"Beyond the Book, founded by a group of high school-aged students at Castilleja School, seeks to help children in grades K-8 with free one-on-one online studying and mentorship sessions that last 30 minutes. The group covers subjects such as reading, math, language, special projects and creativity."

“[Our Study Buddy has been] AWESOME for my younger son. She's simply amazing! She has been totally staying on top of everything, also a great communicator. My son enjoys every and each session he has with [his Study Buddy] and tells me how [much more] effective she is than me. We all look forward to her session every time.”
