High-Dosage Tutoring from Tutor.com

Education services giant The Princeton Review, in partnership with its affiliate company Tutor.com, one of the world’s largest and most innovative online tutoring organizations, has launched the latest cool tool —  High-Dosage Tutoring, a rigorously researched solution for accelerating student learning.

Based on data-informed design principles identified by researchers at Brown University’s Annenberg Institute and the University of Virginia, the company’s High-Dosage Tutoring program features as its hallmarks:

  • 3+ times/week frequency: Tutoring has been shown to be maximally effective when it is delivered intensively, in high doses.
  • Small-group instruction: Groups of two to four students allow for instruction that is personalized, scalable, and cost-effective.
  • Assessment-based learning: Ongoing assessments enable tutors to tailor instruction to support student learning.
  • Curriculum-driven materials: High-quality curricula—from The Princeton Review® or K–12 partners—reinforce in-school learning.
  • Consistent, relational learning: The tutor–student relationship enhances accelerated learning and promotes individualized instruction.


With a combined 65-year track record of helping students excel academically, The Princeton Review and Tutor.com have brought together their core strengths to design High-Dosage Tutoring programs that leverage the companies’ comprehensive curricula, proven student engagement strategies, and the effective tutoring methodology that has helped learners succeed for nearly 25 million sessions. 

Delivered online in the companies’ updated proprietary virtual classroom within the award-winning LEO™ platform, High-Dosage Tutoring promises to help K–12 schools and districts close knowledge gaps widened by the pandemic, and to help students make significant, accelerated learning gains. The offering also supports teachers, who can refer students for High-Dosage Tutoring, review students’ Personalized Learning Plans, and track ongoing progress in the dedicated Teacher Dashboard.

This fall, partner K–12 schools and districts are launching High-Dosage Tutoring in algebra, a gateway subject in which, according to NAEP assessment data, student scores have declined at the greatest rate in decades. The acute need for accelerated learning in algebra is borne out in Algebra Trends, a Tutor.com white paper that details the help-seeking trends the company has experienced in the last several years.

Part of a multi-tiered system of support, High-Dosage Tutoring complements other interventions that K–12 schools and districts adopt to provide effective, equitable, scalable support for students. Additional offerings available from the companies include 24/7, on-demand tutoring in 200+ subjects, drop-off writing review services, and The Princeton Review test prep.
