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: Topics in Financial Literacy
In financial literacy courses, various pathways to becoming an entrepreneur are examined, as are the various means by which students can gain experience related to their entrepreneurial field of work. The many opportunities for entrepreneurial pursuits on the Internet are also studied. Students examine the history of entrepreneurship, including a study of the personal stories of successful American businessmen and women. The advantages and disadvantages of becoming an entrepreneur are evaluated as well. Within this context, students explore their own personal interests and aptitudes to determine if they have what it takes to start their own business. Learners also become knowledgeable of various types of contracts. Students define elements of a contract, including the principles of offer, acceptance, and genuine agreement. Unilateral and bilateral contracts are discussed, as are void and voidable contracts. The consequences of breaching a contract are explored as well.
