Tutor Matching Service

Mission

Tutor Matching Service (TMS) was created to promote student success with the core mission of increasing access to one-on-one education in higher education. Since our founding in 2009, we have expanded our purpose to now be able to curate the best technology options for learning centers, tutors, and students, helping to enhance the tutoring experience, in-person and online. We are established partners in the learning center community, partnering with over 200 colleges and universities, as well as being long-time members of the National College Learning Center Association (NCLCA) and the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA).

Program Description

Tutor Matching Service is a robust and timely resource to extend academic support students and families need during the shift to virtual and hybrid learning. Through TMS, families can find and connect directly with certified and trained online tutors for one-on-one tutoring. TMS provides district and school-level customizations, including assigning local policies for teacher participation, a unique web-page for each participating school and district, Single Sign-On (SSO) integration for students, and a data portal for districts to gauge student engagement. Ask us how TMS can work with districts to facilitate volunteer or supplemental tutoring by teachers.
