Choose Reading and Beyond as your child’s SES provider

Reading And Beyond has a 12-year history and reputation for effective literacy tutoring. Our tutoring program was recognized by the U.S. Department of Education, Fresno Unified School District, the James Irvine Foundation, and multiple other sources.

Reading And Beyond offers students educational assistance with an emphasis on reading and comprehension. Our program enables the student to attain his or her specific achievement goals by providing one-on-one tutoring.

Reading And Beyond’s SES tutors are a combination of credentialed teachers, liberal study majors in their junior or senior year of college, and professionals with a proven history of effective tutoring and at least 48 units of completed college. All tutors complete a through literacy intervention training given by a credentialed teacher.

Parents have the choice of taking their child to one of our Community Sites to receive tutoring, or having the tutor work with their child in the comfort of their home. As part of the SES provider responsibilities, Reading And Beyond will measure the student’s progress, and regularly inform the student’s parents and teachers of that progress.



The goal of Reading And Beyond’s SES program is for each child who completes the program to improve by at least one grade level in reading and comprehension. Reading and Beyond has helped thousands of students in SES tutoring over the past 10 years. Over 70% of the students who completed the SES program have improved by one grade level in reading comprehension.

Reading And Beyond meets the educational needs of each student by holding tutoring sessions twice a week, for one hour. Each child receives 20-25 one hour sessions. The exact number of sessions depends on the school district the student attends. Our main priority is the educational success of each child.


Students attending Title 1 schools identified for improvement are given the option of (1) transferring to another public school, or (2) receiving SES, depending on the eligibility of the student and the status of the school.

Students of low-income families, generally those who receive free or reduced-price lunch, who attend Title 1 schools that have not made adequate yearly progress for at least three years, are eligible for free tutoring services. School districts are required to notify families if their children are eligible for SES tutoring services.

Families can also find out whether a child is eligible by contacting the school principal, school district, or the U.S. Department of Education (toll-free at 1-800-872-5327).

Supplemental Educational Services (SES) are free tutoring services designed to help struggling students in Title 1 schools achieve progress. These services offer students extra help in academic subjects such as reading, language arts, and mathematics.

SES services are provided outside the regular school day; before school, after school, or on weekends. Once a state has identified a school as “in need of improvement” for two or more years, the school district determines which students in that school are eligible for services.

The district then notifies families of eligible students of their option of free tutoring. The school district must also provide information about the local SES providers (tutoring companies) that can to help families select one, allowing enough time to compare options and make the choice that is most suitable for their student.
