Why 1-1 Tutoring?

How Personalized Learning Moves The Needle

At Yup, we know that all students have the potential to succeed with the right resources and guidance. Leveraging technology, students no longer need to feel the pressure to conform to learning styles that don’t fit them.

Academic Studies through the Years

Our Evolving Understanding of the Value of Tutoring


Raising Test Scores

A study out of Harvard University finds that students who were individually mentored in math outperformed their classroom-taught peers by 200 percent on standardized state math assessments


Covering More Material

A University of Chicago study finds that students who received tutoring could learn up two additional years’ worth of math material than their peers who didn’t receive tutoring


Solving the Differentiation Problem

What is Differentiated Instruction?

Differentiated instruction, also known as differentiation, is a framework or philosophy for effective teaching that involves providing all students, regardless of ability or learning needs, the tools to access material.  By considering varied learning needs, teachers can develop personalized instruction so that all children in the classroom can learn effectively.

How does Yup bridge the differentiation gap?

The one-on-one nature of the Yup tutoring model naturally includes a high level of differentiation.  All of the sessions cater to the individual needs of the student.  Tutors start their session by assessing the student’s level of understanding and then use this to tailor their instruction.
