SES - Supplemental Educational Services

Professional Tutors of America is an approved provider for Supplemental Educational Services (SES) throughout California, Washington, Iowa, and Montana.  This federal legislation provides funding to under-achieving schools. Our company contracts instructional services for over 300 school districts.

Our tutoring services are always One-to-One with the student, and our tutors will always come to the student's home, or local library, if preferred. Our tutors are all highly qualified Credentialed Teachers and College Graduates. We offer convenient scheduling, seven days a week. The parents choose the times that are convenient for their child. We also have bilingual staff and tutors available for several different languages.

All of our tutors are required to have been fingerprinted through the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, with a clear report indicating that they have not been convicted of a violent or serious felony.  They must also provide a clearance from a doctor or medical clinic indicating that they are not a carrier of contagious Tuberculosis.

Our program's focus is on student development and improvement of Reading, Language Arts, Mathematics and Science through the domains of listening, speaking, reading and writing.

To begin our program, we administer a pre-test to obtain the student's strengths and weaknesses. Our unique testing module generates a Suggested Learning Objectives Report which organizes skills and concepts for each student by ability level. The learning objectives are used to develop the Student Learning Plan. These skills and concepts, aligned to state educational standards, help guide instruction by identifying the "next steps" for the student. Our teachers utilize the workbooks we provide them for each student, and focus on these individually.
