About US

Our History

Founded in 1996, ETS began as, and remains a service-driven organization well before that was a common catch phrase.

For 28 years we have helped students unlock their potential. Most importantly, we are doubling down on our efforts to expand and help as many children as possible.

Due to the Pandemic in 2020, ETS has gone fully remote, and can serve children anywhere there is an internet connection. If your agency, district, company or service touches young people in need, please consider calling us. We pride ourselves in the ability to make a difference in the lives of students.

“Our teachers go above and beyond the prescriptive services all the time”, says Lisa Russell, founder of ETS “They will buy their own supplies, bring kids food, clothing, and put in extra time— they are really remarkable people.”

From one person offering tutoring services to one local foster care family in Pittsburgh, PA in 1996, ETS has grown to a nationwide team of hundreds of the most dedicated tutors and teaching professionals one could find. The company is stronger today than it ever has been, and we already have our sights set on our next milestone. “We want to represent and assist students in every state— that’s our goal” says Lisa Russell.

We look forward to working together, and continuing our service driven path for many years to come!
