At Educational Connections, we’re more than just a tutoring company.

We believe that every student, even the most accomplished ones, can use a little help with optimizing their study habits. For that reason, we incorporate skills like staying organized, planning ahead to reduce procrastination, and study techniques into most everything we do. We offer four services: Subject Tutoring, Executive Function Coaching, Test Prep, and College Consulting.

When looking for one-on-one tutoring for our high school student, we were happy to find Educational Connections for several reasons. Their pricing is comparable to and (in some cases) provides even more value than their competitors. In addition to subject tutoring, they offer coaching to help students be better organized, plan ahead, and improve study skills. And, the tutors and coaches are easy to stay in touch with and provide continuous feedback on our student's progress. In the short time we've worked with them, our son's grades and confidence in chemistry have already shown great improvement and he is more proactive in planning and scheduling study time and completing assignments in general.

My kids have really benefitted from the tutoring through the Educational Connections. its been a worthwhile expense for our family...
My son is a freshman in college. He’s had an IEP his entire life and got to college and was completely in over his head and overwhelmed with how to keep track of what needs be done and also writing papers. He’s been working with Brianna and we have been thrilled with the results. He got his first paper back with a grade of B+. She’s continuing to work with him on his writing skills so eventually he’ll be able to tackle these larger assignments comfortably. Thank you!!!
