What is High-Dosage Tutoring?

Catapult Learning’s High-Dosage Tutoring solutions are designed to accelerate learning in literacy and math for all K-12 students. A comprehensive, integrated approach that supports the whole student and optimizes academic outcomes, High-Dosage Tutoring reinforces key skills in the current grade’s core content and provides additional supports when necessary. Studies show that students who experienced learning acceleration models had better outcomes versus those who only experienced remediation.

High-Dosage Tutoring Is:

Our Approach

Our solutions work by activating existing and relevant knowledge, building prerequisite skills, and reinforcing foundational skills. Catapult Learning’s High-Dosage Tutoring program utilizes our Acceleration Framework — a research-based approach that includes:

Academic assessments pinpoint areas of strength and areas in which students need support

Using diagnostic data, our instructors create individualized academic and social-emotional learning goals to guide instruction as well as establish a baseline from which to monitor growth

Tutors provide personalized and targeted support aligned to each student’s individualized plan

Ongoing assessments to monitor progress, allowing real-time differentiation to maximize growth and achievement

Our High-Dosage Tutoring curriculum, AccelerateLiteracy and AccelerateMath, provides intensive, research-based grade-level support with a focus on high-impact prerequisite content and skills that benefits all students.

Flexible Program Design & Implementation

Session length and frequency can be adjusted to fit your goals. We recommend at least 3 sessions/week, and a minimum of 45 minutes/session.

Frequently Asked Questions

In a variety of ways. High-dosage tutoring is accessible to all students, not just those requiring remedial instruction. Additionally, high-dosage tutoring is individualized for each student and works to activate relevant knowledge, build prerequisite knowledge, and simultaneously integrate new knowledge. High-dosage tutoring sessions also occur more frequently than traditional tutoring.

For maximum effectiveness, it’s recommended that students receive high-dosage tutoring up to five times per week at 45 minutes per session.

Studies have shown that supplemental intervention plus high-dosage tutoring can lead to more than one year of academic progress in a single school year.

There is no set timetable for a high-dosage tutoring program, though many schools offer it both throughout the school year and during summer learning programs. Because each school–and each student within those schools–has different learning needs, you can customize the length of your high-dosage tutoring program to fit your specific needs.

Literacy/Reading and Math are two specific areas where high-dosage tutoring can greatly accelerate learning.

Supplemental Intervention Services

High-Dosage Tutoring is most effective for at-risk students when combined with supplemental intervention services, like Catapult Learning’s AccelerateMath and AccelerateLiteracy intervention programs. Our supplemental services can lead to significant growth to close opportunity gaps over the course of a single school year.
