Aidan Finn and Sister pose in front of computer.

Aidan Finn '21 and his sister started an online tutoring service called Tutor Teens where high-schoolers across the city help students in grades K-8 study or keep them busy for their parents. They launched it over the Easter holiday and have gained national recognition for their innovative service to others. Their website link is https://www.tutorteens.com/

Aidan said, "We now have over 50 students being tutored by about 40 area teen tutors and we are continuing over the summer and into the fall. We are currently working with local schools to spread the word to families for summer tutoring."

The business fills a need as parents struggle to work from home while homeschooling their children. Filling the gap with this innovative program has led Tutor Teens to be recognized in Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, XQ America, and Local 12 News (links are below).
