In a few hours my son’s tutor had him on the right path. He scored a 96% on his test following his first two sessions. I am very happy for my son and impressed by the quality of your teachers at Educational Connections.
We’ve been working with a tutor from Education c Connections for a couple years and we think she’s the best Tutor we’ve ever worked with. Previously, we had a tutor from through the school and from another company , and they were not as experienced, professional, or as patient as out tutor from Education Connection. The Tutor is also very funny and nice!
