Teacher-Initiated Tutoring: Integrating Pear Deck Tutor with Pear Assessment and GoGuardian Teacher

Personalized learning has consistently been linked to increases in student achievement and content mastery. Yet, the challenge of implementing personalized learning experiences within the classroom setting can seem daunting, if not insurmountable.

On-demand tutoring platforms like Pear Deck Tutor offer a way to bridge this gap, providing a means for students to receive one-on-one support – and we’re taking it a step further. 

Pear Deck Tutor now integrates with Pear Assessment and GoGuardian Teacher, so on-demand tutoring can be accessed by students and assigned by teachers, ensuring every learner has access to personalized educational experiences.

The need for teacher-initiated tutoring 

Teacher-assigned tutoring harnesses the power of technology to bridge the gap between assessment and intervention, providing students with targeted support that aligns with their individual learning paths. This method is instrumental in creating an inclusive learning environment where every student has the opportunity to succeed, regardless of their starting point. 

By enabling educators to assign specific tutoring based on real-time data and insights, we ensure that the support provided is both relevant and effective, leading to improved academic performance and enhanced student engagement.

This is the foundation of Pear Deck Tutor’s integrations. Utilizing Pear Assessment, educators can accurately gauge the impact of tutoring on student mastery levels, thanks to its comprehensive reporting capabilities. This ensures a clear visualization of students' progress following their tutoring sessions.

Moreover, GoGuardian Teacher enables educators to seamlessly continue their instruction for the majority of the class, while simultaneously facilitating personalized tutoring for 1-5 students. This unique feature allows teachers to monitor the tutoring interactions in real time, ensuring that the guidance provided is both relevant and effective. This approach not only optimizes learning outcomes for individual students but also maintains the continuity of classroom instruction, making it a win-win situation for the entire class.

By incorporating integrations with Pear Assessment and GoGuardian Teacher, we create a classroom support structure where teacher-initiated tutoring represents more than just a method for delivering personalized learning; it signifies a commitment to every student’s success.

Teachers can select up to three standards for a tutoring session, provide additional information on the student's requirements, and then share a unique link with the student for 1:1, targeted support.

Implementing 1:1 support within the classroom represents a significant leap towards personalized education, ensuring every student receives the attention and tailored instruction needed to thrive.
