Cignition, Inc. is proud to partner with educational leaders across the country to offer insight into effective high-impact tutoring implementation. In this edLeader Panel, attendees will hear from decision makers at the district and state levels on why they believe high-impact tutoring is so invaluable for academic intervention. They’ll also:

  • Learn how to integrate tutoring sessions into existing school schedules
  • Understand strategies for selecting students to participate in tutoring
  • Hear how differentiated instruction is the key to results that teachers and parents hope for
  • Review funding sources for high-impact tutoring

Because Cignition is able to utilize a group model (up to four students for every one tutor), the total cost incurred by schools/districts is significantly reduced while also encouraging quality student-to-student interaction. Attendees will leave the session equipped with practical tools and strategies to implement high-impact tutoring within an MTSS framework effectively.

Whether you’re an administrator seeking to boost academic achievement or an educator looking for innovative teaching strategies, this edLeader Panel will provide valuable insights and actionable solutions for grades K-12. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
