​What We Offer Your Family

One-on-one Customized Instruction


EDS provides private customized tutoring for all grades: kindergarten through college. All sessions are one-to-one (one teacher to one student) unless otherwise requested.

Each student is placed with the appropriate tutor to meet the needs of the student. For example, if a second grade student is having difficulty reading, he is placed with a tutor who specializes in reading for second grade. On the other hand, an eighth grade student may need help in algebra. In that case, the student is placed with a tutor who specializes in algebra. At EDS, parents and students are interviewed and then assigned to a tutor that will meet the need of that particular student.


Reading - math - study skills - test prep


EDS is a private tutoring business that customizes tutoring to the student's needs. EDS specializes in reading intervention strategies that are research-based, explicit, intensive and repetitive. From word attack to comprehension, EDS can give your child the tools to be successful.



EDS also specializes in math instruction.  At early ages, we intervene to help the child understand number sense, visualize place value, and think critically to solve.  These skills are continually reinforced for middle school and high school students. 


EDS assists students with organization and test prep and other study skills.


For over 20 years, EDS has prepared student for the college entrance exams. Visit the SAT/ACT prep page.​
