SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points

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: Considerations for Hiring a Private Tutor
When deciding whether to employ a tutor, a parent needs to think about a few important things. First, understanding the goals of tutoring will be helps to create a plan. Deciding the subjects that require tutoring and how it can support learning in other areas also helps for planning private instruction. With private tutors you will have an educational professional who also has expertise in their field of instruction. Oftentimes, students do not learn effectively from the instructional approaches their teacher is using. It may be that individualized instruction succeeds in instilling the content and growing a student's ability, and confidence.
