High-Dosage and On-Demand Tutoring 2023-01-24T13:37:05-07:00

The New Mexico Public Education Department is offering a variety of partnerships with Saga Education, The New Teacher Project (TNTP) and Paper to provide FREE tutoring supports in an effort to increase student achievement, decrease student absenteeism, and create more equitable outcomes for our New Mexico students. All of the tutoring supports being offered by the public education department are aimed at closing the achievement gap between our most at-risk students.

High-Dosage Tutoring (HDT) Supports

Research shows that when students are provided at minimum three classroom-aligned sessions per week for at least 45min per session students are 50% more likely to pass their content area courses, experience reduced absenteeism and higher graduation rates, and an increased sense of belonging in their school community.

  • Within this bucket we offer FREE planning and technical support for schools and districts to embed high-dosage tutoring in the school day through a Grow-Your-Own model with Saga Education and The New Teacher Project (TNTP)
    • Are you a district or school that wants to embed HDT into the school day? We can help! Please reach out to: kenneth.stowe@ped.nm.gov
  • We also offer direct, virtual high-dosage tutoring supports to any student in Math and Language Arts. Tutors are certified teachers, retired teachers, educational assistants, substitutes, college students, military members and college graduates. The student-to-tutor ratio for all sessions is 4:1
    • Spring ’23:
      • Algebra I HDT (flyer): The NMPED has trained tutors to support Algebra I students across New
        Mexico through virtual tutoring sessions. NMPED will manage all aspects of the project to include the planning,
        organizing, scheduling, and management of tutoring sessions.

        • Student Commitment: Each student commits to participating in at least three 45 minute sessions each week for 14 weeks.
        • Time: These sessions are held after school (4-9pm) and on weekends (9am-12pm).
