FEV Tutor Webinar Alert: How to Evaluate High-Impact Tutoring Programs

Webinar for curriculum and instruction directors, principals and chief academic officers on Tuesday, March 1, 2022, at [2:00] PM EST

Emerging research has shed light on the success of high-impact, 1:1 online tutoring in addressing students’ disrupted learning. On March 1, education leaders can discover more about how the practice closes learning gaps resulting from lost instructional time.

Education writer frequent magazine contributor Annie Galvin Teich will moderate this panel discussion about supporting students with research-based, 1:1 online tutoring. On the panel will be Dr. Mark King, the instructional lead executive director of Baltimore City Public Schools (BCPS) in Baltimore, Maryland. Also participating will be Dr. Yvette Foster, the director of teaching and learning at the Richmond County School System in Georgia. The third panelist will be Dr. Christopher Devers, the co-founder of JoinIn Ventures, an organization using research and data analysis to help education companies and policymakers evaluate the effectiveness of interventions.

Drs. Devers, Foster and King will discuss their experience with comprehensive, high-impact tutoring and how it is improving student learning outcomes. Attendees will learn:

  • high-impact tutoring is and is not
  • The key elements to a successful implementation
  • How data and relationships drive the process

About the Panelists:
