Our Philosophy


From your first meeting, we want to get to know you, not just as a student but as a person. Working together, we can identify strengths and weaknesses to help you reach your full academic potential.  


When it comes to providing academic support, we know we are truly creating a relationship. Whether that be with a tutor, a college advisor, or a career counselor, we know you deserve the best. Accordingly, we make sure that we carefully select your perfect fit.

Feedback and Progress

We look at your time with Atrium in terms of progress and growth. In order to ensure that you are satisfied with your relationship and academic standing, we always ask for feedback and make adjustments to fit your needs.

About Atrium Educational

Recognizing a need in the area for excellent one on one tutoring options coupled with a platform for accessible communication and feedback, Atrium Educational was formed in 2005. 

Based in Syosset, Atrium has been serving Long Island for over 18 years with the highest quality educational services ranging from individual subject tutoring to college advising to test preparation. We seek to help every student by taking an individualized approach based on age and level. 


We have experienced, caring, tutoring professionals available for all grades, levels and subjects pre k through college.  This includes students who have special learning challenges, as well as students who need help preparing for upper level SAT, ACT, and AP exams.


In 2010 we added personalized college counseling and application assistance to our offerings and in 2016 we added career counseling to our menu of personalized services.


In addition to excellent tutors, Atrium has a reputation for superlative customer service and parent/tutor feedback. We take a direct, comprehensive approach to ensure the satisfaction of our clients. Many of our clients come to us through very happy customer referrals; and many of our families have utilized our services for years.

At Atrium Educational, we are sure that we can provide the perfect services for every student, regardless of their age or level. Call us today to schedule a meeting and join the Atrium community. 

The Atrium Difference

At Atrium Educational we employ only the highest-quality tutors to work with your children. Our tutors work with students on an individual basis.  How many hours per week, and the length of each tutoring session is decided on a case by case basis depending on your child's needs, and the amount of time and resources your family wants to devote.  There is no obligation to commit to a certain numbers of hours, dollars or sessions.

We understand that chemistry among student and tutor is as important as the knowledge, expertise or experience of a tutor. For that reason, an Atrium services coordinator other than the tutor oversees each student, their progress and feedback from tutor. 

About Our Director

Lauren Salit

Lauren C. Salit, Managing Director and Educational Placement Coordinator


Lauren C. Salit has served as Atrium’s Managing Director and Educational Placement Coordinator since 2006. Ms. Salit is responsible for personally interviewing every tutor hired by Atrium.  All of our tutors are subjected to a rigorous interview process, which includes thorough reference and background investigations.  Tutors range from graduate Students, to teachers, to retired teachers to engineers.  Not only must our tutors have mastered their area of expertise; but they must also have a keen ability to relate to their students and be able to explain concepts to them in a way they can clearly understand.

Ms. Salit also works very closely, and on a continual basis, with our families, her philosophy being that in order for the progress being sought to be achieved, there needs to be the right “chemistry” between the student and tutor.  The goal is always to give the student the confidence and skills to be successful independent of tutoring.  She is always available for questions and concerns, and sincerely wants to do what is best for your child.

Ms. Salit holds a Bachelor’s Degree from Vassar College.  She also has a Juris Doctorate from Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University.
