  • 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. 
  • Technology platforms are technology platforms that facilitate tutoring programs.
  • Interventions offer materials (e.g., an instructional scope and sequence, placement assessment, progress monitoring tools) that are used by a tutoring program, but do not offer tutoring directly.  

This database is intended 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.

Please note that some of these programs are also listed on ProvenTutoring.org where you can find additional information on relevant research studies and costs.

We have successively provided reputable tutoring and test-preparation services to a wide demographic of students and programs for over 10 years. Working with other programs has allowed us to collect extensive data and insight which we have used to create individualized strategies needed to see improvement and achieve student success. We take a comprehensive approach on learning which is constructed through the facilitation of engaging instruction as well as collaboration with teachers, schools, and experienced instructors with proven track records. Our approach consists of implementing research-backed assessments to set a baseline of each student's knowledge, create a learning plan targeting weaknesses following the university/school course goals and state standards, and measure progress through post-assessments, course grades, and course pass rates.


Designed to be used as a component of your tutor training program or as stand-alone training, Tutor Essentials is a self-paced, online course that equips tutors with the tools and tactics necessary to become a great tutor. The highly engaging course includes interactive elements such as real tutoring scenario videos, quizzes, and the creation of a personal tutoring philosophy statement. The entire training program takes 3-5 hours. The course can be completed in one sitting but also gives tutors the ability to save their work and complete it over multiple sessions. Tutor Essentials was developed by Purdue University in partnership with Study Edge, with input from CRLA certification volunteers, Emory University, Clemson University, IUPUI, and others.


Tutor Matching Service is the tutor management platform from Study Edge, a learning science company committed to improving the entire education continuum, from K-12 to college and beyond. For K-12 students specifically, one-on-one tutoring has been shown to have a significant impact on overall student performance.

The TMS platform helps students connect with the right tutors at the right price. TMS is parent-friendly, allowing parents to search for tutors based on geographical location and subject. With TMS, families can schedule tutors online at the time that works best for them, even last minute. TMS makes it easy to decide which tutors might best fit a student's needs by assigning badges to tutors who are trained or certified by their institutions, such as High GPA or Tutor Essential Trained.

School districts can opt-in at no cost to have a TMS site built for their community that boasts a collection of tutors chosen specifically for their students. School districts can choose to allow local certified teachers to work as tutors on the platform. School districts can create vouchers with local or federal funds to support specific student groups by providing tutoring hours. TMS hosts a data dashboard for districts or school administrators with many customizations and tools to monitor teacher and student usage.

Tutor Matching Service has developed a 100% free online tutoring platform called GoBoard (www.GoBoard.com), the platform for all online TMS-booked sessions. GoBoard combines video conferencing, an interactive work canvas, and educational tools like a graphing calculator, an equation editor, molecular bonds creator, and much more. TMS creates unique links to session-specific GoBoard rooms, giving tutors and students easy access to a workspace that saves their progress for future sessions. With this continuous learning environment, tutors and students can build on past learning together.

For parents, this service to directly connect with state-specific college students and certified teachers is undoubtedly the least expensive way to find a high-quality tutor. There are many highly effective tutors available now on TMS for less than $15 per hour.


Tutor Matching Service is a robust and timely resource to extend academic support students and families need during the shift to virtual and hybrid learning. Through TMS, families can find and connect directly with certified and trained online tutors for one-on-one tutoring. TMS provides district and school-level customizations, including assigning local policies for teacher participation, a unique web-page for each participating school and district, Single Sign-On (SSO) integration for students, and a data portal for districts to gauge student engagement. Ask us how TMS can work with districts to facilitate volunteer or supplemental tutoring by teachers.


Online tutor list/marketplace that allows sutdents to identify tutors for both online and in person tutoring sessions, facilitates scheduling, booking, and payments.


Students in K-12 are paired with high school students who excel in math and English; they meet on a fixed weekly basis, with students meeting with the same tutor each time, ensuring that the student and tutor are able to build meaningful, high-impact relationships with one another. Prior to tutoring, tutors go through professional, research-based training on how to build grit and growth mindset skills in students while helping them with academics; they then apply these skills to their work as tutors and in doing so, gain true competency in coaching, communication and mindset development that they can use for the rest of their lives. Additionally, our tutors receive community service hours for their time and, thus, allow us to keep the fees for this high-quality, long-term personal tutoring accessible to families regardless of their income level.
