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: What Should Be on a College Resume?
A college resume is a very useful document for an admissions committee. A resume is, essentially, an overview of the student’s extracurricular activities. It is a single-page, single-spaced (though double-spacing between sections can be helpful) and should have a clean, easy-to-scan appearance. The applicant’s name and contact information, including address, email, and phone number, should be centered at the top along with the student’s grade point average. If the student has attended multiple schools, give the grade point average at each and identify the schools. The rest of the resume should be broken into a small number of sections, maybe four to six, which each contain similarly-themed activities. The important thing to remember when compiling these sections is impact. A good rule of thumb is that each item included in each section should demonstrate multiple qualities in the applicant. Participation in sports is great, but leadership, long-term dedication, and awards in sports are better, for example.
