Penn Hills School District follows closely standards set out by the Pennsylvania Department of Education.

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.

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 Help Your Child Succeed in School
The Office of Early Childhood Education in NYC produced a brochure which talks about many things parents can do to greatly encourage their children socially and emotionally which will greatly help them throughout their school years. It has often been pointed out that an emotionally supportive environment at home does wonders for any child in school. Here are a few ideas to help support your child both emotionally and socially. It is important that your child learns how to recognize and respond to emotions in healthy ways. Playing games to teach your child to identify these emotions, whether happy, sad, angry, frustrated, etc. is important. Also teaching them what to do when they feel that way can help them in amazing ways as they grow. Other supportive helps such as, teaching your child how to make choices, such as deciding between two types of sandwiches, and helping them know what to expect in their daily schedule will help to build an emotionally supportive environment at home from which they can spring-board into a school setting.
