Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy 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 very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
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!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: How to Manage Time Effectively
In our increasingly fast-paced, multi-tasking world, the very thing that we live by may be what’s getting in our way. Time. Punctuality and reliability are hallmarks of responsibility, but valuing and organizing “our” time is worth its weight in peace. By managing time, we are able to complete important tasks and accomplish goals, while meeting those externally imposed deadlines. The first aspect of managing time is to prioritize. It is not just important to do this every time you’re making plans, but it is a helpful habit. Being able to identify what is truly important—and urgent—and what can wait until later will help you to be more productive and stress less about the “small stuff”. It is also important to prioritize your priorities. For example, there are many facets of your life, including school, work, home, family, friends, etc. Each aspect of your life has its own list of priorities, but don’t forget that some of the areas in your life are more important than others; be sure to address those first.
