What platform does Power Scholars tutor through?
All of our tutors are high school volunteers. It is a requirement that all of our tutors have a GPA of 3.5 or higher. Most of our tutors are straight-A students and some are even in IB, AP, and concurrent enrollment programs.
For regular and AP sessions, please visit the Sign Up section of our website and follow the instructions.
Call 855-836-3987 for technical support.
None of our sessions are recurring. You simply schedule any type of session you would like on whatever day you choose. You even review your tutor qualifications and pick your own tutor, so you have all the freedom when it comes to changing your tutor!

Is Power Scholars Online Tutoring a 501(c)(3) organization?
We will review your application and get back to you within 48 hours.
We are a student-led and staffed organization, so we solely recruit high school volunteers (unless you are granted an executive override, explained in the next FAQ).
If you are not in high school and would like to volunteer with us, you must email firstname.lastname@example.org for an executive override, or an executive "special permission" to be granted to you. Please keep in mind that these overrides are reviewed on a case by case basis.
All of our volunteers work with Power Scholars because they want to help the community! All of our positions are unpaid, but they do give you volunteer hours for school.
Our application process doesn't include seasons, meaning we don't have deadlines to apply for positions. We recruit volunteers year-round so our applications never close!
Our time commitment varies per position; however, we are very flexible when it comes to prior commitments. Our internship and volunteer programs are structured to accommodate high school students with busy schedules.
We are verified as a Volunteer/Community group with the IRS and have a valid EIN, however, we are not a 501c(3) organization as all of our services are free and we, therefore, do not require tax-exemption.
