Founder - Lucy Yu

In 2021, driven by my unwavering passion, I established BetterMe as a non-profit organization with a singular mission: to make education accessible to people worldwide. Initially, with a modest team of three student teachers, we conducted weekly tutoring sessions for school children, exchanging not only knowledge of the English language but also cultural insights.

Over time, BetterMe experienced significant growth.This expansion allowed us to commit ten hours per week to educating children from regions as diverse as Thailand, China, and Guatemala. In addition to our regular teaching sessions, she took on the task of designing a website that hosts all our educational materials, readily available to the public at no cost.


The journey of BetterMe has been one of continuous dedication and growth, driven by our collective commitment to accessible education and the power of community.
