Clever Thoughts is a non-profit in collaboration with California Tutoring Company. 


To provide students, especially those from impoverished areas, with learning opportunities to help them become academically successful, critical thinkers, and empowered citizens.


We believe that students become empowered and motivated to learn when they feel they are truly being heard, helped, invested in, and respected and cared for.   Clever Thoughts creates learning opportunities for culturally diverse students in K-12.  Students are provided with learning programs that fit their needs and teach them how to set and reach goals that make them personally and academically successful. 

First Generation College Group

Clever Thoughts is working with California Tutoring Company on a pilot program to mentor First Generation College Students.  1stGenGirls met with five high school female students to assist them in setting goals and preparing for college. 

Clever Thoughts supports preparing first generation students from rural areas to attain their academic and career goals.  Through study skills, networking skills, SAT prep, mentoring, and guidance through college selection, Clever Thoughts will layout a path to success for our premier class of first generation women.

If you would like to support our efforts with a small donation or share your college story and career path, contact us through the website.

Of the original group, two successfully transitioned to college, and one starts college fall 2021. 

Clever Thoughts is looking to begin a new group in the Fall of 2021. 

We'd love to hear from you
