Private tutoring for students can cost thousands upon thousands of dollars per year.

But economist Jonathan Guryan co-authored a study that found tutoring improves student learning and graduation rates.

He studied a pilot tutoring program in Chicago Public Schools that helped students struggling at math. One tutor met with two students at a time, so the tutor could match the students at their individual math level.

Guryan wants to expand the program nationally.
