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 to Use Metacognition to Succeed in School
Thinking about thinking is essential for learning. This type of thinking is called metacognition. Students who practice metacognition, and work toward improving their thinking, will achieve many of their academic goals. Metacognition is taking charge of your learning. This concept and skill is more likely to exist as students progress to higher grades, such as senior high school and college. Some strategies include assimilating new information with existing knowledge, and self-monitoring and self-assessing during the learning process. To achieve this type of thinking, students can create plans for learning. They should identify what they need to know, what they already know, and what knowledge they lack. Students can keep a journal for their thoughts, a place to write down their experiences, mistakes, and other insights. Group discussions about the thought process can be a great way for modeling metacognition. Talking aloud about insights and processes can teach others valuable lessons. One of the most important facets of metacognition is self-monitoring. Students should create a plan for learning, a strategy for attainment, and a method to check achievement.
