Detroit Education Society or “DES” is a nonprofit, after school, online-tutoring organization, teaching Metro-Detroit’s students. Our Motto: “Now is our time, this is our place to give back.”

In 2013, selective professionals from the Metro Detroit area founded Detroit Education Society (“DES”) with their belief and one goal in mind i.e. to give the Gift of Education. Our primary focus was to tutor STEM (Math &Science) and English courses, but now we also offer ACT and SAT preparatory courses to high school students.

In 2013, we started with 4 tutors, 6 Detroit-students and 1 school. In our 6th year, this year of 2019, we embark 200 + tutors from Metro-Detroit High schools who tutor 100 Detroit-school from 3 Detroit Schools.

All of our tutors are high school students, college students; and professionals like Doctors and Engineers volunteering their time for this great cause. Every year, our tutors put hundreds of hours in teaching and comforting students that no subject is difficult; and every concept can be learnt if right amount of dedication and hard work is put in. At DES, each one of our tutor is compassionate instilling students with knowledge and confidence. Living through their daily commitments, yet, they never forget to contribute in these young lives. To join this great cause and become a tutor please apply at Our Tutor Sign-Up Page.

Metro Detroit Public Schools appreciates our efforts and since 2016, more than 10 Detroit-Metro High-schools have embedded DES educational program in their respective schools under the umbrella of NHS (what is NHS) clubs, managed by DES.

Golf 4 Education

On Sunday, June 26th 2016, Detroit Education Society held their annual Golf Outing for Education 2016. This event took place at the Northville Hills Golf Club, where over 90 supporters came out to support Detroit Education Society. There were raffle drawings, with many cool prizes for people to win, snacks, and more. Supporters including Lance Sitto from John Paul Home Care, Dr. Harnath Policherla, and many more helped the organization raise over $5000 dollars, after expenses. The Golf Outing was organized to publicize the educational cause of Detroit Education Society. Students from Detroit Education Society help tutor Detroit Public School students in 4th and 5th grade in STEM subjects (math, and science) and also English. Determined to help Detroit students in need, the run was meant to raise awareness to join the cause, and help tutor the Detroit Students in need. Currently, DES has been tutoring around 40 DPS-students online and 20 on-site. Current DES tutors are either high-school or college students or adult professionals from Metro-Detroit.Currently, tutors teach elementary school students from Wayne Elementary and Carleton Elementary. These students teach online via Google-Hangout math on Mondays and Tuesdays, and English on Thursdays to these students. To help the Detroit students as much as possible, tutors are given grade requirements from the schools to see what exactly these students need to excel. The tutors help give the students education, because that is what will truly take them far.

From this fall, DES is planning to expand. Detroit Education Society’s online-tutoring program will soon be embedded into High Schools, including in Novi, Troy, and Northville, to get more willing high schoolers tutor. Detroit Education Society encourages any willing high school students to join online under our Education Programs tab, to sign up to be a tutor. No gift is greater than the gift of education, and by tutoring these students in need in Detroit, young tutors will be giving them just that. For more info, contact Anjali Singh: +1 248-231-4181


Run 4 Education

Detroit, Michigan :

On Sunday, May 22, Detroit Education Society held their 1st “Run for Education”, which included a 5k and a 10k run at Proud Lake recreation Area in Commerce Twp, Michigan that was participated by close to 150 participants. The “Run for Education” was organized to publicize the educational cause of Detroit Education Society (also registered as Detroit Indians as non-profit -501(C)3 with IRS).

Detroit Education Society wanted to raise awareness for more High-school students to join their online-tutoring program. Students each week help tutor Detroit Public School students of 4th and 5th grade in STEM subjects (math, science and English). Determined to help Detroit students in need, the run was meant to raise awareness to teens and other supporters to join the cause, and help tutor the kids in need. Currently, DES has been tutoring around 40 DPS-students online and 20 on-site. Current tutors are either high-school or college students or adult professionals from Metro-Detroit.

Currently, tutors teach elementary school kids from Wayne Elementary and Carleton Elementary. These students teach online via Google-Hangout math on Mondays and Tuesdays, and English on Thursdays to these kids. To help the kids as much as possible, tutors are given grade requirements from the schools to see what exactly these kids need to excel. From coming Fall on, DES is planning to embed DES-online-tutoring program in High-schools under the NHS umbrella.

Detroit Education Society was founded in 2013 by a few professionals from the metro Detroit area. They came together, and decided that they wanted to give back to the place they had called home for so many years. So, they founded DES, registered as a non-profit through the IRS. The DES motto is “Now is our time, This is our place to give back.” The volunteers at DES try to give students in need the Gift of Education.
