“Thank you so much to POWAN for giving me an opportunity to help students with academics and impart my knowledge to them. I got inspired with volunteering as a tutor because of my younger sister’s
situation. It made me realize that many students may having a difficult time learning from online classes due to the pandemic, and I would like to extend my help as much as possible. Volunteering as a tutor at POWAN has been a fun and rewarding experience, and I am very grateful to be a part of this organization.

Where Our Tutors Come From

Meet Kevin Quach,
POWAN Tutor

Current undergrad student
University of California, Riverside

“Before joining POWAN in August 2020, I felt helpless. The pandemic was in full swing and the volunteer opportunities I had planned were gone. Joining POWAN as a tutor changed all that. I was able to develop valuable interpersonal skills and became more confident in my involvement with other extracurricular opportunities. I am grateful for the opportunity to empower my tutees to become more powerful learners while developing crucial skills that I will need in the future.”
