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: College Students and Roommates
When a student first prepares to go to college, they may begin to wonder about the roommate they will be assigned. This new person in their life is a stranger. Many roommates do not have any problems but this will not happen without some level of compromise and respect for each other’s needs. If there are problems parents need to help their child realize that resident assistance may be able to help them get over their differences or help with other concerns. Students need to realize that they do not have to put up with physical or verbal abuse. If this occurs, the student should go to the RA or the dean of students and request a change of housing. The student is not responsible for the other roommate’s belongings or for waking them up for class. With the student aware of these things the chances of their having a successful time at college will be more likely.
