"Academic Connections Tutoring has been fantastic for my daughter. After an initial interview they found a
tutor who was a perfect fit for my daughter’s unique needs. In three months her grades increased two grade
point levels. And my daughter’s attitude is great! What an improvement over previous tutoring services we tried.
About a month after my son started tutoring in reading with ACT, I ran into his reading teacher at his school. She told
me his sessions with her recently had been much improved. She was not aware that he had started working with a tutor. When
I informed her, she stated she could tell the difference in his performance. I feel that the individualized, one on one
tutoring in our home works much better for our son and our family than a tutoring center.
The Brown Family would like to thank Academic Connections and their tutor, Ms. Jillian for all of their
help with our kindergartner. Da’Quan has shown so much progress in such a short period of time and is now
confident in his classroom. He and his tutor seem to be a match made in heaven. He is very excited for
their appointments and so are we.
This tutoring service has not only relived us of our concerns with Da’Quan but it has helped our entire family
with monthly learning tips and nuggets of information that we all have used!
When we met with the owners, Donna and Pat, to discuss our need for our son it felt as if we knew them for a
long time, and their knowledge blew us away. From just their conversation with Da’Quan they immediately
identified his learning style and at the end of our first meeting they stayed and watched as Da’Quan
conducted a music concert for them!
We would recommend this service to anyone who is looking for an outstanding, affordable and family oriented
We want to thank God for sending your services our way and we are praying for an Academic Connections’ School!

ACT has done a magnificent job in providing my High School student with the confidence and tools he needs to succeed both
in High School and moving into College. His GPA has gone from a 3.1 to a 3.6 and he is now taking mostly honors and AP courses.
"Academic Connections was very thorough and took the time to understand my child's needs. My son had a
great experience with ACT last summer. The tutor connected, engaged and challenged him! We look forward
to another summer with ACT. It helps him keep his edge before school starts again!"

"You probably hear this a lot, but it bears repeating...your service is amazing! I am just thrilled with
the tutoring Kate is receiving! Donna is a remarkable tutor. She has clarity of mind that she conveys
with such ease, making each lesson clear and truly understood.
When I became aware that Kate was struggling academically due to auditory processing difficulties, I was
anxious to gain the help she needed with her academics, but she is receiving so much more. Donna has
helped Kate to overcome her insecurity in her abilities, becoming more self-assured and confident. She is
less fearful of the process and gaining more and more confidence with each success.
Thank you so much for providing this wonderful service!"
"I just want to let you know that I appreciate you all. Thank you for assigning Stephen with Heather,
she is wonderful. I say a blessing for Stephen and I. He listens to Heather while she explains things
with him thoroughly and in a way Stephen can comprehend. I am also learning with him."
"I just want to say thank you to Donna and Academic Connections. They were very flexible and
accommodating. Raven is in preschool and has some challenging learning disabilities and wasn't
interested in learning. But they made it fun by approaching learning like a game so he loved
working with them. We look forward to working with ACT in the future.
Thank you so much for your help! I can't thank you enough for the creative learning ideas."
"One of the things that struck me while we were doing the in-home consultation was that ACT was looking
at Joshua as a whole person and not just a subject. The detailed level of questions made me feel
confident that my child’s personal concerns and needs were being clearly identified. They were looking
for the root of his challenge and not simply at a subject to tutor. Right away they realized he might
need organizational help along with subject support. Also when deciding what/how to tutor him they
really looked long term not just help for now. It gave me a real sense of confidence that they would
be able to adjust to his changing needs and not confine their focus to what was our concern now."
