Edmentum Partners with Littera Education to Deliver Personalized High-Impact Summer Tutoring Programs

Programs for Foundational Reading, Algebra Readiness, and Middle & High School Course Support address critical academic transition points

Bloomington, MN (April 12, 2023) — Edmentum has recently partnered with Littera Education to provide educators and students with new high-impact summer tutoring programs for Foundational Reading (K-3), Algebra Readiness (grades 8-9), and Middle and High School Course Support (grades 6-12). In each program, students will experience the individualized care and attention of a Littera virtual tutor while completing lessons from a variety of Edmentum solutions including Apex Courses, Tutorials, Courseware and Exact Path.

High-impact tutoring, which is one-on-one or in a small group, relationship-based, data-informed, and aligned to classroom instruction, has been shown to have a positive effect on learning outcomes.

“Many students need a deeper level of support to help get them back to grade level, particularly coming out of the pandemic,” said Jamie Candee, President & CEO of Edmentum. “High-impact tutoring helps students in a highly individualized and targeted manner, particularly in the way we’ve developed these summer programs with Littera.”

These new programs simplify summer support for school districts by providing turnkey options for one-on-one and small group tutoring at school or home, scheduled any time of day. In each session, tutors progress through lessons aligned to student needs as determined by diagnostic assessments or district data. The lesson content that tutors use with students comes from Edmentum’s suite of proven, research-backed learning products. Third-party tier II ESSA evidence confirms that students who use Exact Path, for example, improve assessment scores and demonstrate positive, statistically significant growth. Additionally, a tier II ESSA study showed students who completed Apex Courses performed as well as or better than students participating in traditional classroom instruction on MAP Growth tests.

Students will experience a high-quality audio/video experience with a consistent tutor so they build trust and rapport. This relationship is critical to ensure success, especially at these key academic transition points that predict college and career readiness.

“Combining high-quality content with the support of a caring tutor is a powerful combination for students,” said Justin Serrano, CEO of Littera.

Rebecca Montgomery, assistant superintendent at Freehold Township School District in New Jersey, partnered with Littera to provide Exact Path virtual tutoring to 200 students last summer, with great success. “Our Littera summer program was meaningful and successful. We received positive feedback from parents and saw improvements in students,” said Montgomery.
