Aly Murray

Founder and Executive Director


Aly Murray is the Founder and Executive Director of UPchieve, an edtech nonprofit that provides free, 24/7 online tutoring and college counseling to low-income students in the U.S. Raised in a low-income, immigrant household by a single mom, Aly struggled to navigate the college application process and ultimately enrolled at a local community college after high school. Six years later, she graduated summa cum laude with a degree in mathematics from the University of Pennsylvania. The concept for UPchieve was informed both by her own experience struggling to access academic support as a low-income student, and by her 10+ years of experience tutoring mathematics to pay her way through college. To date, UPchieve has provided free, online tutoring and college counseling to more than 50,000 students nationwide and matched over 160,000 tutoring requests. For her work on UPchieve, Aly has been featured on the Forbes 30 Under 30 list in Education (2021) and honored as a Roddenberry Fellow (2021).
