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.

A Yancy Life brings an innovative blended math, science, and reading assistance program that combines classroom instruction with computer-aided learning.

While each student is given log in credentials, and Study Island is, in itself, a full on-line instructional program for individual learning, student use of Study Island is limited during daily instruction. Instead, Yancy staff uses Study Island lessons and assessments for the basis of their primary mode of instruction -- rich face-to-face 1:1 and small group instruction. The Texas version of Study Island is aligned to the standards in Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). Subjects targeted for this program are the Reading strand of English and Language Arts, Science and Mathematics, for grades 1-12. In its instruction for pre-kindergarten level, Yancy will focus primarily on the Emergent Literacy (Reading) and Mathematics skill domains, from the Texas Pre-Kindergarten Guidelines.
