Robin Hood of tutoring takes from Google; gives to schools.

We are excited to help schools, especially during this economic downturn. Our one-on-one, in-home tutoring programs have helped thousands of students achieve their academic goals. We expect this campaign will allow us to assist even more students while giving much needed funds to their schools.

TeamUP! Tutors, an in-home tutoring provider, is extending its mission to help elementary, middle, and high school students succeed by giving money to schools. The company's "Raise Grades, Raise Money" campaign will redirect new client acquisition costs from Google to schools.

Over the last two years, TeamUP! Tutors has spent over $100,000 on Google Adwords. Rather than pay for every ad web-surfers click, TeamUP! Tutors is making an unprecedented effort to convert advertising dollars into school funds. Whenever a newly referred client completes their initial tutoring package, TeamUP! Tutors will give 10% of the package price back to the student's school. Referrals come from parent associations, current & past clients, teachers, school counselors, tutors, and friends.

Schools continue to face budget shortfalls even after cutting teachers, eliminating programs, and increasing class sizes. TeamUP! Tutors' donations will help schools purchase books, paper, and equipment to enrich students' learning experience throughout the 2009-2010 school year.

"We're not stealing from the rich to give to the poor, but we are replacing our Google ad campaigns with a referral campaign that is a big win for us and for the schools," says Leon Baranovsky, president of TeamUP! Tutors. "We are excited to help schools, especially during this economic downturn. Our one-on-one, in-home tutoring programs have helped thousands of students achieve their academic goals. We expect this campaign will allow us to assist even more students while giving much needed funds to their schools."

To help parent-school associations spread the word, a "Raise Grades, Raise Money" fundraising kit is available on the company's web site.
