Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Aliquippa District Curriculum
Focusing on literacy, reading comprehension in Grades 3 to 5 involves being able to distinguish between fiction and nonfiction, and to be able to tell the difference between facts and opinions. By middle school, in order for students to be successful in reading comprehension, they should be able to discern the components of fiction, and the components of nonfiction. They are expected to be able to interpret the main points the author makes to argue their position, as well as knowing the difference between facts and opinions.
Successful students become skilled at reading and comprehending fiction, nonfiction, drama, and poetry from a wide variety of sources. They are able to analyze and draw conclusions from the material they read. In addition, students should be able to synthesize the results into a completely new product of their own, such as a paper or story of their own. Development of an appropriate academic vocabulary aids students to achieve those goals of reading comprehension and writing.

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: Critical Reading In and Out of School
Skilled reading is valuable for people outside school, as well as for students while they are still in school. Employers require that employees be able to read instruction manuals in the workplace and use training manuals to move forward, in all different types of jobs and careers. In daily life, people read for information and pleasure, whether catching up on the daily news and sports through newspapers, or reading the latest magazines. Critical reading of these sources involves asking questions, clarifying assumptions and connecting the material to other sources.
