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: How to Strengthen Family Ties
Today’s hectic world, with financial woes that make it necessary for both parents to work makes it very difficult to plan quality family time. You may feel that it is an impossible task, sit together as a family and reflect on every activity that is taking up your time. Think about how many extracurricular activities your children are involved in and think about cutting back to one or two activities. Look at your schedule. Are you overloaded, agreeing to do too many things? Find a way to do away with some of these activities that are not really necessary. Start by designating one night as a family fun night. Make it a requirement that every family member keep this night free from any other plans. Play games and laugh together. Listen to your children, because this is the time that they will be most likely to open up, not even realizing that they are actually talking to mom or dad. No matter what your situation or what kind of family you have, you need this bonding time. Be consistent and stick to the rules. You will be amazed at the changes you will begin to see in your family. Show your kids you care about what they think. Start today.
