NEW YORK (PRWEB) January 18, 2018
Leading edtech company Clark announced today the launch of their inaugural news digest, The Syllabus. Distributed daily, The Syllabus is the first-of-its-kind newsletter designed to share news, information, and relevant links with tutors, educators, and policymakers.
Founded by Megan O’Connor and Sam Gimbel, Clark is a revolutionary mobile tool for tutors and administrative software solution for tutoring centers. Since its inception in early 2017, Clark has gained recognition as pioneering software that brings transparency to the tutoring and private education space. Now, with the impending launch of their content platform, Clark is providing the tools, tips, and advice tutors need to scale their businesses.
As the demand for personalized education becomes more and more apparent, the need for tutors has increased significantly. The “no excuses” policy, adopted by Charter Schools nationwide underscores this point, highlighting increased scores and success rates of students due in large part to mandated high-dosage tutoring.
Further, recent research has shown that tutoring programs that incorporate research-based elements produce improvements in reading achievement; and tutoring can also lead to improvements in self confidence about reading, motivation for reading, and behavior, both among tutees and among peer or cross-age tutors. But for tutors to be as successful as possible, they need to be equipped with the latest information.
“There is a gaping hole in the market for professional development for tutors. We noticed that despite the critical role tutors play in our education system, there is no place where they can find content and resources geared specifically to the tutoring industry. The Syllabus is meant to fill that gap,” says O’Connor. “There are so many stories about education, policy changes, new methods, new technology – it can seem overwhelming to follow it all. The Syllabus is an easily digestible way to consume the best, most helpful stories in the education space every morning, making it easier for tutors to be even better at what they do.”
