SchoolTutoring Academy 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.

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: Parental Science Fair Survival Tips
Parents can become as stressed by a child’s science fair project as the child. There are ways to help both child and parent survive. First, parents need to remember that the overall project is the child’s. With this in mind, parents can help a child set up a schedule for different stages of the projects. Set them up with a calendar with important dates and goals placed in the correct place. Parents need to also remember and remind the child that there is no perfect project. Scientists have come across some of the most amazing discoveries when on the way to another. Finally, to help ease the child’s nerves, allow them to practice presenting their project to family members. Then be ready to ask questions, like a judge would, to help the child be better prepared on the day of the fair.
