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: Benefits of AP Coursework
Many high schools offer Advanced Placement (AP) courses so that students can get a jump-start on college level work. These courses are more challenging than normal high school classwork that is commensurate with the rigors of collegiate coursework. Because AP courses require higher-level thinking skills, students that participate in them leave high school with enhanced academic abilities that will benefit them once they arrive in college. Additionally, many colleges and universities offer credit for AP coursework, so long as the student successfully passed the AP exam with a sufficient score. This means that students who take a number of AP classes in high school can begin college with a semester or year’s worth of college coursework already completed. By exploring various AP classes in high school, students likewise get the benefit of trying out various academic areas. This means they may be able to choose a major sooner and dive right into their chosen major once they reach college. This not only saves time, but money as well.
