  • 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.

As a foundation for the services Axiom Learning will provide to interested parties, we have developed some of the most powerful tools available anywhere in the world which have the potential to help millions of students worldwide. Through our 1-on-1 Learning Laboratories, technology-driven, cutting-edge technology tools, our transformative set of interventions for kids with learning challenges, Axiom is dedicated to spending the next several years of our journey scaling what we have to reach as many as kids around the world as we can.

Specific to this program, Axiom Learning has provided tutoring services for K-12 schools within an urban public school district, including from September 2021 to the present with the Boston Public School District at New Mission High School and from August 2018 to the present with Summit Public Schools.

During this period, Axiom Learning’s service offerings exemplify the relevant qualifications and components we will bring to our engagement with interested parties, including:

  • Weekly small-group tutoring sessions with around seventy-five (75) students struggling throughout middle and high school
  • Direct teacher training and support
  • Support and collaboration with the school(s) in developing appropriate lessons and materials for their students
  • Clyde Hill, WAThree (3) quarterly meetings and collaboration on grant reports with school leadership to evaluate/reflect on implementation

We pair one-on-one live, hands-on learning experiences with supplemental, interactive video lessons to support kids in kindergarten through eighth grade.


Our tutors can assist with K-12 and postsecondary academic subject areas, homework support, distance learning strategies, coaching, and creating routines to help with time management and organization. The tutoring staff at BES understand the difficulties that students who learn differently face every day. With an in-depth knowledge of different learning styles and how to address them, our tutors can individualize their methods to meet each student's needs. Depending on your child's age and need, we have a dynamic approach to support learning. From multisensory math and emerging literacy through AP and IB courses, our tutors can support your family. 


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.


Our program combines small, online classes with dedicated instructors, tailored curriculum, and cutting-edge learning management system. Our program focuses on math and/or English. Students attend weekly, live classes and complete homework assignments to reinforce learning between classes.
