Congratulations to Ignite Tutoring's Class of 2021!

Ignite Tutoring is incredibly proud of our tutors from the UCLA graduating class of 2021! They have done amazing work and grown so much during their time with us, all while finding a way to serve as inspiring mentors and role models during some of the most challenging of times. They have contributed greatly to the growth of Ignite Tutoring by cultivating students’ academic growth and overall confidence. While our team will miss them greatly, it has been such a pleasure to have these devoted leaders as part of our Ignite community during their time at UCLA. We are lucky to have some of these students continue with our team, while others will be moving on to new experiences!

To show our appreciation for the class of 2021, we are spotlighting eleven of our amazing tutors:

As a graduating senior, what advice would you give to an incoming freshman?

Be PRESENT and keep track of the things and people that make you feel love, joy, and at peace!! Enjoy every moment and don’t stress the small things — they are temporary and not worth the mental strain! Try to maintain a healthy balance of productivity and fun: constantly checking in with yourself, your well-being, and then considering an incorporation of activities that make you feel most fulfilled :)
