Big Brainers is not just an online tutoring organization, but rather a movement initiated for students, proudly by students.
Big Brainers' instructors are located in various regions and time zones of the United States, including Texas, Pennsylvania, California, and many other states. However, we do not restrict where our students or volunteers can come from - we serve across many time zones including students in Europe!
Currently, Big Brainers is only conducting group lessons to enhance our reach with quality, affordable lessons to as many interested students as possible. However, we ensure that each student receives equal opportunities inside and outside of the lesson. Students are grouped by age or skill level, depending on the lesson subject.
After you sign up for Big Brainers' lessons, your personal information (name, age, email, phone number, etc.) will solely be used by Big Brainers to process your sign up (assign a time slot based on the grouping level) and contact you for further details, reminders, and announcements.
We make sure multiple times that every volunteer not only has the adequate knowledge to teach a subject but also the right teaching skills needed to be qualified to volunteer at Big Brainers. Because this initiative is completely student and volunteer-based, one of our first priorities is to ensure the students get to learn the way all students would want to!
Each lesson is on a weekly interval and is 1 hour long. You will receive a time slot along with your sign up confirmation. If this time slot doesn't work for you, please let us know as soon as possible so we can try our best to accommodate you in another time slot.
Currently, each lesson will have one group of 3 kids based on age or and skill level. We ensure that the lessons still offer value-for-money and quality.
All our instructors are very friendly and ensure that each student participates equally in each lesson. If a student isn't participating even after the instructor encourages them to do so, we will contact the parent(s) and let them know to encourage the student :)
Send us an email at email@example.com and we'll evaluate the student and allow him/her to take lessons accordingly.
The required donation per lesson is $5. However, you are welcome to donate more. Although 100% of the proceeds are donated to several different non-profit organizations, we make sure that all of them have active global efforts in making the world a better place.
Everyone is a lifelong learner and we encourage you to sign up if you would like to advance yourself in one of the topics we offer. Short answer: Yes!
The groups for the lessons will be based upon skill or age, depending on the subject.
