The National Student Support Accelerator’s vision is that all K-12 students will have access to high-impact tutoring* to accelerate their academic success. Started by a diverse group of over 20 national education leaders that came together early in the pandemic to address student learning needs caused by COVID-19, the Accelerator will provide the tools and networking opportunities to incent and support education organizations to adopt high-impact tutoring at scale — addressing COVID-19 related learning loss as well as supporting academic success in the long-term.
Tutoring is a form of teaching, one-on-one or in a small group, towards a specific goal. High-impact tutoring leads to substantial learning gains for students by supplementing (but not replacing) students’ classroom experiences. High-impact tutoring responds to individual needs and complements students’ existing curriculum.
