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: How to Help a Second Grade Student with Math
Students, no matter what age, often struggle with concepts taught in class. As a parent, if this describes a second grade student in the home, there are some strategies to help out. At this age, students begin to count money, to help out try setting up a store or a restaurant, along with play money, so the child can learn to become counting money. Working on addition and subtraction also goes with this age. To help try to make it more fun. Instead of the standard pencil and paper, give the child some sand, shaving cream or even liquid soap to write their equations, They will have so much fun that it will not even seem like practice. Asking a child to help cook is another fun way to learn math at this age. By following a recipe, the child learns about measurements, and volume. To help with geometry, ask the child to create a picture using different geometric shapes, the let their imagination soar.
