Innovations for Learning (Tutormate)
Understanding the importance that education holds for the future of today’s youth, Savills Studley began participating in Innovations for Learning in 2013. Innovations for Learning is a nonprofit organization focused on improving literacy instruction for children in the primary grades, and through their Tutormate program, Savills Studley brokers are able to connect with D.C. elementary schools through the internet to serve as tutors.
As Tutormates, brokers/employees work with the students every week to practice word exercises and help them learn to read. To date, 44 Savills Studley employees have participated and mentored students on a weekly basis.
