ETS partners with government agencies and non-profit organizations to empower K-12 students and adult learners

At Educational Tutoring Services (ETS), our commitment extends beyond conventional education boundaries. We collaborate closely with respected agencies such as the Department of Children and Families, the Department of Human Services, and various government workforce programs under the U.S. Department of Labor. Our reach also extends to tutoring immigrants, partnering with reputable organizations like Lutheran Services in America, Gulf Coast Jewish Community Centers, and Catholic Charities. Together, we strive to empower K-12 students and adults alike, ensuring no individual is left behind in their pursuit of knowledge and opportunity.



The need for intensive tutoring for foster care children and youth is evident, and well-documented, in order to close the learning gap. An average of 500,000 children in the United States are in the foster care system, and 50% will never graduate high school without supplemental educational services. Most foster care students experience instability which affects their learning process. This is often due to frequent moves to different foster care homes and foster care families, which results in delays in school registration. ETS’ tutors are experienced in high-dosage tutoring in one-on-one or small group settings for foster care youth and have continuing education in trauma and behavior intervention.

It gives me great pleasure to recommend Educational Tutorial Services to any organization looking for tutoring or supplemental educational service programs. [ETS] Succeeds in providing dedicated and highly qualified tutors to meet the needs of our agency. The tutors work diligently to build rapport, confidence, and self-esteem in the students and families with whom they work. Educational Tutorial Services has proven to be a treasured partner with Friends of Wednesday’s Child, and I wholeheartedly recommend this program without hesitation.

Department of Children & Families and Department of Human Services

ETS has collaborated extensively with nationwide, state, and local welfare agencies, including prominent entities such as the Department of Children and Families and the Department of Human Services. Through these partnerships, ETS has endeavored to enhance the educational outcomes and overall well-being of students within the foster care system. According to data from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, there were approximately 424,000 children in foster care in the United States as of September 2021. These students often face significant educational challenges, with studies showing that they are more likely to experience academic disruptions, changes in schools, and lower graduation rates compared to their peers. Recognizing these obstacles, ETS is committed to providing tailored tutoring services designed to address the unique needs of foster care students, thereby supplementing the efforts of welfare agencies and fostering academic success and personal growth.

U.S. Department of Labor

ETS has forged impactful partnerships with the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) program, specifically focusing on aiding dislocated workers and individuals entering the workforce who seek to obtain their GED credentials. Through collaborative efforts with the DOL, ETS has contributed to empowering dislocated workers to re-enter the job market with renewed skills and confidence. Additionally, ETS has played a pivotal role in supporting individuals striving to enhance their educational qualifications by obtaining their GED, thereby opening doors to further education and career opportunities. By leveraging its expertise in education and assessment, ETS has been instrumental in equipping participants with the necessary knowledge and skills to thrive in today’s competitive job market, ultimately fostering economic mobility and empowerment within communities nationwide.



Partnering with immigrant organizations, ETS extends crucial support to youth navigating life in the United States. With a surge in refugee populations, many of these young individuals face educational gaps and require assistance in adapting to the American school system. ETS offers tailored ESL (English as a Second Language) support to aid in their transition and integration. By collaborating with non-profit organizations like Lutheran Services in America, Gulf Coast Jewish Community Centers, and Catholic Charities, ETS is equipped to effectively address the unique needs of immigrant youth and ensure their academic success and social integration.
