring we can help people. And, in the process of helping people, we could bring in income that our nonprofit badly needs to keep afloat in this crazy time.
And, yet, no matter how much it hurts, I've replied "no" to each call and email. While we are in shut-down/semi-shut-down mode, EdBoost will not be providing at-home tutoring.
