School Districts working on Race to the Top District (RTTT-D) applications know that a key component is personalized learning environments that prepare students for college and careers. As a leader in personalized, one-to-one learning that improves student achievement and teacher learning, Tutor.com is a strong partner that can give your school district’s plan a distinct edge.
Districts that work with Tutor.com get custom, personalized learning environments specific to their students’ needs and instructional tools and support for teachers. Here’s how we support the RTTT-D requirements:
- College and Career Readiness: Tutor.com custom programs provide individual student data that tracks each student’s progress. We supplement reporting with training and ongoing program support for students.
- Pursue Rigorous Coursework: Several schools have selected Tutor.com to customize an AP program for their students. Students find that access to individual support focused on their needs throughout the school year help them learn faster and be successful in the most challenging courses. In a survey of 1,000 high school students, 86% said they’d be more likely to take AP courses if they had access to Tutor.com.
- Improve teaching and leading: Tutor.com com offers MyLivePD™ Online Coaching Service. This is the only live, online professional development program that has been proven to make an immediate impact on student learning. 90% of teachers connecting to Tutor.com’s instructional coaches reported they used the information within one week in their classrooms. This level of support accelerates teachers’ learning allowing them to implement new practices successfully and adapt content for different student learning styles.
Tutor.com has been creating customized learning programs for more than a decade for school districts, statewide after-school homework help programs and 24/7 academic support for U.S. Military Families through the Department of Defense.
