The tutors, who are teacher candidates at TU, will provide targeted, one-on-one instruction based on the individual learner’s needs using input from caregivers, teachers, and, when applicable, individualized educational plans. In addition, they will employ culturally responsive, evidence-based practices during their tutoring sessions with guidance and support from university-based faculty.

Program Information

Who are the tutors?

All tutors are Towson University students in their final years of their teacher preparation program. Tutors are enrolled in education courses that require them to gain experience working directly with students. Faculty members will provide support as candidates develop their instructional plans.

How are students placed with tutors?

Students will be matched to a pair of tutors based on subject area, grade level, and availability.

How many people will attend each tutoring session?

Tutors may work with a small group of students with similar needs if scheduling allows. Two Towson University tutors will be present at each tutoring session (as required by TU policy).

Where will tutoring sessions take place?

All tutoring sessions will take place virtually using the Zoom platform.

When will tutoring sessions take place?

You will indicate your day and time preferences when you complete the tutoring application. Sessions will take place at a time that is mutually convenient for the student and tutors.

How will I be able to communicate with the tutor?

Your student’s tutor will reach out via email to learn more about your student. The tutor will provide a written update after each session.
