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: Classroom Reading Strategies
In many elementary classrooms, teachers have different rules as to how much material students are required to read, and some even allowed readers to stop and “popcorn” someone in the middle of a paragraph. This is a flawed approach that is losing popularity. Allowing students to choose other students to read can create tension and embarrassment amongst students, or students may always predictably pick their friends to read. Some teachers would have each student read a paragraph (or other set amount of text) and follow an order when reading (for example, the order they are seated in or alphabetical order). This isn’t a great strategy either because if students know ahead of time the section they will be reading, they will practice reading it to themselves over and over again and not pay attention to the rest of the text, while those who do not have an assigned reading may not pay attention at all. Teachers need to consider small-group strategies when deciding how to approach oral reading in their classrooms.
