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 Connect Through Email Communication
It is an important skill in today's world where much communication happens through email and other virtual components to be able to establish connections and build relationships utilizing that media. Here are some helpful pointers to assist you. Start messages or emails with the recipient's first name and close with a simple signature such as "Thanks, John." This helps personalize a message. If you use a smartphone to respond to emails, add a signature into the phone such as "sent from my phone, please excuse brevity or misspellings." This can help others recognize that you might have been writing on the fly. If you are at a computer, spell check messages that you send - that can go a long way to increasing your online reputation. Don't use slang or acronyms in any student or business related responses, as this can be confusing and unprofessional. Finally, think about limiting access to online social media accounts so the whole world cannot see the private social messages that you send.
