  • 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.

AARP Foundation's Experience Corps is an intergenerational volunteer-based tutoring program that is proven to help children who aren’t reading at grade level become great readers by the end of third grade.


FEV Tutor offers a 1:1 online tutoring platform that provides live academic instruction and support to students 24/7. Informed by research, student data, and each organization’s existing ecosystem, FEV Tutor develops a customized tutoring program that ensures the most impactful learning outcomes.


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.


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.

The GO Foundation runs the GO Fellowship, an AmeriCorps national service program providing students in grades 3-12 with high-dosage tutoring in ELA and/or math and near-peer mentoring in an embedded model – from morning arrival through the end of the school day. Our tutors (“GO Fellows”) are typically recent college or high school graduates serving as AmeriCorps members who are trained to provide a year of hands-on service in schools. GO Fellows, who undergo a rigorous selection process, develop the communities they serve, mentor for leadership, and instruct for mastery. GO Foundation currently serves in district and charter schools in CT, DC, Newark NJ, and New York City.

GO Foundation has three key goals.
1. Improving literacy and math achievement for students served. Unlike most tutorial models, the GO Fellowship is designed to integrate fully into schools. Across GO program sties, 9 out of 10 teachers report that Fellows improve student learning.

2. Building school community. GO Fellows act as near-peer mentors and help students grow their social and emotional skills. Most program sites create additional mentoring opportunities through sports teams, clubs, affinity groups, and/or advisory groups that GO Fellows co-facilitate with teachers and other site staff. Additionally, GO Fellows often support the development and execution of extracurricular activities, after-school programs, and enrichment initiatives that complement student and school culture.

3. Increasing representation in the classroom. GO strives to recruit Fellows who represent the communities in which we serve. Nearly two-thirds of GO Fellows are people of color and their life experiences often mirror those of their students. To attract much-needed talent to the educational sector, promising Fellows who are interested in teaching are selected for a Teacher Residency program.


Fraction Face-Off! (FFO!) is a small-group systematic, structured tutoring program designed to promote knowledge of fractions to 4th grade students. FFO! emphasizes the three domains listed below:

  • Understanding fraction magnitude, including comparing, ordering, and placing fractions on number lines, and fraction equivalencies;
  • Fraction calculations, including an understanding of the operations and executing the operations;
  • Fraction word problems to contextualize fractions as numbers in everyday contexts and strengthen fraction magnitude understanding.

FMP or Freshman Mentoring Program helps freshman adapt and feel more comfortable with the high school experience. Mentoring consists of helping with note-taking and studying strategies. Our tutors work with freshmen directly and as a group to guide them with whatever they need. Not only will the tutors provide guidance, but they help with academics as well. All tutors have gone through freshman year already and are on advanced paths, granting all tutors the ability to help freshmen with any classwork/homework they are struggling with.


Future Forward is an early literacy intervention that provides individualized one-on-one tutoring and family engagement for kindergarten through 3rd grade struggling readers. The program is traditionally implemented embedded in schools, though we have piloted both virtual and hybrid implementation models for distance intervention (please note: These models have not yet been rigorously evaluated).


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.


Galaxy Math is a small-group systematic tutoring programs that teach students to identify, write, and count numbers, understand magnitude and place value, use <, >, and + signs. The programs provide instruction for students to become competent with efficient counting strategies to solve arithmetic problems by practicing skip counting by 10s, 5s, and 2s, identifying operations, writing addition and subtraction sentences, performing two-digit addition and subtraction, and identifying missing addends.


GT matches Brandeis students with Waltham public school students (K-12) for free 1 on 1 tutoring in any academic subject on campus


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.


Students are referred to GO based on academic and financial needs. Students are paired with a private tutor at no cost and begin a journey together that will last through middle school. Every student receives two, one-hour sessions per week over 30 weeks resulting in 60 additional hours of individualized academic support and care in a safe and nurturing after-school environment. Tutoring takes place on-site, at the child's school, allowing a smooth end-of-day transition for students. The consistency and support provided change a child's academic trajectory in profound ways.

Additional academic and social-emotional support from a safe, stable, and reliable role model is critical for the future of our most vulnerable students.

GO Tutors meet with classroom teachers at the start of the year to set learning goals for their students. They observe students in the classroom and attend curriculum nights and parent-teacher conferences. This individualized system of support ensures the child's academic needs are met. In addition to one-on-one tutoring, GO tutors serve as mentors. They are a bridge between home and school, partnering with parents and caregivers to provide enrichment opportunities for the family. Whether tickets to a play, a sporting event, visiting a museum, or receiving sponsorship for swimming or music lessons, this added level of trust, support, and opportunity transform students' feelings about school, their community, and life.

GO worked in partnership with the Ithaca City School District Bus Department until 2019, when the pandemic turned our world inside out. For 14 years, GO students were transported home at the end of their tutoring session, providing a smooth end-of-day transition for students whose families have little to no access to transportation. When ICSD suspended bus service, GO found creative ways to ensure students could continue tutoring after school and on-site, including membership with a local nonprofit organization, Ithaca Carshare. GO received emergency grant funds to cover the cost of transportation, and many tutors drove students home following their tutoring sessions. Three years into the pandemic, GO continues to face transportation challenges. This year, several ICSD after-school programs have agreed to accept GO students into their programs at no cost, and many students will participate in a brand new initiative called The GO Club. Centrally located at BJM Elementary, The GO Club will be home to children from six elementary schools, allowing them to broaden their peer groups while building social skills in a cooperative learning environment. The ICSD bus department will once again provide the necessary transportation for GO students.

Bridge the Gap is a series of systematic phonemic awareness intervention lessons for students in 2nd grade and above. The lessons can be used in small groups or with individual students who struggle to decode words automatically.


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. 


With a focus on improving educational equity and promoting a more just society, Helps Education Fund provides evidence-based programs and services that are free or low-cost and meaningfully advance student learning.


HeyTutor's program vets, screens, and trains tutors directly from a district's community to serve students live, and in-person on their campus. Our inclusive Learning Gap Curriculum embraces extensive academic standards to provide students with a solid foundation across subjects. It often involves diagnostic assessments to identify learning gaps, followed by resources and activities aimed at closing those gaps and ensuring that all students can achieve the expected learning outcomes. Tutoring is embedded during the school day with push in or pull out sessions or before/after school alongside childcare and enrichment opportunities. HeyTutor can also leverage district curriculum to support in-classroom initiatives.
