As the pandemic nears the one-year mark, many parents and educators are concerned about measuring students’ learning loss and providing fair grading and assessments. After the time missed from school closures and the understandable learning curve adapting to remote learning, one thing is clear: the pandemic’s impact is far-reaching and will likely exacerbate issues for special student populations.
As the year comes to a close, we have much to reflect on as a company and as individuals. It has been a challenging year for sure, but we learn and grow through our struggles, and we find strength and triumphs in unexpected places. When this pandemic hit, we were all left wondering, “what now?” collectively questioning how to face the challenges that seemed insurmountable at the time. I’m so proud of and encouraged by our team and network of K-12 education partners, who, in the face of chaos and uncertainty, rallied around a common goal of helping students reach their academic potential no matter the circumstances. It’s the day-to-day moments in working together, collaborating and problem-solving, and watching each and every team member have such a positive attitude and growth mindset that inspires me. As our marketing specialist, Isabella Cigna, reflects, “It’s great to make plans and set goals, but - as we’ve all learned - life doesn’t always pan out the way we expect. So a great quality to have is to be able to make changes on the fly and be prepared to adapt to whatever happens.”
Due to the spread of COVID-19, we understand that for schools/district to make sure virtual learning tools and technology available for students has been challenging. Not all students and families have access to the technology needed for distance learning (laptops/desktops/WiFi). At FEV Tutor, we believe in providing equitable access to all learners alike to continue accelerating academic growth. We have developed two remote learning apps available on the iPad and iPhone.

Here at FEV Tutor, we are truly inspired by K-12 School & Districts around the country and their ability to adapt, innovate, and rapidly transition to Remote & Distance Learning during the current national crisis. We recognize the circumstances have been constantly evolving and new research from NWEA’s Collaborative for Student Growth Research Center suggests that students heading back to school next fall will be impacted by an academic skill loss (COVID-19 slide) that will require planning strategies to bridge these skill gaps.
