Tutoring in Indianapolis

Supplemental Educational Services Tutoring

When looking into tutoring options, the first place you'll want to check is with your children's school becuase supplemental educational services (SES) may be offered. The SES program is a tutoring-based service that gives extra help to students in science, math and language arts, and provides the service for free. To qualify, students must attend a Title 1 school that has not achieved academic success over several years. A majority of the time, the tutoring sessions take place on campus. However, you may be able to select an SES-approved tutoring program to receive private one-on-one help for your child at home.

Founded in 1992, the program pairs volunteers with students of all ages to serve as mentors and tutors. The volunteers commit to meeting with the child they're assigned to for at least one hour every week. The students in the program receive homework help as well as tutoring in core subjects, like math and reading.
