Students gather research from a variety of sources and use it to support their theses while applying their learning to real-world applications whenever possible. Students also work on building vocabulary. In our increasingly global world, Dixon High School believes that it’s important for students to be self-guided and to take responsibility for their own learning.

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: Transcripts: The Facts
Transcripts tell a college several things about a student. They contain the student’s course selection, or the list of classes the student has taken in high school. This tells the college how rigorous the student’s classes have been. For example, a student who has taken several honors or advanced placement classes is going to look more competitive than one who hasn’t. But, of course, not every high school offers these classes, and another document called a school profile explains what courses are offered and how rigorous they are. Also, take into consideration that the rigor of course selection is different for different students. It can depend on what major the student wants in college, or at least what type of major; a student who wants to major in mathematics who has taken several art classes but no calculus classes might look suspicious to a college. Also included on the transcript is the grade point average, which, again, is dependent on the course selection to be accurately judged.
