  • Tutoring programs are those organizations that offer one-on-one and/or small group tutoring directly to students, either in-person, virtually, or through both modes of delivery. 
  • Technology platforms are technology platforms that facilitate tutoring programs.
  • Interventions offer materials (e.g., an instructional scope and sequence, placement assessment, progress monitoring tools) that are used by a tutoring program, but do not offer tutoring directly.  

This database is intended for Districts, States or nonprofits to identify potential tutoring partners, for potential tutors to identify potential employers and for tutoring organizations to have a clearer understanding of the landscape and to identify interventions that might be useful to their programs, if needed.

Please note that some of these programs are also listed on ProvenTutoring.org where you can find additional information on relevant research studies and costs.

Families of students that require individualized supports have an uphill battle in determining what their child needs to succeed in school and how to go about getting it. Likewise, schools often face barriers in providing effective services to students with specialized learning plans: services can quickly become costly and resources are limited. Beacon professionals have been on both sides of the IEP table and are dedicated to creating partnerships between parents and the school in order to maximize support for the student.


Our goal is to get all participants at grade-level proficiency or above in math and/or reading. We accomplish this via small-group tutoring for grades PK4-12 in in-school, after-school, summer, and virtual programs targeted primarily at low-performing schools and students in South Dallas and surrounding communities. Students receive individualized attention, achieve academic mastery in core subjects, and show demonstrable proof of applied learning that will ensure their academic success in middle school, high school, and beyond. Each student is assessed, followed by the development of a customized learning plan. Certified professionals, assisted by trained volunteers, provide two to three hours of weekly tutoring using integrated exercises, workbooks, and storybooks. Students develop self-discipline, focus, and ability as they progress at their own pace; promoting confidence in their own abilities.

Start Making a Reader Today® (SMART®) is a volunteer program widely implemented in Oregon for students in grades preK-3 who are at risk of reading failure. The program is designed to be a low-cost, easy-to-implement intervention. Volunteer readers go into schools where at least 40% of students are eligible for free or reduced-price lunch and read one-on-one with students twice a week for half an hour. Typically, one volunteer works with two children on four types of activities: reading to the child, reading with the child, re-reading with the child, and asking the child questions about what has been read. The program also gives each student two new books a month to encourage families to read together.

Coupled with the Swearer Center's foundational components: community engagement, engaged scholarship, and social innovation, we strongly believe this program will have positive implications including higher graduation rates, higher rates of matriculation into a four-year university, higher grades on standardized testing, more positive attitude towards school and life, and higher self-esteem.


We have successively provided reputable tutoring and test-preparation services to a wide demographic of students and programs for over 10 years. Working with other programs has allowed us to collect extensive data and insight which we have used to create individualized strategies needed to see improvement and achieve student success. We take a comprehensive approach on learning which is constructed through the facilitation of engaging instruction as well as collaboration with teachers, schools, and experienced instructors with proven track records. Our approach consists of implementing research-backed assessments to set a baseline of each student's knowledge, create a learning plan targeting weaknesses following the university/school course goals and state standards, and measure progress through post-assessments, course grades, and course pass rates.


Tutor Matching Service is the tutor management platform from Study Edge, a learning science company committed to improving the entire education continuum, from K-12 to college and beyond. For K-12 students specifically, one-on-one tutoring has been shown to have a significant impact on overall student performance.

The TMS platform helps students connect with the right tutors at the right price. TMS is parent-friendly, allowing parents to search for tutors based on geographical location and subject. With TMS, families can schedule tutors online at the time that works best for them, even last minute. TMS makes it easy to decide which tutors might best fit a student's needs by assigning badges to tutors who are trained or certified by their institutions, such as High GPA or Tutor Essential Trained.

School districts can opt-in at no cost to have a TMS site built for their community that boasts a collection of tutors chosen specifically for their students. School districts can choose to allow local certified teachers to work as tutors on the platform. School districts can create vouchers with local or federal funds to support specific student groups by providing tutoring hours. TMS hosts a data dashboard for districts or school administrators with many customizations and tools to monitor teacher and student usage.

Tutor Matching Service has developed a 100% free online tutoring platform called GoBoard (www.GoBoard.com), the platform for all online TMS-booked sessions. GoBoard combines video conferencing, an interactive work canvas, and educational tools like a graphing calculator, an equation editor, molecular bonds creator, and much more. TMS creates unique links to session-specific GoBoard rooms, giving tutors and students easy access to a workspace that saves their progress for future sessions. With this continuous learning environment, tutors and students can build on past learning together.

For parents, this service to directly connect with state-specific college students and certified teachers is undoubtedly the least expensive way to find a high-quality tutor. There are many highly effective tutors available now on TMS for less than $15 per hour.
