Test Prep for Students

"Overall, our son's score rose from 1190 on the PSAT to 1430 on his last SAT. His growth was remarkable, but even more important to us was the personal growth his tutor inspired. He became a true mentor - encouraging him, holding him accountable, and most of all giving him a roadmap for personal success. We saw our son invest in himself and see the results of his labor. We are deeply grateful and will definitely be back with our other children!" - Jessica R.

"I am blown away with my son’s tutor! Max just got back his SAT score this morning, and he went up 100 points from his practice exam. His tutor is amazing. He is patient, super smart, and Max loves working with him." - Amy P.

"We have relied on Educational Connections for several years to help our two teenagers with math, science, and SAT prep. The tutors have been top-notch and so emphatic." - Amanda T.
