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: How School Districts Inform Parents about Their Curriculum
With the emergence of the Common Core Standards and school districts paying extra attention to communicating with parents, most school districts regularly update and post information about their curriculum on their websites. They may give an overview of their curriculum as a whole and their academic philosophy as well as descriptions of individual content areas. This is particularly important in the Common Core era, where there are drastic changes such as a more rigorous curriculum, more writing, an increase in more complex informational texts being read, topics being taught and learned in greater depth in math, more problem solving, etc. To parse out each content area and grade level, school districts will develop curriculum maps and guides that break down subjects into units. These may include the relevant standards, the learning goals or objectives, the essential questions that guide the unit, the learning activities that students are engaged in, the enduring understandings that are expected to be gained, the skills that students should acquire, the materials and resources that are needed, and how students are assessed.
