We Help Students from Kindergarten to College with:

Math Tutoring

No matter what aspect of math is causing your child to struggle—whether it is elementary math or a college-level course—our top-credentialed tutors have the experience, compassion, and energy to make learning math fun, rewarding, and successful. We have math tutors available in the following subjects: Elementary Math, Middle School Math, Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, and Statistics.

Reading Tutoring

Children of all ages can struggle with reading. Our reading tutors are committed to encouraging the enjoyment of reading and view this as a central element in reading improvement and success. We also offer instruction in the Wilson Reading Program for children who need intensive support to learn to decode words and develop reading fluency or for those who've been diagnosed with Dyslexia. 

Writing Tutoring

Many students find the writing process overwhelming. We empathize with the stress writing challenges can pose for students and their parents and go the extra mile to provide the motivation, support, and strategies to help students become successful writers. Our program is based upon progressive, evidence-based strategies that lead to “breakthrough” moments for students. These strategies center on several key elements, including the development and organization of ideas, the components of a good sentence, paragraph, and essay writing, the rules of grammar and punctuation, proofreading techniques, and research skills.

What To Expect

We celebrate the fact that every child learns differently, so you won’t find a one-size-fits-all tutoring solution here.

For more than 26 years, families have chosen Educational Connections because we guarantee:

  • Access to the most qualified coaches and tutors. (We hire less than 10% of the tutors who apply with us to ensure we bring you the best of the best. All of our tutors are college graduates, and about 90% hold Master's degrees or higher!).

  • Targeted subject support paired with executive function strategies to improve your child's study habits.
  • Feedback reports that document your child's progress after every session so you're always kept up to speed.

  • Ongoing, monthly training keeps our educators up-to-date on the best, research-based strategies and most relevant information for students.

"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." - Linda, Parent

"Educational Connections has been an amazing resource. It is wonderful as a parent not to create conflict at homework time. Any time we need a tutor in any subject or executive functioning, I reach out, and the amazing staff finds the perfect tutor for my child's learning style. I have recommended others, and they all say Educational Connections is a lifesaver, and I completely agree!" - Carolyn, Parent
