EdLight helps align tutoring with the school curriculum and allows teachers to oversee the quality of tutoring.

Program Description

EdLight is a platform to organize student work. Using EdLight's tutoring features, teachers can assign students to tutoring, specifying the standards / content for tutoring, and sharing any classwork / data that will allow the tutor to target their support. Tutors then share student work from each session back with teachers, allowing teachers to ensure that the tutoring is aligned to classwork and high quality. This intimate communication between teachers and tutors builds trust and allows teachers to confidently focus on grade level work during core instruction time.
