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 Importance of Positive Reinforcement in Schools
Student misbehavior can be the cause of numerous educational barriers. Teachers must waste time addressing the behavior, either during or after school hours. Other students may be distracted by the misbehaving student. Someone could get hurt by an ill-tempered pupil, even if inadvertently. And of course, the offending students typically misses many days of school due to punishments. Schools often spend too much time and money managing student behavior. Most of the time, administration and teachers focus on negative behavior and consequences; however, much psychological research has identified the importance of positive reinforcement to prevent misbehavior. High schools throughout the nation have adopted Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS) programs, and they have had much success. The theory behind PBIS is that humans react positively to recognition and good attention.
