Perry Community School District is greatly committed to enhancing instruction and learning with the use of technology through its one-to-one initiative that puts a device into the hands of each child. Perry uses several assessments, including the state standardized assessments, the Perry Math Test for kindergarteners and students new to the district, the FAST Literacy Assessments (K-5), and the Learning.com Technology Assessments (grades five and eight). The Perry Math Test and FAST exam are taken at the beginning and end the school year to gauge students growth.

Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
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.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
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: Humorous Children’s Books
Give these books to children to give them a laugh. “Laura Numeroff’s 10-Step Guide to Living with Your Monster”, written by Laura Numeroff and illustrated by Nate Evans, tells readers how to buy their monster, take him to the vet, name him, feed him, play with him, go places with him, train him, sing with him, groom him, and put him to bed. The book is filled with fun, colorful illustrations. In Mo Willems’s “Pigs Make Me Sneeze!” Gerald the elephant is worried because he believes that he is allergic to his best friend Piggy. He is relieved to learn, when examined by a doctor, that he just has a cold! Another book that tells the hilarious adventures of Piggy and Gerald is entitled “Today I Will Fly.” In this story, Piggy is determined to fly, but Gerald repeatedly tells him that he will not be able to. When Piggy thinks he does fly, Gerald tells him that he jumped—not flew. At the end of the story, Piggy “flies” with the help of a bird.
