Randomized controlled trial study conducted?

Quasi-experimental study conducted?

This database includes an initial set of organizations that offer tutoring, technology platforms or academic interventions along with relevant information if available. Tutoring programs are those organizations that offer one-on-one and/or small group tutoring directly to students, either in-person, virtually, or through both modes of delivery. Interventions offer materials (e.g., an instructional scope and sequence, placement assessment, progress monitoring tools) that could be used within a tutoring program, but do not offer tutoring directly.  This is not meant to be an inclusive list, but a starting point. We welcome additional organizations to join the database by completing this form. The intended use for this database is for Districts, States or nonprofits to identify potential tutoring partners, for potential tutors to identify potential employers and for tutoring organizations to have a clearer understanding of the landscape, and to identify interventions that might be useful to their programs, if needed.

Masteryhour.org is a free, online tutoring program for K12 students, led by volunteers from colleges and universities, currently offered in English and Spanish. We use a mastery-based approach to ensure students advance at their own rate. All our tutors are trained in innovative teaching techniques including inquiry-based learning. anti-bias education, child-centered communication differentiating learning and cultivating a growth mindset. Volunteer professors and math teachers come to observe tutoring sessions and offer feedback and support to the student tutor volunteers. All the tutoring happens in the Mastery Hour zoom room. Students can drop in whenever they need tutoring and are paired with tutors in breakout rooms - or can stay in the main room for study hall (occasionally asking a question as needed). While we're starting with math offered twice a day in our zoom room, we hope to add more subjects and hours until Masteryhour.org is available 24 hours a day for free to any child who needs it.
