Executive Director and Founder Mark Destler

Mark oversees Tutors for All’s programs, staff, and relationships with client schools.  In the summer of 2000, he left his job teaching 8th grade English and reading to join The Match School as a founding teacher and administrator. As consultant and then as Director of Title One and Tutorial at City on a Hill, he built Tutors for All programs that closed the achievement gap between African-American students at CoaH and Caucasian students state-wide.  For this work he was named Boston Partners in Education’s Educator of the Year.   As Director of Tutorial at Codman Academy, his programs contributed to student growth among the top seven districts in the state for three years running.  Mark received his Bachelors in Religious Studies from Williams College in 1992 and his Masters  in Teaching English from Brown University in 1995.

Program and Recruitment Manager Joseph Alvarez

Joseph is the new program coordinator for Tutors for All, and will be working to help support the Codman, Tobin, and Boston Green Academy sites.  After graduating from Boston University in 2013, Joseph spent two years an AmeriCorps service member.  His first year he worked as an AmeriCorps VISTA member in Waukesha, Wisconsin helping to oversee a youth mentorship program run through Carroll University and Waukesha County.  His second year brought him back to Boston to serve as AmeriCorps fellow with Tenacity, serving at the Mario Umana Middle School in East Boston.  His experiences from his service have made him passionate about education and bridging the achievement gap that exists here in Boston.  In his spare time, Joseph loves to play soccer and tennis at Moakley Park or spend a nice day reading out on the Esplanade.
