About Us
Areas of Focus: 

The mission of our nonprofit is to substantially increase beginning reading abilities of the students we serve in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.


We focus on supporting the efforts of K-1 classroom teachers with our research-based supplemental intervention program, TeacherMate. We bring into K-1 classrooms a specially trained Early Literacy Interventionist to work 1:1 with struggling students. Our Early Literacy Interventionists leverage the power of our proprietary beginning reading technology created through 25 years of research and development.

Our TutorMate program provides 1:1 online tutoring for students who are learning to read fluently.  We partner with over 200 major corporations to recruit a corps of over 6,000 volunteers who read with students online weekly during the school year.  

Why Work For Us?: 

Innovations For Learning is a non-profit with over 20 years of proven success in improving children’s literacy in over 30 districts in the US, Canada, and the UK.  We use technology in the classroom, in online tutor sessions, and in the home to give young kids the skills to read at grade level.  Now more than ever, remote tutoring and instruction are critical to a student’s success.  

We aren’t a sleepy, soft-spoken non-profit - we are driven to make a dent in the universe and have a profound and positive impact on children’s lives.

We have a flexible, supportive, and collaborative work environment, with all the best development tools and frameworks.

Come join our dynamic team, and make a difference in children’s lives.  It all starts with literacy!
