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: Common Core - ELA at a Glance
The Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts and Literacy promotes skills and knowledge for students to be successful in college, career, and life upon graduation. There are a few shifts in the new Common Core Curriculum in the area of ELA. Now students will have regular practice with complex texts and their academic language. Text complexity as it connects to reading comprehension and academic vocabulary will become a new focus. Reading, writing, and speaking using evidence-based text citations are another key component of the ELA Common Core. Students need to be able to use their prior knowledge, opinion, and experiences in order to create effective argumentative and informative writing. Students must learn to use evidence-based writing as part of their analysis. Lastly students will build knowledge through content rich nonfiction. Students will now be exposed to more informational texts as an important part of building their own content knowledge.
