Being a Working Parent is Heroic
It took a global pandemic, school shut-downs, and office closures for companies to realize the challenges that working parents have always been quietly facing: juggling the competing demands of family and work life.
Whether they're running from the office for soccer practice pick-up or addressing the meltdown of their second-grader in the room next door between conference calls, the fact remains that before, during, and after COVID, parents face a unique set of challenges that contribute to increased stress levels and decreased productivity and they need support.

My daughter did double-digit addition at the end of 1st grade and this was a great class for learning how to do double-digit subtraction. This is exactly the kind of tutoring I am looking for as I work from home. Outschool Mom
Outschool has been a great resource for my 9-year-old. She gets to try out new things to see where her talents lie and make friends while reinforcing the skills she already has. She cheers each time she gets a notification for an upcoming class. Outschool Dad
