The purpose of tutoring programs is to improve the academic achievement of students through increasing their knowledge and skills, school attendance, and time devoted to schoolwork by providing additional, special, or remedial academic instruction and guidance. Included are both tutoring programs sponsored by school systems and those sponsored by other, nonprofit, organizations (Urban Institute and The Center for What Works).

Questions your program should answer:

  1. To What Extent Are You Reaching the Young People You Intend to Serve?
  2. Are Students Receiving "Enough" Services?
  3. To What Extent are You Providing Intended Services at High Levels of Quality?
