We've curated some resources here to share with parents and other educators who might be looking for educational content to use with the children in their lives. Below you will find links to websites for at-home learning, along with some of the resources that we've developed through our own research. If you are a volunteer tutor working with children in PK-8, we recommend contacting TutorND to get connected to their free evidence-based resources (e.g., training, coaching, assessments, lesson plans) to help you provide the best possible tutoring in reading and math. We also share links to some of our collaborators at the bottom of this page.

At-home learning

Vroom is a great free resource for parents of children in the 0-5 year old age range.

Bedtime Math is a free math app that we recommend to parents.

Cosmic Kids Yoga combines imagination and storytelling with yoga and mindfulness.

Core Knowledge Foundation provides open access to an excellent curriculum for preschool through eighth grade.

Khan Academy Kids is a free, fun learning app for children from ages 2-8.


TutorND seeks to expand access to high-impact tutoring in literacy and math for students in PK-8. It trains and supports volunteer tutors to provide evidence-based learning and enrichment programs in literacy and math.

Children in grades 3-5 and 6-8 sign up for TutorND's Alexandria Award Book Clubs!

Improving Children's Understanding of Equivalence (ICUE)

Children's understanding of math equivalence in elementary school predicts their algebra readiness in middle school. Unfortunately, most children struggle to understand this foundational concept. We designed a supplemental intervention to improve children's understanding of math equivalence, and it has been shown to work in a small, randomized experiment and in a larger efficacy study with the help of WestEd. Download the materials and watch videos explaining each of the four components of the ICUE intervention on the website!

The ICUE intervention was featured in a "What Would You Fight For?" Commercial on NBC!
