Tutoring group helps low-income students

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Moshe Ohayon founded the Louisville Tutoring Agency in St. Matthews in 2005, attracting students from families who can afford to pay up to $100 per hour for extra help to get through school or to prepare for college entrance exams.

In the evenings, Ohayon volunteered at the Catholic Enrichment Center in western Louisville, tutoring less well-off students who, he found, had significant lapses in understanding of basic concepts.

Those students didn't have the resources to pay for years of one-on-one tutoring.

So three years ago, Ohayon started Educational Justice, a nonprofit that provides, for free, a small group of disadvantaged students in Louisville with the same rigorous, multiyear tutoring that his students in the tutoring agency receive.
