I’ve used EC Tutoring on several occasions over the years for both my son and daughter, most recently for ACT and SAT... prep. They have been great, providing us with tutors who were easy to work with and who helped both of my kids raise their test scores significantly. Currently a senior in high school, my daughter began a test prep tutoring package in late 2019, anticipating taking the ACT in early April 2020. She was all set to take it, and then COVID-19 hit, and her test was cancelled. She re-registered for later test dates – June, then August, then September – all ended up canceled. By the time the end of the summer rolled around, I signed her up for some additional test prep sessions with ECT to help make sure she was up to speed again after the long break. ECT matched her with Suin – a total go-getter of a tutor and really sharp. This time around the sessions were virtual, and while I might have been skeptical at first, the virtual sessions were even better than our previous in-person sessions simply because scheduling tutoring time was easier without having to factor in travel time. Shortly after my daughter began prepping for the ACT again, we discovered her August ACT had been cancelled, so she made the switch to prepping for the SAT instead just to broaden her test taking opportunities. Suin was able to quickly identify the strategies my daughter would need to adopt in order to do well on the SAT. My daughter just took her first real SAT in September and raised her SAT score 200 points compared to both a mock SAT she had taken in 2019 and also a mock test we gave her in August at the start of her SAT prep with Suin. We are beyond thrilled. Her test score is either above or at the top of the middle 50% range for all of the colleges she’s applying to, putting her two reach schools well within her grasp now.ECT and Suin are great, and I highly recommend them both.read more

EC was a game-changer for my son. They are hyper-attentive to the individual needs of the student and a great... organization to work with. My son went from failing high school math to a B average. Moreover, he actually looked forward to working with his tutor on a weekly basis, taking a lot of stress off of both of us.We are now using RC for ACT prep and to help across multiple subjects—even the ones where his grades are good.read more

We have used EC Tutoring for both my high school boys when it was time to prep for the ACT. Both boys had their... composite score go up 4 points. My younger son already had a strong score after taking the ACT for the first time but wanted to improve. EC thought 4 tutoring sessions would be enough and they were right. His score went from a 31 to a 35. I really appreciate that they did not try to oversell us on how many sessions to sign up for. I would highly recommend their services.read more

We started using educational connections for my son. He needed help with his English class. They matched him with the... perfect tutor for his personality and his educational needs.We just started using one of their tutors for SAT prep, unfortunately the first tutor that was paired with my daughter was a terrible match. But after I spoke to them about it, they did not hesitate in getting her a new tutor. The new tutor is a perfect match. Both experiences have been very positive.Would highly recommend.read more

Why Kids Struggle with Virtual Math (And What Parents Can Do About It)

By Ann Dolin | October 28, 2020

Math has always gotten a bad rap for being the subject kids struggle with the most. It’s abstract, challenging, and cumulative. (This means that each new skill builds on the last, so failure to master one unit can make future units even harder.) It’s also challenging to teach! If a teacher moves too slowly, some … Read more
