A Conversation on Personalizing Education
You are invited to the third annual conversation on personalizing education benefiting the Tutorpedia Foundation at the Autodesk Gallery in downtown San Francisco! This event will feature a series of short talks by dynamic speakers focusing on the most effective methods we can use to make learning personal and customize education in real, relevant, and rigorous ways for all students.
Alexandra Bernadotte - Founder and CEO of Beyond 12
Brian Greenberg - CEO of Silicon Schools Fund
Kelly Pope - Education Entrepreneur
We will also present the Tutorpedia Foundation Award to California Senator Mark Leno (District 11) and SFUSD Teacher and Author Sekani Moyenda (Taking It Personally: Racism in the Classroom).
Please come enjoy the fun educational activities, hors d'oeuvres, desserts, silent auction, photo booth and raffle. All ticket levels include one raffle ticket and you can choose where you'd like to invest it! We are raffling a new iPad mini, 4 field level seats to a SF Giants game, and dinner for 2 at Chez Panisse, Gary Danko, and Goat Hill Pizza! You must be present to win the raffle.
The opportunity to place a ghost bid for auction items is available. For more information on the auction items and bidding, please click here.
All money raised at the event will go to providing free tutoring for low-income students in the Bay Area.

Tutorpedia Foundation's mission is to make education more personal for under-resourced Bay Area middle and high school students through professional tutoring and targeted academic support. Tutorpedia Foundation believes that the one-on-one tutoring model can close achievement gaps, graduate more students from high school, and prepare more students for college and beyond. Tutorpedia Foundation uses tutoring to promote equity and social justice. Our one-on-one tutoring is student-centered and individualized, and addresses both academic content and standardized test preparation.
