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.
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 whiteboards and polling, 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.
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.
