Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Akron District Curriculum
Akron’s Mathematics curriculum aims to combine teaching basic mathematical skills with developing problem-solving and critical thinking skills that will be applicable to all subject areas. The school district actively encourages teachers to use technology to capture the attention of their students; enVision math online games are a key component of the math curriculum. Other suggested online resources include PBS Teachers Math and Illuminations.
Akron’s commitment to the Language Arts is manifested in its SPARK program, which prepares young children to enter kindergarten. This program sends language specialists into the children’s homes, encouraging literacy and actively involving the parents. This commitment to literacy continues through all level of the school. For example, Akron Public Schools participate in the 100 Book Challenge sponsored by the American Reading Company. Through this program, schools set goals for reading, monitor the students’ progress, and award them appropriately.

Akron District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The schools in Akron operate under the Common Core Curriculum for major subject area teaching and learning. This curriculum was to teach students fundamentals upon which can be built higher-order, critical thinking abilities. Each subject is designed with strands of learning that students gain a deep understanding in. Strands of learning include writing in Language Arts, or algebraic thinking in Math. The process of building knowledge which students use to master advanced topics enables the development of students’ reflective thinking abilities.
We currently cover the following Akron-area school district: Akron Public Schools.

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: The Importance of Sports
Playing on a team is a key part of the educational experience. Whether it is a dodge ball team during Physical Education class or a varsity baseball team, students need the experience of cooperating with one another. The invaluable experience of relying on teammates and working together to achieve a goal is something that students will carry with them into the workplace, family life, and beyond. Managers look for team players, employees who can happily cooperate with one another, delegate responsibility appropriately, and take responsibility for their own contribution to the overall goal.
