Paper is different from typical academic support services

Promotes educational equity

Learning help that’s accessible to every student regardless of socioeconomic status, scheduling challenges, “extra help stigma,” or any other roadblock. You’ll level the playing field for all students to succeed.

Delivers personalized learning

1:1 support from expert tutors. Students get help where, when, how, and as much as they need it. So they can catch up or get ahead—with their classroom teacher in the loop every step of the way.

Scales to serve all students

Academic support that isn’t constrained by unmanageable demand, the time of day, unpredictable costs, or the availability of teachers, parents, or tutors. You can deploy support to all learners—at a fixed cost.
