  • We have used Franklin Educational Services for seven years. We have three children with ADD and various degrees of learning challenges. Dr. Franklin has provided wonderful academic managers / tutors who have provided our kids with tools and strategies to excel despite their challenges. Dr. Franklin does an exceptional job screening and training his academic managers / tutors. Each one has gone above and beyond what we have expected. They are responsible, highly qualified, easy to work with and caring. Our primary academic manager has worked with our children for the entire seven year period. We and our children adore her. Our two oldest are now going to excellent colleges and this simply would not have been possible without Dr. Franklin’s talented, highly qualified staff, who have changed their lives with their skill, genuine concern and dedication.

  • Franklin Educational Services has done an AMAZING job in helping my daughter, as well as many of my friends children.  I have used their services for well over 10 years and their support, guidance, expertise in getting coaches and tutors . Their employees and tutors are fantastic. They  are RELIABLE CARING, and BRIGHT, SUPPORTIVE, working with you throughout the  educational process. I f one coach or tutor is not the right fit they will immediately listen to your input and needs and find the right fit for the child’s progress. My daughter still feels close to several of her past coaches  and is thankful for their encouragement and support which gave her the confidence to push herself and succeed.

  • I have used Franklin Education’s academic managers for my own children for a number of years and have always been more than pleased with their professionalism and level of academic support. Franklin’s highly trained academic managers have a deep knowledge of their subject areas, as well as an understanding of different learning styles. As a psychotherapist, I refer to the company often. One of my clients also benefitted from their on-site one-to-one schooling program. I couldn’t offer a higher recommendation.

  • This past year, into the second half of the school semester our daughter was failing math.  We were puzzled by this because otherwise she’s a straight A student, but every test/quiz taken was a D or an F.  I should also mention she had math homework almost every night which would diligently be completed and turned in and received an A just for doing the work.  The teacher never reviews the homework so when we checked in with Jupiter Grades (she’s in public middle school), the system would show all A’s for homework and F’s and D’s on all tests and quizzes.  For whatever reason, our daughter was not absorbing the lessons being taught in class.  Facing an F in the subject and desperate for help we reached out to Franklin Education seeking a tutor.  I got a response almost immediately and after filling out some easy forms on-line and answering a few questions about our daughter academically, they matched us with the perfect tutor.  Our daughter immediately responded to her.  The tutor took the time to go over the math homework and explained how to solve the problems in a way that made logical sense.  After two sessions, our daughter aced her next test with an A+.  She ended up getting a B in the course which we will take, much better than an F, plus she had a long way to go since we were already deep into the second semester.  If we reached out earlier she would have earned an A+ in math.  We are counting on that A+ this next school year and Franklin Education and our beloved tutor will be by our daughter’s side again.

  • I have had the pleasure of working with Dr. Daniel Franklin for the past three years as a teacher.  During this time, I have worked both as a homeschool instructor in the Brentwood Learning Center as well as an academic manager with students after school in their homes. My experience has been extraordinary! I have consistently found that Dr. Franklin and his staff are committed to excellence; they have always been incredibly supportive not only to the students and families for whom we provide educational services, but also to instructors. They maintain an unwavering devotion to professionalism and provide ongoing opportunities for continuing education so that the service we offer to students is superb in quality.  I am delighted to embark upon my fourth year working with Franklin Educational Services and look forward to another great year!
