‘Online service connects students with virtual tutors during stay-at-home order’ (April 17, 2020)
An online service is helping New York City students keep up with their studies while they’re out of the classroom due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The online service ‘Edumate NYC’ matches undergraduate and graduate students with kindergartners through 12th graders at city schools for free virtual tutoring sessions.
They’re connected based on needs and abilities.
When the coronavirus pandemic sent Harvard University sophomore Ilana Cohen home to Park Slope, she set out to help current students who are adjusting to remote learning.
“We’ve had hundreds of responses from volunteer tutors, most of whom we’ve matched by now with students,” said Cohen.
“We largely leave it to tutors to figure out with their students when works best for both of them, but generally tutors and students are at least meeting for one-hourlong sessions every week virtually by whatever platform they feel most comfortable using,” said Cohen.
Cohen says that as interest grows, she and her team of core coordinators will explore expanding throughout the state and potentially around the country.

NY Fashion Week Runway Model See Bionic Arm as the Ultimate Tech Accessory

NY Fashion Week Runway Model See Bionic Arm as the Ultimate Tech Accessory

Model Rebekah Marine rocked the runway at NY Fashion Week and in the spring Nordstrom catalog. And she’s a whole lot more than a pretty face—she’s a dedicated advocate for people with limb differences, especially children. Rebekah was born without her right hand, and for much of her life, she chose not to wear a prosthesis. But in 2014, news about an advanced prosthetic hand got Rebekah’s attention and led her to investigate what it would be like to wear the i-limb ultra revolution hand, which can be controlled by apps on a cell phone. She and her prosthetist Ryan Spill visited the studios of “Good Day Philadelphia!”, Fox 29, to share her story with the morning news team. The lovely Rebekah Marine shows the world what it means to be perfectly imperfect, beautifully bionic, confidently capable, and ready to make things happen!
