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: Studying for an Anatomy Class
Numerous students have reported the difficulty they experience when studying for anatomy classes. There are 26 bones, 34 muscles, and 123 ligaments in the human hand alone. Memorizing these and other structures in the body can be time-consuming and require a lot of brain power. There are some tips that can help this process, however. The first tip is that you should set aside 810 hours per week outside of class to study. Although there are classes in which you may need less preparation time when it comes to assignments and tests, anatomy is not one of them. The second tip is an often repeated one: using flashcards can be a great help. Since anatomy classes usually require more memorization and less understanding of concepts, simple repetition can be the difference between receiving an A or B. Diagrams are another great study tool. If you enjoy drawing, you can make these as detailed as you like or you can simply print or copy pages from your textbook or websites.
