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.

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: Examples of Adaptations
Adaptations are modifications made to lesson plans or learning activities to help meet the diverse needs of individual students. In an early childhood lesson on friendship, each student draws a picture of one of his or her friend. Everyone talks about his or her picture and the friend he or she drew, emphasizing answers to the questions, such as what does it mean to be a friend, what do you like about your friend, what has your friend done to make you feel good etc. One adaptation is that the teacher can display many visuals of friends helping each other and working together to illustrate the point that friendships allow society to run smoothly. This will be particularly helpful for children who learn more effectively with visuals or who have hearing impairments. Another example of an adaptation for this lesson is to implement a group aspect, which would be helpful for children who are uncomfortable speaking in front of the whole group.
