At FEV Tutor, we do out best to make an impact with the students that use our live, 1:1 online tutoring services. At the end of the 17-18 Academic Year, FEV Tutor held a testimonial contest open to all students who participated in our tutoring. We received a lot of feedback, and it's meaningful to us that we are making a difference in students lives. Take a look and see what some students had to say about FEV.
Did you know that FEV Tutor has an ongoing Rewards Program? We understand how valuable classroom time is and we hold ourselves accountable for making the most of students' time. To help everyone stay on track and recognize students and teachers for putting in the time necessary to make an impact on student achievement, we've created our own Rewards Program.
At the end of each school year, FEV Tutor ran a testimonial contest open to all teachers and administrators at our partner school sites. We believe it’s important to not only know how our students feel about our services but also the educators implementing tutoring in their classroom. We were happy to hear such positive reviews, but don't take our word for it, take a look at some of our favorite submissions below.

FEV Tutor was recently featured in an article on eSchool News written by Dr. Martinrex Kedziora, Superintendent of Moreno Valley Unified School District in California. In the article, "Here's how we made data usable for our teachers," Dr. Kedziora details how his district not only collects the right data but also connects interventions to data to help students learn.
In May, FEV Tutor was pleased to travel down to Johns Hopkins School of Education to participate in the Maryland Assistive Technology Network (MATN) Spring Institute! The conference was very well attended with educators from across the state of Maryland and Delaware as well.
Moreno Valley Unified School District (MVUSD), a diverse Title I district located in the San Bernardino-Riverside Metropolitan Area of California, historically struggled in Math. With the changing rigor of California Common Core State Standards, students throughout the district were falling further behind. Over three quarters of students district-wide were scoring below proficiency on the California Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) assessment. District administrators knew they had to address Math achievement head-on. They would need to think outside of the box to get students additional supports to keep them on track to fulfill California A-G Requirements and place them on a College and Career Ready path.
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.
FEV Tutor is pleased to announce our partnership with NWEA, the leading not-for profit provider of cutting-edge assessment solutions. We have partnered to help school districts use MAP Growth assessment results to personalize instruction and intervention for each student through 1:1, live online tutoring solutions.
In November FEV Tutor was pleased to present at the EdTechTeacher Summit with Chris Shearer, Principal of Holcomb Bridge Middle School (HBMS) of Fulton County Schools. Principal Shearer and FEV's Director of Academics, Daniel Hebert, lead a session titled: Personalized Learning - A Story About Collaboration and Changing Outcomes for Students. As a part of the presentation, FEV Tutor premiered our latest Success Story video which showcases the impact FEV's tutoring had on HBMS struggling Math students and includes feedback from Holcomb Bridge administrators, teachers, and students. We've included the video in the blog post below!
