Our supervisors are experts with backgrounds in psychology, literacy, cognition, and education with additional ongoing training to help our teams be at the forefront of the field. They’re responsible for matching students with their ideal tutor after assessing the student’s cognitive, developmental, and academic needs, as well as their personality and interests. Supervisors also oversee and mentor our tutors in order to help them learn and grow, and to ensure our students are receiving the most effective interventions.
