Personalized learning has consistently been linked to increases in student achievement and content mastery. Yet, the challenge of implementing personalized learning experiences within the classroom setting can seem daunting, if not insurmountable.

On-demand tutoring platforms like Pear Deck Tutor offer a way to bridge this gap, providing a means for students to receive one-on-one support – and we’re taking it a step further. 

We’ve integrated GoGuardian Teacher with Pear Deck Tutor, to allow for teacher-initiated tutoring. Teacher-initiated tutoring harnesses the power of technology to bridge the gap between assessment and intervention, providing students with targeted support that aligns with their individual learning paths. This method is instrumental in creating an inclusive learning environment where every student has the opportunity to succeed, regardless of their starting point.

What is Pear Deck Tutor? 

Pear Deck Tutor, part of Pear Deck Learning (a GoGuardian company), saves instructors time and supports differentiated learning. It offers first-draft reviews of writing assignments through the Writing Lab and 1:1 live tutoring sessions for step-by-step guidance. It can also help with after-school tutoring, reducing the load on educators. With diverse tutors who can connect with students and expand their worldviews, it supplements differentiated support, adapting to each student's unique learning style and language.

Implementing 1:1 support within the classroom represents a significant leap towards personalized education, ensuring every student receives the attention and tailored instruction needed to thrive. However, the path to effectively integrating such a personalized approach into the traditional classroom setting is fraught with challenges. Educators often grapple with limited time, resources, and the logistical complexities of coordinating tutoring sessions that align with each student's unique learning trajectory.

Pear Deck Tutor and GoGuardian Teacher emerge as a solution to effectively integrate 1:1 learning in every classroom. With our new integration, we are addressing the core challenges of implementing one-on-one support by streamlining the process, making it both feasible and effective within the classroom's daily operations.

Within the GoGuardian Teacher interface, educators will find a new "Assign Tutoring" button in three key areas: the Chat List, Individual Student Chat, and the 'Commands' footer. Selecting this button opens a modal that guides the teacher through setting up a tutoring session for a student. This feature allows teachers to continue their classroom session uninterrupted while ensuring individual students receive the focused, personalized instruction they require.
