LAUSD contracts Paper to provide free tutoring for K-6 students 


Building L.A. students' confidence to problem solve on their own 

Paper partners with Los Angeles Unified School District to provide free, unlimited access to trained tutors so every elementary school student can ask questions, work through problems, and grow their confidence. Paper’s skilled tutors are ready to provide assistance in the language that’s most comfortable for students—whether that’s English, Spanish, French, or Mandarin.

Elementary students at LAUSD can now chat with a live tutor in seconds using Paper’s Live Help feature. They can also submit written compositions to the Review Center to receive expert feedback within 24 hours or extend their learning at home by signing up for PaperLive shows.
