# 8th Grade Tutoring Programs

## District-Aligned Eighth Grade Tutoring Programs

SchoolTutoring Academy helps prepare students so that they can achieve success in Grade 8, as well as future high school subjects. Students will work individually with a tutor who has been chosen by an Academic Director to build on their strengths and improve on areas that may need to be developed further. Our certified tutors have experience working with students of all abilities. While some students may want to focus their sessions on enriching their education, others may want to revisit concepts that may still be unclear.

Our Grade 8 Tutoring Programs are built around three main subjects: Math, English and Science.

Students will be introduced to the stylistic differences between poems, short stories and reports and the different strategies we use to analyze these types of literature.
