What is an Academic Coach?

Academic Coaches are volunteers on our platform that want to provide on-demand academic support to low-income high school students. The hours are highly flexible and there is no set schedule or time commitment. This opportunity is perfect for individuals with busy lives that still want to volunteer and make an impact.

How does it work?

UPchieve tutoring sessions are done within our web app. It takes place in a virtual classroom that pairs one student with one volunteer. The virtual classroom includes a whiteboard and text-based chat.

Who can be an Academic Coach?

Just about anyone! If you’re a current college student or college grad, chances are you can help students with at least one topic on our platform. To be an active coach on our platform, you just need to get certified in one topic! So if you’re good at algebra but not so much with calculus - no worries! You’ll still be able to help a lot of students.
