Academic Advancements has launched a new initiative to support the education of underprivileged students in China.
Led by Shaurya Baruah '24, Justin Wang '25, and Coco Zhou '26, our goal is to provide these underprivileged students with the necessary resources & tutor them to have a fulfilling academic experience. To achieve this goal, we will be conducting online lessons from the United States.
Local students in China participating in our lessons
Our team of tutors will work with these 3rd and 4th grade students in groups of about 40-60 students to teach fun and interactive lessons that are tailored to their unique needs and learning styles. These group sessions will be conducted weekly over 8 weeks, and will be focused on educating them about English. These students are at a very beginner level and they struggle to understand English.
Our AAT China Initiative Team planning and preparing for the education of students in China
The key components of our initiative include:
Offering a curriculum that is designed to be engaging and interactive tailored to the specific needs of the students, created with the programs in China
Recruiting a team of experienced tutors who are passionate about education and have the skills to engage with students in a virtual setting.
Developing partnerships with local schools and community organizations to identify students who would benefit most from our program and to ensure that our efforts align with the needs of the community.

Overall, our initiative is focused on improving educational outcomes for underprivileged students in China. By working together with local partners and leveraging the expertise of our dedicated team, we are confident that we can make a meaningful impact on the lives of these students and help to build a brighter future for them and their communities.
