  • 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.

SIPPS (Systematic Instruction in Phonological Awareness, Phonics, and Sight Words) is a research-based foundational skills program proven to help both new and struggling readers in grades K–12 build skills and confidence for fluent, independent reading.

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. 


For 28 years, IFL has been building community partnerships and developing innovative software and human-powered solutions to advance early literacy. We collaborate with schools, districts, teachers, businesses, and students, and provide customized, technology-based tools for individualized instruction. Our comprehensive, unique, and proven “whole village” approach has helped more than 70,000 K-2 students succeed as readers. IFL’s core program, TutorMate, combines intensive, high-dosage (H-D), 1:1 tutoring led by trained paraprofessionals with weekly 1:1 enrichment tutoring led by trained corporate volunteers. Using proprietary software and loaned hardware, students connect to tutors remotely or in person and build solid foundations in phonics, sight word acquisition, as well as reading fluency, comprehension, enjoyment, and confidence. In the U.S., more than 8,000 students participate in H-D tutoring and enrichment tutoring annually. Research shows TutorMate students significantly increase reading proficiency, enjoyment and confidence. A recent two-year study showed that 1st grade H-D participants experienced a 163% increase in reading scores, compared to a 41% increase among non-participants."
