About Innovations for Learning:
We believe learning how to read is a basic human right. Established in Canada in 2018 and registered as a Canadian charity in 2019, Innovations for Learning is a 27-year-old global education nonprofit whose mission is to increase beginning reading abilities in the students we serve with our TutorMate program, which combines high dosage tutoring and enrichment tutoring for struggling Kindergarten and Grade 1 students. Our specially trained Early Literacy Interventionists use our proprietary TutorMate software to provide 1:1, high dosage tutoring in phonics, sight word acquisition, fluency, and comprehension. This gives students in need more individualized instruction than the classroom teacher is able to provide.
In the first program of its kind in Canada, we also partner with local, national, and global corporations who recruit an army of virtual volunteers to provide enrichment tutoring through our custom online literacy platform. Virtual volunteer reading coaches safely contribute 30 minutes each week during the school year through reading stations we install in participating Grade 1 classrooms. In this half-hour, as remote reading buddies, they share stories and read games together helping to build confidence and reading for pleasure. TutorMate’s specialist software leverages innovative technology to deliver evidence-based, equity-focused, and individualized responses to barriers in education, leveling the playing field for at-risk children in under-resourced areas and putting them on the path to success in school and in life. Our programs are philanthropically supported, affordable, scalable and do not require teacher re-training of new curriculum. IFL represents the optimal fusion of technology, volunteerism, and corporate philanthropy to enable meaningful human connections that improve the opportunities and future of at-risk and marginalized children.
