An easy way to engage and give back.

Each volunteer tutor is paired with a first grade student for remote 30-minute tutoring sessions once per week throughout the school year. The volunteer can tutor from their office, at home, or wherever there is internet access. During the session, the tutor and student read stories together online and play games that build student word knowledge.

Schools Served

Innovations for Learning serves 30 US school districts plus schools in London and Toronto.
