SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points

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: Benefits of Small Classes
Much research has been done on how schools can help students improve their achievement levels. While parental involvement is the single largest factor in student success, the number of children in a class is a significant factor as well. Studies show that students in the early elementary grades who are members of smaller classes demonstrate marked improvements on various measures of academic success. Standardized test scores are higher, class grades are improved, and attendance is better as well. The social benefits are also significant in that students in small classes are able to form stronger bonds with their peers. These academic and attendance gains are particularly evident in minority student populations. What’s more, the early gains that students in small classes experience last throughout their educational career.
