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!

Parents often think that the only way a child can be successful in academics is to have the best technology possible. While that helps the bases of success is much less technological. If we look at Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs, a psychological perspective on education, it is shown that the bases of success and self-actualization are the fulfillment of needs. The base is seeing that basic needs are physiological. This means that they are getting food, sleep, water - essential items that are required for life and health.
The next step is to have safety. They are living in an environment that helps to protect them and danger is not present in their daily lives. Then they must feel that they belong. The belonging level is achieved through love, emotional support, affection, and being part of groups. Next, they need self-esteem. Not only is it self-esteem, but the esteem of others to allow them to learn and grow and express their ideas. The final step is achieving self actualization or reaching one's potential. This can have many facets such as potential in academically, socially, and professionally.
