How FEV Tutor Connects Online Tutoring with NWEA MAP Growth

Posted by Caitlin Powers on Mar 16, 2018 2:56:47 PM

Overview:

Our empirical data shows that our most successful tutoring programs, that drive the largest student achievement gains, are those in which our tutors are able to closely connect 1:1 instruction to the student's core classroom. There are several ways to align 1:1 tutoring with core instructional strategies, but the most direct and effective method is to collect existing district/school benchmark assessment data. In fact, FEV Tutor recently formed a partnership with NWEA to make data sharing even easier for our partner school and districts.

Online Tutoring Success Story: Math Skill-Building at Fulton County Schools, Georgia

Posted by Caitlin Powers on Jun 27, 2017 4:10:15 PM
Overview

As a district-approved virtual tutoring provider at Fulton County Schools (FCS), FEV Tutor has partnered with several FCS Elementary and Middle Schools in the Greater Atlanta area to deliver highly-targeted, live, 1-to-1 Math and ELA Tutoring support. Each tutoring program has been planned collaboratively with school leadership and customized based on the needs of individual school sites. Our classroom-connected tutoring services have been delivered during the school day, after-school, and at-home on nights and weekends to help students to bridge skill-gaps, prepare for the Georgia Milestones assessment, support remediation, and as an in-school suspension support service for FCS students. 

In this success story we are profiling the Math student achievement gains attained by 8th grade students at Holcomb Bridge Middle School who participated in an intensive Math skill-building program ahead of the Georgia Milestones Exam. We are pleased to say that after one semester of FEV's tutoring services 70% of participating students went on to exceed their projected gains on the Georgia Milestones Math Assessment. On their seasonal STAR assessments, the average Holcomb Bridge FEV tutor participant grew from the 61st nationwide percentile to the 72nd percentile from Fall to Spring.
