The EasyA Mentorship Programme.

The EasyA mentorship programme is designed to help make high-quality maths teaching more accessible for all students and equip them with the skills to succeed later in life. We do this by connecting maths mentees with maths mentors at the snap of a photo, so they can get help right away. We believe 1:1 help shouldn’t be reserved only for those who pay for it.

It's not only our mentees who benefit. Our mentors do too.

Teaching skills

Teaching skills

It’s not only our mentees who learn. By interacting with students from a variety of backgrounds, our mentors learn how to communicate effectively by adapting to each student’s learning style.

Helping at scale

Helping at scale

All mentoring occurs online, so mentors and mentees never need to travel to meet each other in person. This means mentors can spend more time teaching rather than travelling.

Giving back

Giving back

The pandemic has changed the traditional ecosystem of volunteering, and opportunities to help out have become more difficult to find. By using our first of its kind app to connect mentors with mentees, students are able to give back in a fun and safe environment.
