Virtual Tutoring

There’s no doubt that this school year brings many uncertainties and a whole lot of anxiety to parents and kids. We’re here to help take the burden off your plate and improve your child’s skills, grades and study habits. Using top-notch online video conferencing with interactive white boards and polling for both one-to-one and small group tutoring, our tutors (87% of whom have a master’s degree) make learning so engaging it feels as if they’re in the same room as your child.

In-home Tutoring

Offered as a Premium Service only, in-home tutoring options are limited based on availability and location. While we will strive to accommodate your requests, please understand there may be a significant delay as we look to find the best fit for your student, as well as continuing to follow the COVID safety protocols. In addition, please note there is a $250 non-refundable Placement Search fee required.

Test Preparation

​​Our expert test prep tutors individualize private, online sessions to help students prepare for high-stakes standardized tests such as the SAT, ACT, and SSAT.

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

Both of my students raised their test... scores significantly after using the high quality tutors that Educational Connections selected for my kids. Each of my kids had different tutoring needs, and EC was able to accommodate their unique requirements in tutoring. I would highly recommend Educational Connections.read more

3 Habits of Highly Effective Students 🌟

By Ann Dolin | April 6, 2020

After 21 years of working with students, I’ve discovered that the most effective ones don’t usually obsess over big, long-term goals like the ones many of us set at the start of a new year. Instead, they focus on the simple daily habits they know will generate the results they want. Daily habits are much easier … Read more
