Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Berwyn District Curriculum
In Mathematics, the Common Core curriculum encourages teachers to pursue a greater depth of instruction while focusing on fewer topics within a school year. Beginning at the elementary school level, these standards emphasize basic concepts such as number and operations so that students master the foundations of mathematics before moving onto more advanced topics in high school.
The Language Arts curriculum also follows the Common Core. The standards focus on nonfiction reading and analytical writing in teaching students how to be critical readers and writers. The emphasis is on reading nonfiction and more complex texts to develop students’ ability to gather information and use evidence to support their claims while also expanding their vocabularies. Students continue to read fiction and write creatively, but the emphasis is not on these topics.

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: How to Choose a College
One of the most important things a student can do when choosing a college is to visit the actual colleges to which s/he intends to apply. It might sound obvious, but many students skip this step, relying on name recognition and ranking of colleges. Visits are easy to set up; most colleges have calendars on their websites that show when visits are offered. Sometimes, students don’t even have to register and can just show up. Stepping onto a college campus and experiencing the tone of the school can be very informative for students. Some liken the feeling to stepping into a first house or sitting behind the wheel of a first car; students often can tell, instinctively, whether a college is a good fit for them, but these instincts are informed by real, tangible considerations. Even aesthetic considerations might affect a student’s decision to attend. Whether the campus feels warm and welcoming or more formal can have a real impact on a student.
