iEducate Announces Innovative Hybrid Learning Support

Adaptable Services Enhance Hybrid Instruction in Elementary Schools

HOUSTON, Texas – September 24, 2020 – iEducate announces the introduction of hybrid learning services that support instruction during the COVID-19 pandemic. This flexible resource for meeting evolving instructional needs during this unprecedented time is built on iEducate’s proven, long-standing model of employing and embedding college students alongside teachers in the classroom.

iEducate is partnering with schools to pair each teacher with a College Readiness Mentor who will provide live lesson support, virtual small-group tutorials, and additional remote support services depending on classroom needs. iEducate is collaborating with the Texas Region 4 Education Service Center to train the mentors on the instructional tools and strategies supporting in-person, remote or hybrid instruction. Over the summer, more than 600 college students applied to serve as College Readiness Mentors, preparing to support 7,000+ students in 2nd–5th grade classrooms during the 2020–2021 academic year.

“We at iEducate are continuously working to innovate and adapt to meet the changing needs in public education, particularly at a foundational level, where learning growth is increasingly critical in underserved communities,” said iEducate CEO Arun Gir. “We are building on our unique range of educational support services that we have provided over the past 7 years to help schools advance student learning in these uncertain times.”

“By collaborating with iEducate, we are successfully overcoming educational challenges faced by underprivileged students in our district,” said Leigha Curry, HISD School Support Officer. “Through iEducate’s 4-year partnership at Elrod Elementary while I was principal, the College Readiness Mentors effectively supported over 600 Title I students, readily adapting to the varying needs of our teachers. The results of this partnership have been extremely impactful on the learning growth of our students.”

“We are excited to collaborate with iEducate, a recognized leader with a strong track record in Texas elementary education,” said Dr. Pam Wells, Executive Director, Region 4 Education Service Center. 

“We have received positive feedback from school leaders regarding this transformational work that confirms the value that iEducate brings along with the organization’s ability to adapt and respond to our evolving face-to-face and remote learning educational needs.”

iEducate is currently offering a needs assessment to schools to identify challenges and explore the best strategies and implementation of support services. To learn about working with iEducate, e-mail contact@iEducateUSA.org.
