Meet GROW: The New Era in High-Impact Tutoring

May 16, 2024 7:56:50 AM

As we mark the 10th anniversary of Paper, I find myself reflecting on our journey and the profound impact we have made in schools across the nation. From pioneering 24/7 on-demand educational support to transforming how students engage with learning resources, Paper has consistently been at the forefront of educational innovation.

Today, I am proud to introduce GROW, our high-impact tutoring program designed specifically for students who can benefit the most.

GROW offers outcomes-based contracts backed by a three-point success guarantee:

  • Academic achievement: Data-driven to ensure outcomes.
  • Guaranteed staffing: Highly-trained, reliable tutors.
  • Standards aligned: Customized to curriculum and pacing.

We built GROW after countless conversations with leading superintendents and educators, gaining deep insights into the evolving needs of school districts. It became increasingly clear that while we excelled in supporting self-motivated learners, a critical gap remained in addressing the needs of students requiring more structured support.

We were deliberate in our approach to develop a solution that did not merely adapt existing products, but was meticulously crafted to address specific challenges. We spent in-person time at our pilot district, working directly with students for the first week of the program to ensure they were set up for success. This time allowed us invaluable insight into where other HIT programs fall short and how we could ensure our program was designed to achieve the most impact. 

As we continue to innovate and expand our offerings, our mission remains unchanged: to empower every student to reach their full potential. With GROW, we are taking a significant step forward in fulfilling this mission, ensuring that no student is left behind due to the lack of appropriate resources.
