Why choose Paper's Tutoring Program?

Nearly every option for academic support runs up against the same limitations: equity, cost, and scale. Paper's tutoring solution was built to move past these roadblocks.

Districts face many challenges to providing high-dosage tutoring 

Unmanageable
demand

Every learner needs extra help from time to time, and demand for tutoring is soaring across communities. But logistical hurdles stand in the way of sustaining tutoring programs that serve every student—especially at the time, place, and volume needed.


Limited
support

With usage-based tutoring, it’s tough to predict demand and budget accurately. The result could be runaway costs and less availability for students needing support. Unlimited tutoring means districts easily stay within budget, all while saying "yes" to every student asking for help.


Staff
shortages

Districts across the nation face alarming staff shortages. Finding, hiring, and retaining after-school educators skilled across a range of subjects—with the training to assist students with a plethora of needs—is a daunting task for any administrator.


How does Paper stack up against typical academic support options?

Paper delivers unlimited 24/7 tutoring  at scale
