For the subject of Math and English, basic topics like number counting, learning the alphabet and sounds are introduced at elementary school level.

Likewise in Math, topics include numerical operations, fractions and their operations, shapes and measurement, and sharing and dividing concepts are introduced to the students.
As far as Computer Studies is concerned, initially students are taught verbally the different parts of the computer and their uses, later on more intricate skills relevant to the grades are introduced. Similarly, for Science, topics like the different parts of the body, their uses, parts of a plant are started off at the first grade. Other topics like machines, weather, heat and electricity are explained to the students at higher grades.

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.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
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: Ways to Enhance Your Child’s Thinking Skills
There are many ways you can make your kid think and ponder, before s/he performs an action. Ask your kids various simple questions like what s/he did with his friends at school today? Or what s/he had for lunch yesterday? Where s/he would like to go for an outing? Similarly, there are a number of games you can play with your child, like Tic-Tac-Toe, Dominoes, UNO. These games are very useful to enhance a kid’s thinking and in turn, his/her cognitive skills. S/he may start to learn tips and tricks needed for him to win and also would know gradually to make strategies how to defeat the opponent. Also, as your kid grows older, you can provide him or her with toys like Jigsaw Puzzles, Lego blocks and also ask him/her to follow the directions provided and act accordingly. This will give them a lot of opportunities to prove themselves at learning and following skills.
