SafeTutors' mission is to create an all inclusive training course for students who would like to be tutors. We will be providing an engaging online course that covers the basics of tutoring, placing emphasis on preventative methods to improve the mental health of tutees.

Here at PrepMate we are passionate about creating a chopping board which will be functional, aesthetically appealing and life changing for those who use it.
