We enforce our mission through COMPLETELY FREE online lessons, classes, and supplemental activities. It seems too good to be true, but we do not and will not ask for your financial information.
Currently, we only offer English lessons, but are working to expand our curriculum to teach other languages as well.

The summer before her freshman year of high school, Sophie took a trip to China by herself to visit family, and was surprised when nearly all of the adults she met requested she teach their children English.
Realizing the severe lack of affordable English tutoring in China, Sophie applied to work a paid position as an English tutor for an online company which specialized in virtually teaching Chinese students English through video chat.
She loved the job and the people she met, but began to realize that the material she was instructed to teach often had grammatical errors or awkward phrasing. Sophie then began to research the company more, causing her to discover the very high price her students were paying for each lesson.
This would ultimately lead to Sophie quitting her job as a tutor and starting Teaching Terra along with other classmates that were deeply involved in community service, language learning, and technology.
