These skills include, but are not limited to, engaging with a variety of fiction and non-fiction, researching texts, and creating text and digital media projects independently and collaboratively.

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: Teaching Kids to Write
When students first begin writing non-fiction texts in the earliest grades they are encouraged to write what they know, which means that they are encouraged to write about themselves. Encouraging students to do this establishes problematic writing behaviors that many students take into college. The problem with encouraging students to write about themselves is that they don’t have the self-awareness or the writing skills that they need to write successfully. Students know themselves well, but they don’t understand how others see them. This leads them to write autobiographical content that makes sense to them, but might not make sense to others. Instead of encouraging young students to write about themselves, teachers should encourage them to write about other non-fiction topics. Eventually, after they have developed better self-awareness and writing skills, students can write about themselves.
