High Impact Tutoring
Our High Impact Tutoring service provides schools and families with trained staff who work with students on a one-to-one basis each day.
How it Works
One-to-one high impact tutoring takes place in the classroom or at home via families’ smartphones. Sessions occur 3-5X per week and are 5-minutes long to maximize a young student’s attention span and work with the student at their proximal zone of development.
Our trained, paid tutors help students develop a basic phonics foundation, learn sight words and build reading fluency.
Every day, each student uses our custom app on a tablet or laptop to independently practice the concepts that their tutor identified as needing work during that day’s tutoring session.
