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: Reading Substitution Errors
When assessing students’ reading—particularly when using the Direct Reading Assessment (DRA)—teachers are often tasked with keeping a running record of not only the errors students make while reading aloud but the types of errors. These reading errors are called miscues, and one such type is a substitution error. The process of identifying the errors and keeping a running record is called miscue analysis. A substitution miscue occurs when a student does not know a word in a passage and substitutes it with a different word; the word that is substituted may or may not make sense in the context of the passage. It is important for teachers to note whether or not students substitute words that are logical within the text; if the student uses a word that does make sense, this shows that he/she comprehends the reading. An example of such a type of substitution is as follows: “Andy loved the sweet scent of chocolate chip cookies/Andy loved the sweet smell of chocolate chip cookies.” However, if the substituted word is out of context, the teacher must first work with the student on understanding the meaning of the text before focusing on the accuracy of the word.
