Mission
Littera enables K12 institutions to provide high quality 1-on-1 and small group online tutoring for every student who needs it.
Program Description
Littera enables district or school personnel to design tutoring programs, setting program parameters such as schedule, student to tutor ratio, session length, content to be used, and type of tutor. When those programs are implemented, the platform manages all the tutor/student matching, scheduling, online tutoring delivery, and tracking of program execution.
