Educating Our Parents: Understanding the East Lake District Curriculum
District math courses are advanced and include Math 1 and 2 Advanced, Pre-Algebra, Algebra Honors, and Geometry Honors. These classes revolve around interactions, problem solving, and real-life scenarios. The goal in reading is for students to develop critical and close reading skills as well as fluency through integrated literary experiences. Students actively read texts of varying complexities, analyze literature and informational texts for several literary elements, write for different purposes and audiences using various appropriate strategies, and engage in collaborative learning.
East Lake Middle School Academy of Engineering (grades 6-8) offers courses in engineering, science, math, reading and language arts, and social studies as well as various electives. Engineering focuses on understanding and applying the science of technology, exploring electricity, figuring out solutions for energy and the environment, understanding flight and space, designing and modeling to solve problems, and being exposed to robotics. Science courses include earth and space, life science, the nature of science, and physical science.

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: Wikis vs. Blogs: A Comparison of Educational Tools
Wikis and blogs are popular educational technology tools, but what exactly are the differences between the two? The main difference is that wikis can be edited by anyone, while blogs can only be altered by the entry’s author(s). Because of this, a whole class of students can contribute to wikis, making them highly collaborative. On blogs, collaboration occurs primarily in the form of students posting in the ‘Comments’ section. Since anyone can contribute to and edit wikis, they have an unlimited number of authors, whereas blogs typically have one or a few authors. With information being constantly added to wikis, they continually grow, while blog posts stand alone and are only changed when the author(s) do so. Because wikis can be edited by anyone and everyone, teachers must have strict rules for how students use wikis and how they need to respect one another’s work and perspectives; of course, rules are needed with blogs as well, but they need not be quite as stringent. Both wikis and blogs offer some practice with writing, with blogs likely requiring more. However, wikis are a better tool for peer revision, as students can respond directly to lines of their peers’ texts.
