Instead of a generic, one-size-fits-all program, Educational Connections' tutors quickly assess strengths and weaknesses. Since no time is wasted on what students already know, each session targets areas where improvements will have the greatest impact on test scores.

Best for Families 2022 medallion

Don't just take our word for it! Washington FAMILY Magazine named Educational Connections the best "ACT/SAT Test Prep" company in the greater Washington, D.C. area for 2022.

"Overall, our son's score rose from a 1190 on the PSAT to a 1430 on his last SAT. His growth was remarkable, but even more important to us was the personal growth his tutor Andy inspired. He became a true mentor - encouraging him, holding him accountable, and most of all giving him a roadmap for personal success. We saw our son invest in himself and see the results of his labor. We are deeply grateful and will definitely be back with our other children!" - Jessica R., Parent

ACT or SAT scores are still a critical component of most college applications. Knowing which test to take and when to start preparing can be confusing. At Educational Connections, we've found the easiest way to determine which test to take is by taking a full-length diagnostic of each test and comparing the scores. You can schedule a virtual mock test here.

Our Custom Approach to Test Prep

Diagnostic Test - The student completes a full-length diagnostic test.


Assessment - Educational Connections and your tutor determine the student's strengths, weaknesses, and areas for greatest improvement using an analysis of the diagnostic test results.


Program Creation - A custom-designed program with goals is created to enable the tutor to target the areas in greatest need of improvement.


Session Structure - Instruction and homework target three key areas: content review, test taking strategies, and simulated test practice.


Streamlined Feedback - Parents receive progress reports after each tutoring session, and have access to our online portal, which provides practice test scores and feedback, homework assignments, and scheduling information.

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!
