8th Grade Tutoring Programs
District-Aligned Eighth Grade Tutoring Programs
SchoolTutoring Academy provides students with their own personal tutor to improve and enhance their academic experience. Sessions are structured based on the needs of the child. While some students may opt to use their sessions to attempt more challenging problems, others may use their sessions to go over specific concepts that might not have made sense to them the first time they were taught.
As the child’s personal tutor begins to identify the child’s strengths and potential areas of improvement, the sessions will develop and reflect the tutor’s growing knowledge of the academic situation of the student. At the seventh grade level, our certified tutors will focus on the following subjects: Math, English and Science.
Contact our Academic Directors Today at 1-877-545-7737 to Discuss your Child's Strengths and Areas for Improvement.

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!
