Innovations for Learning

Innovations for Learning's mission is to help primary grade teachers be more effective in their pivotal task of teaching students to read.

Innovations for Learning (IFL), a national nonprofit organization, has been working for over 20 years to create digital technology programs for classrooms to improve early grade literacy. With its first launch in Chicago Public Schools, IFL now works in 25 major school districts, with a focus on under-performing schools in low-income communities. 

Our one-on-one tutoring program, TutorMate, matches volunteer tutors with first graders to boost early grade literacy proficiency. Unlike traditional on-site tutoring programs, TutorMate connects tutors and students through a remote online connection and a shared storyboard for a powerful 30-minute interactive session each week throughout the school year.

We aim to substantially increase the reading abilities of the elementary school students we serve. We want all students to become fluent readers.
