Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
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.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
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: How to Stay Safe When You’re Home Alone
Do you come home to an empty house? There are things that you can do to be safe. First of all, make sure you always know how to get in contact with your parent or guardian. If that is impossible, make sure you can get hold of a safe neighbor that your parent or guardian has approved as a safe person in the case you will need something. Talk to your parent(s) or guardian about a plan and how to stay safe. It is their responsibility to make sure you are taken care of, so they should have some ideas. Know your address and phone number. If there is ever an emergency and you need to call 9-1-1 you will need this information. Don’t give your location to friends or strangers when you are by yourself. This applies if you’re walking on the street or online. Be careful not to let people know that you will be home alone. Don’t invite people over or open your door to strangers while you are by yourself. These things should help to keep you safe until your parent or guardian comes home.
