Tutoring in the Time of COVID-19

We have seen tremendous educational disruptions impacting students everywhere. Yet, the education system has not served all children and youth equally. This potentially poses significant risk and gaps in education outcomes of Black and Indigenous students, particularly. While progress is being made, we can forecast these disruptions to contribute to employment and wage disparities for our future workforce.

The Tutoring in the time of COVID project explores the potential of tutoring to address some of the equity and learning gaps that have widened in the shadow of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our partners at Ryerson University’s Diversity Institute helped developed a range of resources that explore how community and school-based learning supports might improve equity.
