Digital learning support

Not only schools, but also most universities have closed their doors. Public life is as good as shut down. Many pupils are currently confronted with tasks and learning material for the next weeks. In case of difficulties and questions there is often no direct contact person, because the school and tutoring providers cannot take care of the pupils as usual. Therefore we connect motivated university students who want to get socially involved with pupils via video chat. Our concept is mainly based on the university students own initiative. First all university students have an aptitude interview with us and are therefore familiar with our values and behavioral guidelines.

We are convinced that in these times it should not be about money but about solidarity. Therefore all our students work on a voluntary basis. So we want to provide a virtual learning environment that is accessible to all and helps learners and their parents to cope better with the new situation. The students accompany several pupils for several weeks and support them with their schoolwork, exam preparation and comprehension questions.
