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: 8 Things High School Seniors Need to Do Now
If you or your child is approaching senior year, it’s crunch time. The process of getting into college can be overwhelming, and that’s usually the reason some otherwise bright and willing students give up. But, by breaking the process into manageable steps, the insurmountable mountain might not seem so intimidating after all. Right off the bat, there are 8 things college-hopeful students need to be doing now: 1) Meet the college reps (contact colleges on your list to see if admissions officers from those schools will be in your area), 2) visit the top schools on your list, 3) use a calendar to track application dates and deadlines,4) consider retaking the SAT or ACT if you are not happy with your scores, 5) start to get familiar with financial aid (see if there are any free resources available at your high school or in your district), 6) write your college essay (DO NOT wait for the night before the application deadline!), 7) ask teachers and school counselors as early as possible for those college recommendation letters, 8) and finally, whittle down your list of colleges (no more than 8 should be needed).
