What We Do

Inside each student lives a story waiting to unfold. We know every student is capable of shaping a story of success-in school, and in life. But not every student has had a fair chance to see it.

To achieve this, Saga seeks to establish high-impact, in-school-day math tutoring as an integrated part of a student's education, as a proven response to accelerating educational equity.

Our research shows our program works-not only to raise math scores but to foster the confidence and sense of belonging that underpin all academic success. As a trusted leader in building powerful tutoring programs, Saga provides the resources and tools to enable all districts to take advantage of our expertise. Saga has the evidence and experience to know what works.

The Work and Why it Matters 

Educational inequity doesn’t have to be a fact. We know every student is capable of earning success in school and in life, but often do not receive the individualized support they deserve. Implementing academic interventions that address the inequities faced by historically marginalized students continues to be one of our nation’s most urgent challenges. While educators, and students alike, have experienced many unprecedented challenges recently, educators continue to report that their top concern is students falling behind in math. This concern is heightened for educators in high-poverty districts who predominantly teach Black or Latinx students.

At Saga Education, we leverage the best of technology and human instruction to maximize learning, to improve student confidence, and to help students feel connected to a caring adult in school. Now more than ever, we need talented, caring, and capable people, committed to supporting our students in their academic and social development.
