Miami University Offering Free Virtual Tutoring for Foster and Adoptive Youth

Great tutoring can help students master key concepts and gain valuable learning skills, while also boosting self-confidence along the way. But quality tutoring is not always affordable, easily accessible, or even available to many students.


To address these challenges, Miami University recently launched Miami University Learning Lab which pairs pre-service teachers with K-12 students across the state to provide high-dosage, evidence-based tutoring in literacy and math.

Offered through the College of Education, Health, and Society (EHS), and made possible by a donation from the Christine and Mark Johnson Literacy Partnership and a grant from the Ohio Department of Education, the Learning Lab is available for both face-to-face and virtual settings.


Among the EHS programs included within the Learning Lab is Fostering Reading. Fostering Reading pairs college students who are teacher education majors with foster and adoptive youth from around Ohio for virtual tutoring. The tutoring offered will be 3 hours per week to kids K-5 via virtual format, and will include research-based assessments and lessons.
