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: Life Skills for College
Preparing a teenager for college is no small feat. There are many life skills and considerations to discuss before the first day. If your child is an only child, the discussions should also include expectations of living with someone and how they will communicate about any issues or concerns. On a more basic level, teens should also know how to do their own laundry before going to college. This includes separating and folding them, as well as how to make basic repairs. Finally, parents should help the child learn how to manage money. They should know what is required to balance a checkbook and why they should pay their bills on time. These skills can help to make life a little easier for the teens when they are away from home and at college.
