The strategies we utilize to achieve student success in our Academic Tutoring Services include ongoing collaboration and partnership with the school site, pre- and post-testing using standardized academic assessment tools, individual goals and objectives developed for each student’s learning needs, supplemental materials to increase skills in English Language Arts, Mathematics, and project based literacy, instructional decisions made on data collected by the tutor and reported to the school, and progress monitoring and documentation recorded for all sessions.
Our tutors possess a varying level of education background based on the needs of our clients. The minimum qualification includes an associate’s degree or units towards a bachelor’s degree. Many of our tutors have completed their bachelor’s degree or other advanced degrees. Students are matched to tutors based on academic need as well as geographic area, if in-person. All tutors have passed DOJ and FBI background checks.
Our Tutors are trained on Trauma-Informed Practices in Schools (TIPS) to support the social emotional well-being of students during tutoring sessions. All tutors have received extensive training on COVID-19 safety procedures and have been equipped with the recommended PPE. TES tutors can work with students from Pre-K through Adult.
What are the Benefits of Tutoring?
Even the best students can run into a troublesome course of study and could benefit from some time with a tutor. Our tutors work with students to master coursework through homework assistance and by diving into areas in need of extra support. Prior to beginning services with a TES Tutor, students are given a comprehensive assessment to identify areas of need. Based on the results of that assessment, our tutors work with the student and families to develop measurable goals for learning. Through weekly sessions with the tutor, students work towards mastery of those goals, which ultimately leads them to higher grades in their core studies.

TES’ approach to Tutoring
How do we make therapy fun?
TES Tutors engage their students by using a variety of computer-based and interactive curriculum to complement their studies in the classroom.
How do we work as a team?

In order to make tutoring a success, family members can provide valuable information for learning. Moms and dads and siblings can learn alongside the student and use those skills to keep learning going even after the session has ended.
FAQs About Tutoring
How do you explain Tutoring to a child?
Tutors are extra teachers that can help you with your school work after school.
What is an example of Tutoring Services?
Jasmine came to us with poor grades in her high school algebra class. Her teacher was great at auditory directions, but Jasmine needed someone to break lessons down and engage her tactile and visual strengths. Through videos and manipulatives, her tutor showed her how to turn the teacher’s directions into real life puzzles and games. By the end of the semester, Jasmine had turned her D into a high A and other students were asking her for help. Jasmine did great in her class and her parents were thrilled with Jasmine’s increased self-esteem.
How can Tutoring help my child?
If your child is struggling in a class and you have tried everything you can think of, a tutor can often be the answer to help your child succeed. Many parents have discovered that their own children will work wonders for others, but when it comes to working with their parents, conflict will often arise. Having a skilled tutor to step in and help, can reduce household stressors, increase self-esteem and increase test scores and grades.
How many times a week do kids need Tutoring Services?
Most students find success when meeting with their tutors 2-3 times a week for an hour at a time. Sometimes, a longer session can help with upcoming exams, but most students tend to hit their plateau at an hour.
What is the most important thing a Tutor can do for a student?
A great tutor will not only help students through a rough assignment, they will give them skills that can be applied to future assignments. A great tutor can take a failing student and discover where the student is lacking a skill and fill in the gaps to allow for new learning to take place.
What age should you start Tutoring?
Tutoring can start as early as Kindergarten. There is no age at which it is better to start. Tutoring should begin when the student and/or their family feel that additional assistance would be beneficial.
