  • 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.

Tier One Learning Solutions was launched in Fall 2020 out of a sincere passion and need to educate children with integrity by providing an intervention-based tutorial service that goes beyond homework assistance. The idea was brought upon by frustrations and obstacles that my husband and I, both Certified Educators, encountered while teaching in various school districts in Texas.School districts classify students with academic deficits as Tier II and Tier III students performing below grade level in core subjects and school-wide assessments given at various times throughout the school year. Tier II and Tier III students are recommended for intervention-based tutorials during school hours but often do not receive these services consistently throughout the school year. Being former classroom teachers, we understand first-hand the need to provide intervention-based tutoring in schools; however, schools often do not have adequate staffing, the proper curriculum and additional educational materials to provide intervention-based tutoring. We have now made it our mission that every child will be a “Tier One Learner” by providing intervention-based tutoring in Reading and Math.

Brown University's online tutoring program is a free resource and service for all students of current partner K-12 schools offered through the Annenberg Institute, the Swearer Center and Tutor Matching Services.

Coupled with the Swearer Center's foundational components: community engagement, engaged scholarship, and social innovation, we strongly believe this program will have positive implications including higher graduation rates, higher rates of matriculation into a four-year university, higher grades on standardized testing, more positive attitude towards school and life, and higher self-esteem.

We have successively provided reputable tutoring and test-preparation services to a wide demographic of students and programs for over 10 years. Working with other programs has allowed us to collect extensive data and insight which we have used to create individualized strategies needed to see improvement and achieve student success. We take a comprehensive approach on learning which is constructed through the facilitation of engaging instruction as well as collaboration with teachers, schools, and experienced instructors with proven track records. Our approach consists of implementing research-backed assessments to set a baseline of each student's knowledge, create a learning plan targeting weaknesses following the university/school course goals and state standards, and measure progress through post-assessments, course grades, and course pass rates.


Designed to be used as a component of your tutor training program or as stand-alone training, Tutor Essentials is a self-paced, online course that equips tutors with the tools and tactics necessary to become a great tutor. The highly engaging course includes interactive elements such as real tutoring scenario videos, quizzes, and the creation of a personal tutoring philosophy statement. The entire training program takes 3-5 hours. The course can be completed in one sitting but also gives tutors the ability to save their work and complete it over multiple sessions. Tutor Essentials was developed by Purdue University in partnership with Study Edge, with input from CRLA certification volunteers, Emory University, Clemson University, IUPUI, and others.


Tutor Matching Service is the tutor management platform from Study Edge, a learning science company committed to improving the entire education continuum, from K-12 to college and beyond. For K-12 students specifically, one-on-one tutoring has been shown to have a significant impact on overall student performance.

The TMS platform helps students connect with the right tutors at the right price. TMS is parent-friendly, allowing parents to search for tutors based on geographical location and subject. With TMS, families can schedule tutors online at the time that works best for them, even last minute. TMS makes it easy to decide which tutors might best fit a student's needs by assigning badges to tutors who are trained or certified by their institutions, such as High GPA or Tutor Essential Trained.

School districts can opt-in at no cost to have a TMS site built for their community that boasts a collection of tutors chosen specifically for their students. School districts can choose to allow local certified teachers to work as tutors on the platform. School districts can create vouchers with local or federal funds to support specific student groups by providing tutoring hours. TMS hosts a data dashboard for districts or school administrators with many customizations and tools to monitor teacher and student usage.

Tutor Matching Service has developed a 100% free online tutoring platform called GoBoard (www.GoBoard.com), the platform for all online TMS-booked sessions. GoBoard combines video conferencing, an interactive work canvas, and educational tools like a graphing calculator, an equation editor, molecular bonds creator, and much more. TMS creates unique links to session-specific GoBoard rooms, giving tutors and students easy access to a workspace that saves their progress for future sessions. With this continuous learning environment, tutors and students can build on past learning together.

For parents, this service to directly connect with state-specific college students and certified teachers is undoubtedly the least expensive way to find a high-quality tutor. There are many highly effective tutors available now on TMS for less than $15 per hour.


Tutor Partners provides high-impact tutoring in math and literacy for students in grades Pre-K through 12. We partner with districts, schools, families and nonprofits to support students with learning gaps, special needs and learning differences, as well as English language learners.


We establish a tutoring program in each school district led by high school students that match high school student tutors to middle school and elementary school tutees.


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.


For 21 years and 20 million tutoring sessions, Tutor.com has been partnering with K–12 schools, higher education institutions, libraries, organizations, associations, and the U.S. military to provide learners from elementary school through college, graduate school, and beyond with highly effective, 1-to-1 academic and professional support.

Frequency: TbT tutoring programs will meet for 2-4 60-minute sessions per week.

Group Size: Consistent, leveled small groups are limited to 5 students with similar academic needs.

Personnel: Small groups are led by the same Teacher Tutor for the duration of the program, allowing for relationship building and responsive instruction. All Teacher Tutors are credentialed or experienced, professional educators with extensive classroom teaching experience, related degrees, and training in culturally responsive instruction.

Measurement: Programs are anchored around formative assessments to identify key skills and monitor progress.

Curriculum: The tutoring program is aligned to school programming and needs, allowing for rigor, continuity, and alignment to state standards.

TbT designs programs consultatively by meeting with school and district staff to determine student counts, grade levels, subject areas to serve, and scheduling. TbT then spends time before the tutoring program launches to determine leveled student groupings and focus skills / standards based on student data, align content to school needs, and select and train Teacher Tutors with professional backgrounds that match the students they will serve. TbT designs the tutoring scope and sequence, plans lessons, and selects instructional materials based on unique student groups (grade level, focus skills, interests).

TbT implements skills-based tutoring aligned to applicable state standards. To ensure that all instruction is aligned to state standards and customized to school needs, TbT reviews the school’s curriculum and school-provided student academic data. TbT can also customize programming to specifically tie tutoring sessions to a school’s curriculum and the corresponding scope and sequence.

Tutorfly works closely with our school partners to accurately measure the impact of tutoring on student outcomes. We do this by utilizing a variety of pre-assessment tools to benchmark student performance and then compare this with post-assessment data.
