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: Should You Write a Resume?
Not every college requires a resume, and some don’t even recommend them, but almost every college will accept one, so it’s probably a good idea to write one, especially when you consider what a resume does for you. A resume provides an easy-to-read, one-page document that highlights not only an applicant’s extracurricular involvement, but also various positive qualities associated with these activities. Many of these qualities might not be addressed elsewhere, and they are all good and worth addressing. For example, involvement in a sport shows dedication and teamwork, and if the student was involved for more than one season, or became a team captain, or won an award, that shows even more positive qualities. Similarly, being involved with a club shows many essential qualities. Of course, highlighting stronger qualities makes a stronger resume, and highlighting activities that demonstrate multiple positive qualities will accomplish this.
