Mobilizing future teachers as high-impact tutors

The Aspiring Teachers as Tutors Network (ATTN) is a national collaborative of 28 tutoring initiatives representing 15 states. Collectively, these programs share a vision for increasing the number of aspiring teachers serving as tutors for K-12 students, and improving teacher-candidates’ instructional skills through field experiences and training.

Over the 2023-24 school year, this network will:

  • Connect educational leaders mobilizing aspiring teachers as tutors through virtual and in-person convenings geared at fostering learning and resource-sharing across diverse contexts.
  • Activate our policy framework for scaling and sustaining successful initiatives by making high-impact tutoring a common opportunity for aspiring teachers prior to licensure, streamlining funding to enable more aspiring teachers to serve as tutors, and ensuring program and tutor quality so that students learn and tutors become strong teachers.
  • Improve and test high-quality tutor training modules focused on equipping tutors with the knowledge and skills to apply principles of learning science to their practice.
  • Elevate stories of teaching and learning that highlight the diverse voices, perspectives, and experiences of people and communities across the country contributing to meaningful outcomes for students through tutoring.
