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.

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: Helping your Child Prepare for the SAT or ACT
Standardized tests such as the SAT or ACT can be frightening. Students spend a lot of time during high school talking to their friends and preparing for these tests which are often used to determine their educational future. Test scores are important. However, be aware that each college uses test scores differently and no college makes admission decisions based solely on a student’s test scores. A student’s academic record is also reviewed and used as an indicator for a student’s potential success in college. The best advice you can give your child is to study hard and read, read, read. Reading will help strengthen both their comprehension and vocabulary skills. Also, make sure they practice their writing. Suggest that they take challenging and advanced placement courses in high school. Recommend that your child take numerous practice tests which are available on-line or in books. Your child can also take a specialized course through their school or from a local tutoring company that focuses on effective test taking strategies and raising SAT and ACT scores. Finally, make sure your child has a good night sleep and a nutritious breakfast before the exam. Stay calm, positive and encouraging.
