Tutored by Teachers

Mission

Our mission is to build a national tutoring program, powered by our nation's teachers, to help close the opportunity and achievement gaps.

Program Description

Tutored by Teachers is a public benefit company driven to improve outcomes for students and teachers and advance equity in education. We serve the students who are struggling the most in historically underserved communities through small group, teacher-led virtual academic support to build students' foundational skills, further their social-emotional learning, and begin to address the trauma of COVID. In the process, our teacher-tutors get to fully express themselves as educators, earn extra income, and support their peers in the classroom. Our teacher-tutors receive on-going Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion training to promote culturally responsive instruction. We believe that technology has paved the way for us to build a national tutoring program, powered by our nation's teachers, to help close the opportunity gap.
