Joey’s Wings Foundation collaborates with Tutors Without Borders to provide free tutoring service by Zoom for children battling cancer. Tutors Without Borders is a student run organization designed to promote education throughout the world. It was founded in the summer of 2019, comprised of students from 8 high schools in Southern California. TWB tutors have deep passions for teaching and helping others in need. The organization has a COVID-19 private tutoring program for elementary to freshman students, tutoring a bunch of different subjects like English, math, science, art, music, and more. Each tutor is well equipped to teach their subjects and love to educate students. You can find out more about Tutors Without Borders here: https://sdtutorswithoutborders.weebly.com
