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.

As our world becomes more technical, it is important that students are proficient in mathematics. Parents need to encourage their children and help them understand the importance of mathematics. Most importantly, children need to learn to solve problems, to communicate mathematically, and to understand how to reason. To help your child understand mathematics and develop confidence, you can provide support in the following ways: remind them that there are many ways to solve problems. Encourage your child to explore different ways to solve a problem. Wrong answers are helpful in understanding math because when a child understands why he or she made a mistake, then how to find the correct answer becomes clearer. Suggest that your child take risks and solve difficult problems. Be available to guide him or her when mathematics problems are hard. Practice mental math with your child because being able to figure out things without pencil and paper is very helpful. Teach your child how to use a calculator and other appropriate computational tools.
