  • 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.

Tutor Matching Service has developed an online tutoring platform called GoBoard. It combines video conferencing, an interactive canvas, and education tools like a graphing calculator, an equation editor, molecular bonds creator, and much more. In addition, there is a reference library with subject-specific tools, including math, physics, chemistry, business, and more. GoBoard also features a first-of-its-kind ability to text in a photo of handwritten work or textbook pages directly into a collaborative board for others in the session to then mark up in real-time. For K-12 districts, GoBoard can even track the online tutoring hours that your tutors and students complete for reporting purposes.

GoBoard was constructed specifically for tutoring, is grounded in research-backed learning principles, and is vastly easier to use than running a virtual conferencing app and a digital whiteboard at the same time.

With GoBoard, tutors and students can create multiple pages with custom names, expanding the amount of content covered in a session. Tutors or students can upload work to a shared canvas by simply snapping a photo and texting to a session number. Work is done collaboratively in real-time with audio, video, and text chat features. Sessions are autosaved, allowing tutors and students to come back to the same GoBoard at the next booked session.

GoBoard also boasts a customizable Reference Library that allows tutors and students to use their own source materials. GoBoard can be accessed from an iPad, tablet, laptop, or desktop device by opening up any web browser and clicking a GoBoard link. There is no unique or separate software to download.
