  • 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.

Startup Reading rebalances the resources a teacher employs to deliver reading lessons to the individual student with the appropriate level of personal engagement.

Our approach uses digital reading lessons developed and tested in the classroom and in tutoring sessions to deliver individual reading lessons to the student.

A reading coach oversees the student's assignment, progress, and engagement. The reading coach spends 4-7 minutes with the individual student at the completion of the digital lesson. This reading coach engagement is critical to validating the student's understanding of the lesson and use of the lesson skills to read the content. But the reading coach also provides that essential human connection to the student, developing the student's confidence to read and to progress to more complex content.

The curriculum employs a phonics strategy and is fully aligned with the Science of Reading principles.

The program uses digital reading lessons in a tutoring style format. Each page in the student workbook has a digital lesson explaining a specific reading skill with directions for the student to follow in the examples. The lessons are designed to be presented to a class, a small group, or in a tutoring session.

The curriculum deploys a phonics approach in learning to decode words, aligned with the Science of Reading, by combining the sounds of consonants and vowels to read words followed by phrases and stories.

As a student completes their assigned digital lesson, a reading coach will spend time with the individual student on the following activities:
a) Review the student's completion of notations in the workbook as directed in the lesson.
b) Review the student's understanding of the content and reading skill in the lesson
c) Review the student's comfort in reading the content in the accompanying exercises.

The reading coach acknowledges the student's effort and expresses confidence that the student is making progress in learning to read. A reading coach will develop a mentor relationship with the student, and this individual relationship is a key aspect in successfully implementing the literacy foundation. of the program. We recommend a reading coach can work with 4 to 7 students over a 45-minute to one-hour reading lesson, spending 4-7 minutes with each student.
