Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Burke District Curriculum
Students in Burke also participate in an economics and personal finance curriculum. The focus of the curriculum is on building financial skills that allow students to make sound financial decisions. Basic economic concepts are covered, including opportunity costs, marginal costs and benefits, scarcity, and demand. Students also identify the role of consumers in a market economy. This includes examining the effect of competition on consumer activity and describing how consumers respond to incentives. Factors that impact income are explored as well.
The Burke family life curriculum gives elementary school students insight into the personal qualities and behaviors that promote healthy relationships. Kids learn about self-esteem and self-concept, identifying personal traits that make them unique and in which they can take pride. Students engage in activities that allow them to show respect for their peers, teachers, and family members, devising an understanding that everyone has strengths and weaknesses.

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: Benefits of Learning a Second Language
Many school districts have begun to implement language-learning programs that offer children at all levels – elementary, middle, and high school – the chance to learn a second language. The development of these programs is in part a reflection of the changing linguistic landscape in the United States, with more and more languages being spoken with every passing year. Another primary factor driving the creation of language programs is that doing so offers many benefits to students. As a result of learning a second language, linguistic areas of the brain grow and develop more neural connections. This, in turn, helps children hear language better, develop more robust vocabularies, and become more language sensitive. Studies show that learning multiple languages is good for memory and attention as well, which boost kids’ ability to perform well on other educational tasks such as math problems and reading. Children that learn a second language also gain valuable insight into other cultures and develop an appreciation for people unlike themselves.
