SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points

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 Music Positively Impacts Academics
Students that excel academically more often than not participate in music. The association between music and academics is strong. Instrumental and vocal music students demonstrate improved math and reading abilities over their peers. This is reflected in the higher average scores for music students on standardized tests of math and reading. The study of music is also correlated with an expanded worldview. Music students have a better understanding of the world in which they live because of their studies of music from around the world. Solo and ensemble performances help students refine their performance skills, while also learning how to work with other musicians and musical directors to perform music in a proficient manner. Additionally, research shows that the study of music is associated with improved decision-making skills. Children enrolled in music courses are less likely to engage in dangerous behaviors that negatively impact their health and wellness.
