Welcome to Educational Tutorial Services!

Since 1996, Educational Tutorial Services has had two primary goals: cater to the foster care system and provide high quality private tutoring programs to students of all ages. We know that when foster care children move from home to home throughout the course of their life, they experience an ever-changing academic situation due to different teachers, curricula, and atmosphere. In turn, many children have survived traumatic situations that greatly affect the way they learn. Many schools lack the skills to adequately assist foster children, so Educational Tutorial Services has stepped forward to fill this niche. We collaborate with both schools and agencies to make sure that foster children are being taken care of. We are equally committed to providing customized academic tutoring and test preparation programs to help students of all ages succeed. Our goal at Educational Tutorial Services is to make sure that children have the attention they need in order to succeed in an academic environment. Learn more.
