About New


When you choose award winning Educational Connections, you make an investment in the most superior tutoring available in the Northern Virginia and DC area.

In fact, with top credentials, solid experience, and Educational Connections’ own system, our tutors can deliver twice the value in every session compared with services that customize the tutor-student match but then use one-size-fits-all tutoring regardless of the child’s learning style and needs.

Parents value our ability to deliver progress. Parents also trust our warm but highly professional tutoring to help students master skills, confidence, and strategies that will continue to reward them in school and beyond.


  • Most highly customized tutoring experience available anywhere
  • In-home tutoring simplifies the family’s busy schedule
  • Feedback reports show specific progress and document the value of every session
  • Tutors make sessions fun and really motivate students to plan, prioritize, organize, and succeed
  • Measurable improvements in grades and test scores


  • Unlike many tutoring services, Educational Connections employs only the most qualified instructors.
  • Each personal tutor has a minimum of a Bachelor’s degree; however 86% of tutors also have Master’s degrees.
  • As testament to the rigorous standards Educational Connections maintains, just 5% of applicants are hired to join our tutoring core.
  • One of our Program Managers will serve as your point of contact and carefully match your child with one of our 200 personal tutors based on:
  • Personality
  • Subject Needs
  • Special Needs
  • Previous Experience
  • Your manager is with you every step of the way and reviews your tutor’s session notes after each tutoring session using our EC Link software, ensuring instructional quality every step of the way.
  • All of this contributes to our striking average client satisfaction rating of 9.5/10.

We spend hours matching students to the right tutor, and we guarantee the best tutor match for your child. If it’s not, we will work with you to make it right.

  • Our computer tutoring system keeps tutors, parents, and staff in touch regarding student progress, areas for improvement, and general tutoring activities.
  • As a parent you can log in at any time to review your child’s session notes that are entered after each session. These notes are also emailed to you. This is so important because too often parents are kept aloof of their child’s development!

I cannot say enough amazing words about Miss Cindy and what a perfect match EC made when you placed her and Nico together. He has thrived over the last 18+months with the consistent, focused engagement that Miss Cindy has provided. She is patient, kind, motivating and I have seen firsthand the talent and professionalism she brings to her tutoring. Essentially she has been a tremendous part of Nico's continued success in learning and a special person to our entire family. While we know Nico will struggle to learn, he has worked so hard and we as parents and his teachers at school see his great progress....and that is only through him working so hard and others believing in him. His teachers and supporters including Miss Cindy have made the difference and for this, we are profoundly grateful and hopeful. Nico is a beautiful and bright boy who is full of life and love and we will continue to support him in every way possible.

I wanted you to know how pleased we have been with your services! Our daughter has improved her grade so much in Algebra. Karen has been really good for her and our daughter has been able to understand the materials.

I am compelled to tell you how incredible Ashley is as a tutor. Let's start with the fact that she arrived every day on time and got right down to business and she stayed until the hour ended, every time. Ashley is someone who has a gift. She knows exactly how to take concepts and pull them off the page to help students learn. For example, she once came into the kitchen and asked for a glass of water to dramatize volume to our child. She would often tell our child, "I showed you how to do it, now I want you to teach it back to me." She never came unprepared, she always had worksheets, problems for our child to work on in case there was not much math homework or a quiz to study for. Her goal was always to make sure that our child truly understood the concepts that they were working on. It has made a world of difference to our child to have Ashley's support and knowledge.
