4 students


At their local high school, these high achiever students were independently sought out often to provide tutoring to classmates who struggled to grasp content. Over lunch they decided to form a student-to-student tutoring service at $10 per session. They asked 10 of their achiever classmates to join them, receiving $7 per hour and $3 would go to the team for organizing the program, and managing the one-page web site. It was agreed each tutor would work provide service up to 8 hours a week. Within a few weeks the service exploded, with many more requests than available tutoring time. So they doubled there tutor roster, and increased their fees to $15 per session, $5 of which when to the organizers. Bam – instant success. Over a period of months their service expanded, with sessions being held at local libraries or coffee shops, and with great appeal by the school and district administration.
