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: The Different Learning Styles of Students
There are several learning styles and not all of them are easily incorporated into a classroom setting. Many times children are inhibited by the fact the teacher is not accommodating their learning style. There are 3 distinct learning styles that are combined with 7 categories of intelligences. The three types of learning styles are visual learners which is the category described above, auditory learner, and tactile learners. The categories of multiple intelligences are visual, verbal, logical, bodily, musical, interpersonal, and intrapersonal. It is nearly impossible for any teacher to cover each and every combination of learning preferences in any single lesson. This may seem like and impossible problem to solve. Talk to your child have them take a learning styles test there are many available on-line; then talk to your child's teacher and school counselor to figure out the best way to help your child become successful in their academic pursuits.
