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: What Students Learn in Today's Technology Classes
Technology education is one of the fastest growing, and changing, subjects in schools today. It can encompass everything from beginner's classes in using a computer and navigating its main functions to high school pre-engineering or specialized, high skills courses. Students are introduced to topics such as coding and programming, and learn how to build websites and innovate with technology. Technology courses are also prime ways to integrate the subject with other core academic subjects such as math, science, and reading and writing. Students become more compelled to learn, understand and retain information in these subjects when they are in the process of using them. Students may use all of these subjects in their technology pursuits, or may find themselves using graphic arts programs and, in turn, support their knowledge in the arts.
