Education shouldn't be limited to the classroom. FEV Tutor’s mission is to make high-quality, online learning options available to all students at all times. We connect students with 1-to-1 live professional academic support when they need it, regardless of their core learning environment. Our personalized tutoring services are meant to be an extension of the student’s teacher, without any of the time or resource constraints of the traditional classroom. We are committed to delivering solutions to K-12 schools, districts and families to drive measurable student gains and stimulate academic growth.
It is our core belief that every student deserves real-time, engaging 1-to-1 instruction designed to meet their individual needs. Prior to launching any new program, we collaborate with those who know the students best – their teachers, administrators, parents and family members. These stakeholders provide important student insight and also determine the goals of our tutoring services.
A strong instructional foundation anchors all FEV Tutor programs and is threaded through to each live tutoring session. We adapt time-tested classroom best practices and utilize online content and lessons designed by educators specifically for our online tutoring platform. Our tutors are professionals and have a minimum of a 4-year bachelor degree in their content area, a minimum of 2 years teaching/tutoring experience, and go through an extensive training “boot camp” on the nuances of working in an online tutoring atmosphere. Our tutors are not only heavily trained, but they are also familiar with the students they work with due to our customized programs.
To further enhance the quality of our tutoring, we rely on our educational partnerships to offer research-based assessment items, online content, and interactive activities inside tutoring sessions.
To set students up for success, we develop Individualized Learning Plans driven by data. We collect formative data on student progress on a weekly basis and continually share these updates with teachers, administrators and families. This ongoing data share not only holds FEV Tutor accountable for moving the needle on tangible student achievement, but it also allows stakeholders to make informed decisions for continued student growth.
FEV Tutor was founded in 2008 by Anirudh Baheti, chairman and CEO of the Focus Group, after noting that most online learning opportunities offered to K-12 students were primarily self-paced software programs, built for students to work by themselves on the computer with no human interaction. While there are inherent positive benefits to these programs and products, he understood that the more 1-on-1 time a student spends with a teacher, the more the student would improve academically.
Mr. Baheti tapped into his previous experience of blending innovative technology with high-quality, scalable services to launch FEV Tutor with Ryan Patenaude, who comes from an educational background and helped Baheti build his previous venture , Focus Infomatics. Together, the pair sought to bring together a team of current and former educators and business innovators to develop FEV Tutor’s innovative approach to supplemental tutoring services.
The result is an approach to tutoring that seeks to marry the best qualities of face-to-face instruction with the convenience and flexibility of an online platform, alleviating some of the common pain points existing in traditional tutoring models.
