Addressing Learning Loss

Free Webinar will Focus on How to Evaluate High Impact Tutoring Programs

With school districts across the nation increasingly considering tutoring programs and apps to help students overcome pandemic learning loss, online tutoring platform FEV Tutor has announced a free webinar, “How to Evaluate High-Impact Tutoring Programs,” for K–12 curriculum decision-makers, administrators, and academic officers.

The March 1 webinar will include a panel discussion with four education leaders discussing emerging research on the success of high-impact 1:1 online tutoring in overcoming the learning losses suffered by U.S. students during the disruptions of COVID-19, according to a news release.

Attendees will learn what high-impact tutoring is and is not; the key elements to successful implementation; and how data and relationships drive the process. The event is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. EST on Tuesday, March 1.

Education writer Annie Galvin Teich will moderate; on the panel will be Mark King, instructional lead and executive director of Baltimore City Public Schools; Yvette Foster, director of teaching and learning at Richmond County School System in Georgia; and Christopher Devers, an assistant professor, researcher, and co-founder of JoinIn Ventures, an organization using research and data analysis to help education companies and policymakers evaluate the impact of interventions. The panelists will discuss their experiences with comprehensive, high-impact tutoring and how it is improving student learning outcomes.

There is no cost to join the webinar, but advance registration is required. For more information or to register, visit
