Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Dunmore District Curriculum
Because some students need special helps that are not available in a regular classroom, there are programs for gifted students to be challenged, there are special education programs for those who need a modified curriculum or study situation, and resources for students who are learning English as a Second Language. These programs are offered after students are identified who need the assistance and a personalized learning plan is made for them to progress with. The goal is to ensure that every student can meet all learning standards detailed within the curriculum.
Students in the Dunmore School District are taught core courses in reading, writing, math, and science. They are also exposed to various arts, including music, theater, dance, and visual arts. Additionally, students have classes in social studies, finances, technology, health, physical education, the fine and performing arts, and many extracurricular activities to also participate in. With these classes, students are able to receive an education based on standards designed to prepare them for college and career.

Dunmore District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
At Dunmore School District, students are encouraged to grow and learn as much as they can before progressing on after graduation from 12th grade. With this in mind, students are presented with courses in subjects that will equip them well and which are in accordance with the Pennsylvania Department of Education. To ensure that students are learning proficiently, PSSA and Keystone tests at appropriate grade levels are administered and used to help students stay up to speed.
We currently cover the following Dunmore-area school district: Dunmore 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 Understand Math
Let’s face it; math can be tricky. But if it is understood, the mystery can be left behind and replaced by a certain love, or at least tolerance, of the topic. Students have many different learning styles, and because of this, it may be important to find resources which can help with math understanding that fits into that learning style. If students are visual, finding examples and proofs that work out the math problem right in front of them could be helpful. If students do well with memorizing, it’s fine to memorize the formulas after having the problem explained. Even if students don’t remember why the formula works, they will remember that it does and that they’ve seen it. Tactile learners can often use manipulatives to understand concepts such as times tables. There are so many ways to help students in understanding math, even walking up and down stairs for addition and subtraction can help. A good teacher, tutor, or knowledgeable third party or adult can often significantly help students who are struggling with math. Help them understand and it will go a long way.
