Tutoring across six regional hubs
The Illinois Tutoring Initiative is one of four state pillars designed in conjunction with the Illinois P-20 Council’s development of a Learning Renewal Resource Guide to support the learning and social/emotional well-being of students in the wake of the pandemic. It features:
Collaboration between institutions of higher education and school districts of need in six regions across the state;
High-impact tutoring practices with focused 1:1 and small-group tutoring;
Great tutors for K-12 students from among teacher education candidates, higher education students, and other community partners;
A combination of in-person and online tutoring regionally; and
Training, support, and supervision of tutors.
