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: Fostering Resiliency in Your Child
Life is full of both joys and obstacles, and children are not immune to these realities. But children need the parents and adults in their lives to teach them healthy ways to cope with issues as they arise and develop the skills of resilience needed to manage the stressors of adulthood. Here are a few ways to act as a resiliency role model for your child. First, keep calm. Children tend to observe the way an adult responds to a difficult situation to determine their next move. A calm, practical response from adult can be just what that child needs to gain a better understanding about an issue, such as the death of a family member, a personal loss, or a local tragedy. Second, find small ways to encourage your child to escape their comfort zone. Stimulating their stress-receptors in smaller, manageable situations will help them build stamina for those larger unexpected stressors in life. Lastly, build on their sense of self. Remind your child that s/he has everything needed to handle any situation that comes their way. Your words are powerful keys to open the door to developing your child’s own inner strength.
