Full-time professional tutors, making a real difference.

Our tutors make an impact on children each and every day and work to close the opportunity gap using structured, research-based interventions. Tutors become critically important members of each school community.

Day in the Life of a Pre-K Tutor

Our Pre-K tutors are embedded full-time in a single classroom for the entire school year. Tutors work closely with the classroom lead teacher and teacher’s assistant. They lead explicit whole-class, small-group, and one-on-one literacy interventions. Throughout the day, Pre-K tutors also embed essential skills into classroom rituals. These include literacy-rich transition activities such as singing rhyming songs and affirming, vocabulary-rich verbal communication.

Day in the Life of a K-3 Tutor

Our K-3 tutors serve full-time at one school for the entire year, working with students from different classrooms. Our tutors use 10 structured, scripted early literacy interventions that compliment what’s already being taught in the classroom. Tutors work with their caseloads of 15-18 students every day, providing the opportunity to build deep, meaningful relationships.
