  • 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.

With Common Ground Tutors, students are grouped by skill level into small cohorts of 4 students and receive personal attention during their 45-minute tutoring sessions, three times a week. Students learn best when they develop a long-term relationship with a tutor who knows them well, cares for them, and gives them the personal attention they need. This is key to academic achievement, as well as social-emotional learning. SEL and positive psychology are core guiding principles in all our work, as research shows that SEL is closely linked to improvement in academic performance. Additionally, a whole-child educational philosophy is key to our approach. We begin each session with artistic inspiration: a poem, song, movement exercise, and/or story grounded in wisdom. This engages the whole child in learning: “head, heart, and hands.” Students receive a healing education and build a strong holistic foundation for their future.

Since 1998, Fit Learning has been researching and developing a unique system of instruction that is based on a combination of behavior and neuroscience. Direct service providers are called learning coaches who must go through intensive training and reach rigorous performance standards to become certified in the model. Students are first assessed using a combination of Fit Learning's skill-based assessment and conventional norm-referenced assessments. Data from the assessment guide the development of programming for each learner. Once a student's program is developed, they will typically receive 3-5 1-hour sessions per week with a learning coach (1-to-1). During a session, learners will engage in developing fluency with isolated component skills and critical concepts related to those skills. Weekly progress monitoring programs are implemented for each learner to ensure functional grade-level gains are being achieved. Data for everything a learner does in session is collected and charted by his/her/their learning coach. Data is reviewed daily by the student's Case Manager and weekly by the student's Case Advisor. During these reviews, CMs and CAs use the charted data to enhance learning through the implementation of systematic interventions. Every 40-hours, a student is re-assessed to evaluate. Data from the reassessment are used to communicate growth to parents, make recommendations for the continuation or discontinuation of sessions, and evaluate the effectiveness and efficacy across all learners. Fit Learning has developed and tested isolate programming lines in areas of reading (letter naming to grade level passage reading), Math (number sense to Algebra 1), thinking/problem solving/reading comprehension, and school readiness (pre-k, K, and 1st grade). Generally, we serve students in the PreK-12. About 40% of all learners who have received services from Fit Learning have been diagnosed with a learning disability. On average, parents can expect their child to improve 40 percentile points in the domain targeted during sessions in the first 40 hours. Results are almost identical for in-person sessions as they are for on-line sessions.


We provide a tutoring program for grades K-3, using recorded reading lessons that engage the learner in the workbook following the directions of the teacher to follow the presentation. There are 350+ video lessons organized in an LMS (Learning Management System). An onsite reading coach or tutor/mentor then reviews the workbook for completion and checks the student's understanding confidence in reading the exercises in the lesson. The program facilitates the student moving at their own pace, lessons are available 24-7, tutoring sessions are designed to review several completed lessons with the student.

We work with schools and educational organizations to provide tutoring content in an after school environment and in summer reading programs. We have training for tutor/mentors and can be in person to help launch a reading program.


One-on-one tutoring for students who need help with school math or school-level computer science.


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.


Phonemic awareness is the ability to understand that spoken words are made up of individual sounds called phonemes, and it's one of the best early predictors for reading success. We believe that explicit, systematic phonological and phonemic awareness instruction is the missing piece in classroom literacy instruction. 


HeyTutor's program vets, screens, and trains tutors directly from a district's community to serve students live, and in-person on their campus.
