Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Harrison District Curriculum
Harrison’s English Language Arts Curriculum requires students to develop the ability to read closely and attentively in a wide range of fiction and non-fiction texts. Students learn how to take a stand on an author’s argument or document and use evidence from literature to support that stand. They analyze character traits, story plots and the voice/tone the literature is written in. Through engaging with such texts, student learn the reading, writing, and communication skills that they will use in their future.
Harrison’s math curriculum requires students to develop an understanding of core mathematics skills such as numeration, abstract reasoning, measurement and understanding of geometry, pattern recognition, and problem solving. Students build on their understanding of these skills as they move up grade-by-grade and are expected to be able to apply them at the college and career level by the time they graduate high school.

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: It’s Everybody’s History
When it comes to core subjects, history often gets lost in the shuffle. Not only is it not as glamorous as math, reading, and science, but it is often thought to be less practical than those subjects. People think of math, reading, and science as subjects that teach skills that can be applied to real-world situations. They think of history as stuff that happened a long time ago. Now more than ever it is necessary to give history its rightful place among other core subjects. Students who are entering a world that is more socially, culturally, and economically unified than ever need to understand how the world got that way. They also need to understand the events that have destroyed that unity in the past. Students can only learn these things by studying history, and they will only study history if we make it a priority.
