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: Advanced Placement Scoring at a Glance
Advanced Placement courses are offered at most high schools with hundreds of thousands of students enrolling to help get a jumpstart on college curriculum and dreams. Colleges and universities view AP coursework as the superior choice because of the increased rigor found in these advanced placement classes. By scoring successfully on the AP exam, you can save on college expenses by earning college credit and skipping introductory classes. AP exams are scored 1-5 with 1 being the lowest and 5 being extremely well qualified. Qualified means that the student has proven himself or herself capable of introductory level college work. Many college and universities grant credit for scores of 3, 4, or 5. There is a multiple-choice section that is scored by the computer and a free-response section that is scored by college professors and experienced AP teachers. The total scores from both sections combine together to form a composite score that is then translated into the 5-point scale. To learn more about Advanced Placement courses, talk to your guidance counselor and AP teachers at your school.
