This database includes an initial set of organizations that offer tutoring, technology platforms or academic interventions along with relevant information if available. 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. Interventions offer materials (e.g., an instructional scope and sequence, placement assessment, progress monitoring tools) that could be used within a tutoring program, but do not offer tutoring directly.  This is not meant to be an inclusive list, but a starting point. We welcome additional organizations to join the database by completing this form. The intended use for this database is 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.

Students in K-12 are paired with high school students who excel in math and English; they meet on a fixed weekly basis, with students meeting with the same tutor each time, ensuring that the student and tutor are able to build meaningful, high-impact relationships with one another. Prior to tutoring, tutors go through professional, research-based training on how to build grit and growth mindset skills in students while helping them with academics; they then apply these skills to their work as tutors and in doing so, gain true competency in coaching, communication and mindset development that they can use for the rest of their lives. Additionally, our tutors receive community service hours for their time and, thus, allow us to keep the fees for this high-quality, long-term personal tutoring accessible to families regardless of their income level.
