Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Conshohocken District Curriculum
There are students within the district who do not speak English as their first language. These students are taught through an ESL teacher who come into their classrooms and works with them individually on current classroom material so that they do not fall behind in their studies. The goal is to help these students learn to use English effectively and be able to participate in class and pass academic standards for their various grades.
Students in middle and high school build on what they have learned throughout elementary school. High school math focuses on algebra, geometry, and statistics. There is an increasing effort to tie these different courses to other topics such as technology, graphic design, and financial literacy that help students see math’s functions. These students are able to take world languages, honors or advanced classes in core subjects such as math and English, and study other electives such as the arts, graphic design, computer programming, business technology and many others.

Conshohocken District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Students from Colonial School District receive information based on the learning model entitled Understanding by Design. In this system there is an emphasis placed on greater understanding on the bigger concepts and goals instead of just the individual steps or pieces of information. Students are also encouraged to improve critical thinking skills and are given many opportunities to work on projects independently and collaboratively so they develop the necessary academic independence along with an ability to work with others.
We currently cover the following Conshohocken-area school district: Colonial School District.

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 Use Word and Name Mnemonics for Memorization
There are so many “tricks” out there for memorization. One of them is a Name Mnemonic; another similar one is a Word Mnemonic. Both of these take a word (in some cases a name) and use each letter to signify one of the things you must remember. One of the most famous of these is Roy G. Biv, which is the acronym for the colors of the rainbow. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet are all accommodated in order. You can also use a name, and some people even use a sentence in which the first letter of each word has significance. In either case, you can formulate your list of things that must be memorized and look carefully to find a creative name or word to tie them all together. Once that is done, if you need a visual you can imagine or draw that person or word in such a way that it relates to the set of information you are memorizing. This will jog your memory even further and take the mnemonic to a whole different level and effectiveness.
