"I have been a tutor at 5 different companies and universities, as well as tutored privately, and I was so fed up by the lack of consistency and resources that I had almost given up on tutoring. But when I found Educational Connections, I once again fell in love with tutoring! The staff are professional and treat their tutors right by giving them training, supplies, and support throughout the hiring and student placement process. Once you get placed with a student, you have the freedom to run sessions how you like, but you can always reach out to the company to get advice along the way. It’s a huge bonus that this company is located in the DC metro area—I’ve made some contacts at local schools from my tutoring experience, which has only led to more room for advancement in the education field."

"I have been working with Educational Connections for a year and a half, and I absolutely love this tutoring and coaching business. I'm a retired teacher with Fairfax County Public Schools, where I taught special education and English (I have a PhD in English and am certified to teach Special Education K-12). I tutor approximately ten students per week, on average, and really enjoy the relationships I am able to build with them and their families. I work with students of all ages. With Educational Connections, I am part of a very professional business. I have worked for a different tutoring company, and Educational Connections is head and shoulders above this other business. Educational Connections treats its employees with respect. When I call or email, I am given a prompt, courteous, and helpful reply. I have been praised and acknowledged for good work. My salary is more than three times what I made at the previous company. I also applaud Educational Connections for its commitment to its tutors' professional development. It offers training on a regular basis (which counts for certification points, if you are still teaching and need them). I have attended as many workshops as possible and have been very pleased with the quality of both the trainers and material. I love being an Educational Connections tutor/educational coach and intend to be one as long as I can."

"Working as a tutor with Educational Connections over the past two years has been an exceptional experience for me for multiple reasons, especially in regard to making a positive influence in the academic growth of students while also strengthening my skills as an educator. As a classroom teacher for twelve years and witnessing the many different learning styles, I have seen first hand how one-on-one time with students can greatly improve the academic growth of those who struggle in the classroom. Educational Connections provides a unique opportunity for educators to be specifically placed with families who are requesting particular background knowledge in order to produce the most positive learning experience possible. Educational Connections also allows tutors to work with students in their own homes where they complete their homework and feel most comfortable. This element provides an effective setting for students and families requesting extra assistance. I strongly believe the life-long relationships developed with my families I have tutored over the past two years are a direct result of the care and consideration that has been taken during the placement process at Educational Connections. The combination of connecting the most capable tutors with students to reach their greatest learning potential and building relationships in a comfortable setting is what makes Educational Connections the best quality tutoring company in the DC-Metro area."

"My daughter has always struggled with math and was found to have dyscalculia a year ago. She attends an academically rigorous school and her self confidence had been plummeting. Once she started working with Judy however, things quickly changed. Judy is warm and kind, but firm, and stays on task for the whole session. I overhear her praise and encourage my daughter appropriately, yet also persisting with difficult concepts. Judy communicated regularly with my daughter's math teacher at school, resulting in my daughter always being prepared for homework, tests, quizzes and exams. Her grade shot up and now vacillates between A and B. Judy is a gem – we are very lucky to have been introduced to her."

"Jon was amazing. He was patient, kind and knowledgeable. He helped reduce my daughters stress surrounding the test and gave her the confidence to succeed."
Kathy // EC Parent, Arlington
"I have nothing but the highest praise for Ms. Hirsch! She was an outstanding tutor – not only was she kind, patient and encouraging with my daughter, but she went out of her way to accommodate our schedule and meet with [my daughter] before her test dates. She would ask to see the calendar of homework and tests so that she could prepare ahead of time and be ready for any questions. Ms. Hirsch was on time, worked overtime, and generally put in an abundance of care and energy into her work with my daughter. As a result of her help, Abi went from a C average in the middle of 7th grade to a final grade of an A in math at the end of 8th grade! What an accomplishment!"
