  • 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.

AVID offers tutoring that is:
 1. Structured: A process of repeatable steps allows for consistency across models; teachers, tutors, and students are trained on, reflective of, and continually coached in that process.
 2. Student-Centered and Safe: All tutorial models are built on a foundation of relational capacity so that students feel supported while seeking solutions.
 3. Inquiry-Based: Tutors and peers ask higher-order questions instead of offering answers.
 4. Collaborative: Peers use their collective agency to resolve points of confusion and support each other.
 5. Equitable: Defined roles and responsibilities ensure equal participation.
 6. Metacognitive: Students identify where they are confused, and then summarize their new learning and reflect on the process.

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.

FluidMath includes the first Collaborative Whiteboard designed specifically for Math teaching and learning and enables teachers, tutors, and students to share the same virtual Mathematics whiteboard and workspace in real-time. FluidMath combines the familiar and natural experience of sketching math problems with the power of computer-generated solutions. Users simply write math expressions and make drawings on the screen of a touchscreen computer while FluidMath recognizes the handwritten math notation and sketches and generates solutions in the form of algebraic expressions, computations, graphs, and dynamic animations. FluidMath enables teachers and tutors to easily create, distribute, and provide feedback on Mathematics activities, assignments, and self-grading assessments via the web. It is also a platform for Collaborative Problem Solving on which students work together to solve math problems.

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.
