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 Choose Your High School Classes
While it may seem obvious what classes you want to take in high school, some things can be confusing, like what electives and in what order classes should be taken. With so many course offerings and so many requirements, how do you decide whether to focus on getting into Honors classes, taking that extra year of math, or going one level up for an AP class, or even choosing to take a college course? With so many questions and options, it is important to ask your school guidance counselors for information to make sure your decisions are doable and will allow you to graduate on time. While it is not always necessary to take the hardest classes, some Honors and advanced classes, as well as college courses, may benefit you in the future. You may be recognized for more scholarships or these classes may eventually prepare you or qualify you to take courses that will be crucial in your career path. While thinking about such courses, make sure that you calculate your work load and what you can handle as well. Remember, if English is your thing, maybe you can focus on that while you take regular math, or vise versa.
