Targeted Solutions

Since initiating the Supplemental Education Services (SES)  program in 2004, YPI has provided more than 120,000 K-12 students with tutoring and project-based learning in English-language arts and mathematics.

The YPI SES Program features:

  • Credentialed teachers and experienced academic tutors assistants

  • Instruction can be either linked to State of California standards or aligned with Common Core curriculum
  • Intermediate and final student progress reports are developed for each student using formal and informal evaluation tools
