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.

Student studying at home

We meet students where they are. At Educational Connections, we have an outstanding tutoring program proven to fill in your child's learning gaps, keep them on track, improve executive function skills, and make parenthood a lot less stressful.

Great experience

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!!!

“Tech Breaks” Can Help Students to Focus on Homework and Finish Faster!

By Ann Dolin | November 23, 2011

I’ve always been interested in research-based ways to help students complete their homework more efficiently.  As parents, it’s our natural instinct to say things like “Turn that off!”, “Stop texting”, or “Facebook can wait.  Do you have to check your account while doing homework?”.  But in reality, our kids may “need” their technology and perhaps … Read more

By Ann Dolin | November 7, 2011

Forty years ago an Indiana electronics company brought a product to market that did more to change American K-12 education than almost anything else.
