ABC30 News: California districts invest in 24/7 high-dosage tutoring
Predictable fixed costs for school districts
Budgeting accurately is critical and very challenging for school administrators. Extra help can have large variable costs that throw even the most tightly controlled budget out of whack—and place a hard cap on the number of hours students can be helped.
Unlimited live help on demand
Learners don't know in advance when they're going to get stuck on a problem or struggle with a concept. They should be able to get help in the moment so they don't waste time or get frustrated and discouraged.
Detailed writing feedback
Providing writing help and feedback is painstaking work. Most teachers don't have the bandwidth to review an assignment more than once. But learners need timely, frequent feedback spanning grammar, structure, and style to develop strong writing skills.
10 pm might be the only time a learner can study for their test or do their homework. But when they get stuck, they're all alone. Students need help—and deserve it—any time of day (or night) they're willing to put in the work.
Paper is different from typical academic support services
Promotes educational equity
Learning help that’s accessible to every student regardless of socioeconomic status, scheduling challenges, “extra help stigma,” or any other roadblock. You’ll level the playing field for all students to succeed.
Delivers personalized learning
1:1 support from expert tutors. Students get help where, when, how, and as much as they need it. So they can catch up or get ahead—with their classroom teacher in the loop every step of the way.
Scales to serve all students
Academic support that isn’t constrained by unmanageable demand, the time of day, unpredictable costs, or the availability of teachers, parents, or tutors. You can deploy support to all learners—at a fixed cost.
Expanded learning opportunities
