Our Story

LRT works to mitigate the impact of prolonged school closures during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Living Room Tutors was founded by Mayo High School Junior, Jinglin Li. According to Li, she first had the idea to start this service after school closures changed her role in her household from big sister to teacher. Jinglin began tutoring her two younger siblings, Jessica and David when schools switched to distance learning. She noticed that despite her parents possessing extensive educational backgrounds, they did not know how to help Jessica and David with their grade level homework. “The schooling curriculum has just changed with time” said Jinglin Li. “It makes more sense to be tutored by someone who recently been through the education system”. With these thoughts in mind, Jinglin launched Living Room Tutors from her own living room on April 24th of 2020.
