SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!

Chalk Talk: Preparing A Child for a New School
Whether due to promotion or a family move, most children face changing schools sometime during their education. Adjusting to a new school can be a tense time for children and parents but it can be made easier with a little help from the parents. Before the child begins attending the new school, remind them of the ways they have made friends in the past. This may be by showing an interest, talking about hobbies or smiling. Another thing the child can do is to become involved. Parents should find out what clubs or teams interest the child, this is a way to open a door to belonging. Parents can also share with the child what to expect in the new school. How it may be similar or different from the school they came from. Most of all, parents need to keep the doors of communication open to see if there are other ways they can help.
