  • 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 where you can find additional information on relevant research studies and costs.

Each hour-long session consists of customized lessons based on your child's specific needs, homework help, test prep, and rewards to motivate our students.

Our tutors work one-on-one with fifth-, sixth-, seventh-, and eighth-grade students to help with homework completion at Buford Middle School and Walker Upper School. The tutors mainly motivate and encourage while also answering some questions regarding homework assignments.

Our tutoring program is based on the following seven design principles that emerged from learning research.

Characteristics of the Typical Low-Achieving Learner: Literacy-based programming for participants offers hope for reversing the trend of poor student achievement. It hails from cognitive science and reading development research which connects learning and reading as a route to higher-than-expected achievement among participants with poor comprehension skills and competence. Typically, the low-achieving student can be described broadly as a typical novice learner; for him or her, traditional approaches to learning do not work. Oftentimes, he (or she) is a student having trouble constructing meaning from text, the primary mechanism traditional schools use to teach Participants content and skill. These are Participants who are unable to connect the dots and construct meaning from text and they lack the critical capabilities to engage as thinkers while in the process of reading or learning. For them the experience is a once over unfocused activity with little emerging as more important than anything else. 

Despite targeted efforts in the classroom and schoolwide learning interventions in school, low-achieving participants make limited or stagnant progress as learners and as readers. Cognitive science research indicates that such a learner lacks metacognition, a capability to monitor and regulate a person's thinking processes. Lacking in metacognition, the learner is also lacking in two critically important sub-skills: (a) comprehension monitoring and (b) comprehension fostering capabilities, skills that more capable learners take for granted and that are critical to constructing meaning and thereby comprehension. The importance of students' developing meta-cognitive awareness is paramount to their development as readers and as writers. Why? Because metacognition is the critical BUT missing ingredient among most low performing participants that is required to transform them into better learners, more aware learners, more capable learners.
