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: Scholarship Search
Junior and senior year of high school can be intimidating to say the least. Not only are students expected to perform top notch in school, they must deal with added life pressures that come with age, responsibility, and change. One of the biggest questions facing many high school upper classman is how to pay for college education. With tuition increasing by the year, higher education can seem completely out of reach. Especially for a student who isn’t used to looking at bills and juggling finances. With that in mind, scholarships can be a wonderful option. While some are only worth 200 to 500 dollars, these small scholarships add up and, when calculated in the number of hours you would have to work at McDonald’s to earn the same amount, can be quite significant. Searching for scholarships can be quite daunting, however, since there are so many students seeking them and so many qualifications on each one. Most high schools have resources for students who want to apply for scholarships. The scholarships that are often easier to be considered for are local ones given by local businesses, schools and organizations or funds.
