Tutoring at ETS begins with an individualized program developed in coordination between ETS staff, the parent(s), and the teacher(s). Communication among the “team” members is critical to your child’s success. Depending on the individualized tutoring plan, sessions can incorporate homework help, organization skills, time management, and study strategies. ETS also has the expertise to work with students with an array of learning disabilities (including dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, and attention disorders) as well. For high schoolers, we can provide tutoring for SAT or ACT Prep, and midterm and final exam prep. We have tutoring centers in Summerville and Mount Pleasant but also offer some off-site tutoring (for example downtown Charleston and West Ashley areas) on a limited basis. For some middle and high school students, we can provide online tutoring if you cannot make it to one of our centers.
We also have special tutoring programs such as the Wilson Reading Program (ideal for students with dyslexia or decoding difficulties, readers who lack fluency, or poor spellers) which is based on the Orton-Gillingham philosophy and utilizes a multi-sensory approach to phonics instruction for reading and spelling.

We also provide tutoring with the Reading REWARDS Program for students who have basic decoding skills but struggle with decoding longer words. Students are taught a flexible strategy for reading multi-syllabic words to increase speed and accuracy which often leads to enhanced comprehension and reading confidence.

We also offer individual tutor for help preparing for the SAT or ACT college entrance exams
