What sets us apart.
How are we transforming the way tutoring works? We start by seamlessly connecting students with highly qualified tutors on the nation’s largest live learning platform.
To ensure every tutor meets the highest standards, we rigorously vet each applicant through tutoring simulations, academic and personal background checks, and interviews.
A strong student-tutor relationship delivers better outcomes. So we’ve developed a proprietary matching process with over 100 variables to identify the perfect tutor for each student.
Our purpose-built learning platform is much more than a video call. Students and tutors can meet face-to-face, use interactive tools, and collaborative workspaces for a truly engaging online experience.
Making a difference one outcome at a time.

For students who require a bit more help, high-dosage 1-on-1 tutoring has been shown to have the largest impact.³ Our evidence-based live tutoring platform pairs students with the best-fitting tutor for their needs. Students are encouraged to meet with their tutor at least three days per week.
Small Group Tutoring
Small Group Tutoring brings the group dynamics and collaborative benefits of the classroom to the online tutoring space. Students are placed into groups of up to five students with similar proficiencies, which allows the tutor to adjust session content to be more effective for each student. Additionally, this 5:1 tutor-student ratio fits within the approved ARP funding guidelines.
For tutoring to be most effective, it’s crucial to meet the student where they are. With our adaptive assessments, we use the latest advances in learning science to evaluate a student’s proficiency in a given subject. Not only do initial assessment results help tutors personalize lesson plans to address specific skill deficiencies, they also serve as a clear baseline to measure progress over time.
Learning Differences Support
One of the benefits of our personalized approach and tutor vetting process is that we’re able to connect students with learning differences to experienced tutors who can apply proven strategies that help. This is true whether a student is challenged by dyslexia, autism, ADHD, or virtually any other special need.
