Most states as well as the federal government have landed on tutoring as a key strategy to address unfinished learning from the pandemic.

Take math, for example. Studies have found that students lost more ground in math during the last school year than any other subject. Students and teachers desperately need support to combat fatigue and accelerate learning. How can schools implement effective math tutoring programs while balancing competing priorities in an ever-changing environment?

This webinar explores how researchers, school leaders, and educators are tackling unfinished learning head-on.

Panelists will cover:

  • Research: What the latest research says about high-dosage tutoring
  • Research vs. Reality: What hurdles make it difficult to implement effective tutoring programs
  • Best Practices: Successful models of effective tutoring programs at scale
