Founded in 2020, the Mesh Project seeks to promote meaningful bonds and a profound comprehension of a variety of school subjects through one-on-one free online tutoring sessions with the goal of aiding immigrant children to settle into the Greater Boston Area. Our team is committed to making a difference, one session at a time.
Who We Are
Our team is comprised of high school students from Newton, Massachusetts that have a passion for learning, teaching, and social justice. Our tutors are skilled at planning thoughtful and productive sessions and thoroughly explaining core concepts.
