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: What Is Behaviorism?
Sometimes learning is a mental process that incorporates past learning and prior experiences. Other times, learning is an acquired behavior that can be promoted by a reward. How many times have we strived for a good grade on a test, or for extra credit, and felt a sense of achievement or reward when we achieved those goals? The philosophy of behaviorism is very much an objectively observable phenomenon, like observable scientific phenomena. However, it dictates that learning can be a product, to some degree, of conditioning. There are two main types of conditioning: classic, and behavioral or operant. Classic conditioning has been achieved when we reflexively respond to a stimulus; a famous example of classic conditioning involves the dogs, of Russian physiologist Ivan Pavlov, which salivated when a bell was rung for food, even when no food was present. Behavioral or operant conditioning occurs when we are rewarded for a response, such as a good grade, with the sense of achievement making that response.
