We're three volunteers offering tutoring services at NO charge to benefit our community. We're a not-for-profit organization, which means we don't make a single dime for our services. We want to serve and give back to our community during these difficult times.
We offer tutoring services for students 7 to 17. Instead of financial compensation, we ask clients to "pay it forward" and make food or cash donations (in the name of the Pay it Forward Tutoring Company) to the two charities below:
SHAILI ISABELLA GANESHAPPA, co-founder and tutor, is a student at Saint Mary's Hall in the class of 2022 in San Antonio, Texas. She is a pole vaulter and an artist. Additionally, Shaili is a member of NCL(National Charity League) and volunteers weekly with San Antonio Pets Alive. Since the inception of Pay it Forward, Shaili has had the privilege of working alongside so many impressive individuals. Her strategy is to elevate her student's confidence by inspiring, empowering, and instructing in a trusting environment. Through relational mentorship, she helps her students to discover their strengths and purpose in order to tackle the various subjects or heavy course loads that stand in between her students and their goals. Shaili is hopeful that Pay it Forward's efforts will inspire others to make a positive change in their own communities. She is honored to be one of the leaders of Pay it Forward and is eager about the future of this organization.
ALY KARIM KHANMOHAMED, co-founder and tutor, is a rising 10th grade student at Saint Mary’s Hall. Born and raised in San Antonio, Texas, Aly is employed at Kumon Math and Reading Center in the summer time where he teaches children the fundamental concepts in Math and English. Aly is among the top students in his class, has been inducted into the National Junior Honor Society and is a member of the Student Council. As a recipient of the President’s Service Gold Award for performing 500 hours of community service, Aly has always enjoyed serving and giving back to the community by working directly with students. As a director of Pay it Forward, Aly’s primary reason for taking on this initiative is that among other things, he understands the Pandemic has taken a huge toll on children’s education all over the country. Aly, together with his peers, wishes to support and inspire the community by assisting students who may need coaching and support with their school work. His work as a learning instructor and his leadership experience equip Aly with the skills necessary to be a confidante and a mentor for the youth.
BAILEN ALEJANDRO GANESHAPPA, co-founder and tutor, is a student at Saint Mary’s Hall in the class of 2023 in San Antonio, Texas. He is a basketball and lacrosse player. Both sports hold a great value to him and have played an important role in his young life. He is also an active member of the Saint Mary’s Hall Speech and Debate team. Acting and public address are both huge passions of his, and the activity has allowed him to advocate for the messages he wishes to spread. When Bailen and his peers started Pay it Forward he said "our goal is to be more than just an academic resource." Connecting interpersonally with his students has been an eye-opening chapter in his young life, and it's an experience he hopes to bring to many more across the city. He is proud to be a part of an organization that teaches the youth of our communities to be fearless and passionate in their futures. As one of the leaders of Pay it Forward, Bailen could not be more thrilled about what the future holds for this organization.
