ANNOUNCING A NEW VIRTUAL TUTORING MODEL:

We're happy to announce our newest virtual tutoring model: Blend & Extend! FEV created this new tutoring model after speaking to many of our partners who were looking for a way to offer their students scheduled targeted tutoring during academic programming and offer students live, 1-to-1 support outside of the school day for homework help, course support, and more.

Why offer Blend & Extend Tutoring? 

Partners enjoy our new Blend & Extend approach to virtual tutoring because it enables schools and districts to offer their entire student body live, 1-to-1 support both during the school day and outside of traditional school day programming on evenings, nights, and weekends. Schools and districts can now deliver students 2 complementary academic tutoring models to support the diverse needs of all student populations, from struggling learners to more advanced and gifted students.
