How FEV Tutor Supports English Language Learners



The fastest and largest growing sub-population of students in the United States are English Language Learners (ELLs). According to the Pew Research Center, public school students comprise 28% of LatinX students. This is an exciting opportunity for educators to focus on boosting multilingual learners' academic achievement and learning outcomes. 

FEV Tutor is approaching this opportunity by prioritizing inclusive policies and proactive practices in the ELL community. Given technology's unprecedented barriers and limitations, more individual attention and support are needed so students can thrive. FEV helps bolster this support by taking a collaborative approach to delivering live, high-impact, 1:1 virtual instructional lessons and homework help to K-12 learners.

inclusive policies and proactive practices to support student empowerment & achievement

FEV incorporates the Universal Design for Learning Guidelines (UDL) into our curriculum, platform, and assessment design. The research-based UDL Guidelines are incorporated to create a learning environment that will reach the maximum number of students while minimizing barriers to learning. We focus on removing these barriers through multiple means of engagement, like our Language Toggle Tool, Text-To-Speech function, and more. 

Language Toggle-1

Students can toggle between 40 different languages!


FEV Tutor operates under the belief that all students and families should have access to culturally competent communications and education efforts. Our FEV Tutor platform is based on an English Immersion Model with multilingual site capabilities to guide every student with language adaptation, which accelerates learning outcomes for ELL students:
