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 three services: Subject Tutoring, Executive Function Coaching, and for those applying to college, SAT and ACT preparation.
We meet students where they are. At Educational Connections, we have an outstanding virtual coaching program proven to fill in the gaps, keep students on track, improve executive function skills, and make parent lives a lot less stressful. Our virtual program allows our coaches to meet your student where they are in terms of academics, schedule and a style of learning that is as comfortable as it is efficient.
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. 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.
