About Us

GetEdgeucated offers a comprehensive online tutoring service that allows students in your school district to request free online tutoring from another student in your school at their convenience.


GetEdgeucated was inspired by SSHS Tutoring, a project started by highly motivated National Honor Society students in South Side High School (Rockville Centre, NY) who wanted to bring tutoring into the 21st century.

After tremendous success in our high school and interviews from local newspapers, including the Long Island Herald, Long Island Press, and Newsday, we wanted to offer the same opportunity to high school students across Long Island. GetEdgeucated, our parent company, works with school districts to provide students with an exciting approach to tutoring that lets them request help in any subject at their convenience.
