Each day at The Sunshine Method, we are building stronger communities where every child has access to a quality education in order to reach their fullest potential. Our approach is inspired by the Latin phrase, cura personalis, where we’re committed to providing one-on-one tutoring and mentoring tailored to each child, taking into account their unique circumstances and experiences, while appreciating their particular gifts and abilities.

Since 2012, The Sunshine Method has made the commitment to support communities that need it most, focusing our efforts on providing quality education and mentorship to children in foster care, children’s hospitals, refugee programs, National School Lunch Programs, and the private sector to help build and bridge the educational achievement gap.

We strive to support each child’s academic and emotional development with a child-first approach to one-on-one tutoring and mentoring sessions to inspire curiosity and self-confidence. Children thrive under the guidance of The Sunshine Method’s team of highly skilled professional tutors & mentors, quickly becoming independent critical thinkers, actively engaged and driven to face new challenges. All with the confidence to succeed!
