! Achieve Success is an approved provider for the (SES) tutoring program that offers FREE tutoring to qualifying students in the subjects of Math, Reading, and Science from grades K-12.   The tutoring sessions (20+ hours) are paid for by the school system through federal grants. You are not guaranteed to receive the free tutoring since funds are limited.

You are guaranteed to miss out if you miss your district's deadline to apply.  

Your child may qualify for free tutoring if your child is eligible for free or reduced priced lunch AND attends an eligible Title I school. If parental requests for free tutoring exceed the amount of funding available, the school district will serve the students with the greatest need.  Neither your state department of education nor the school district promote or endorse any particular supplemental educational services (SES) provider.

How do I know if I qualify?

If your child qualifies for SES free tutoring, your school or school district will typically send home an application for you to apply for the program.  Your child must also qualify for free or reduced lunch to be eligible for the program.  Many school districts also send a list of providers to you in order to aid you in choosing a tutoring company.  In some locations, you may be required to go to the school board's central office, Title I office, or child's school office to sign up.   

How do I know which company is right for me?

At the beginning of the school year, your district may have one or more provider fairs in which you can go and talk to representatives from each tutoring company.  Some school districts have the providers (tutoring companies) come to open house night for the school.  Parents should sign up for services with a tutoring company that has a proven track record of success.
