Chris Hopkins '15 is from Wellesley, Massachusetts and studies Economics and Engineering at Dartmouth College. As a result of his experiences tutoring both at the King's Academy in Jordan during his gap year as well as at a public school in Cambridge, he has seen the value of tutoring programs firsthand. After reflecting on these experiences, he wondered whether you could use the internet to run the same type of tutoring sessions online. Upon proving the concept to himself with tablets and some free software, he and the team launched Boost's first pilot last winter. After Boost's initial success, Chris and the rest of the Boost team are eager to bring our model to more classrooms. Get in touch with Chris at firstname.lastname@example.org.
