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.
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.
Solid test scores can make a big difference in whether students are admitted to the college or private school of their choice, even when tests are optional. Our tutors will help your child earn a higher score on high-stakes standardized tests such as the SAT, ACT, and SSAT.
Our Executive Function Coaching is a unique, research-based program to help your child master the skills they need to succeed in school and life. In this program, your child will learn how to get organized, manage their time well, study effectively, and stay motivated.
Our College Consultants will create a custom roadmap to college for your teen. Your student will learn how to position their unique interests, goals, and accomplishments to stand out in the competitive college admissions process.
