Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Economy District Curriculum
Students in middle school are introduced to increasingly more complex tasks in reading, writing, math and science. They are introduced to geometry, algebra and are expected to apply analytic thought to what they have read. Junior high students are offered more electives than those in elementary school. Junior high students begin deciding what they want to study in high school and beyond so that they can select the best courses and learning paths for them. Students in junior high, like those in elementary and high school, take exams to identify proficiency in core subjects and students who need remedial attention.
High school students are offered many courses in the Ambridge Area School District. They are provided courses not only with many different career and vocational focuses, but also with various depths, offering Honors and Advanced Placement courses for those students who would benefit from them. Special needs students in high school, as in elementary and junior high school, are accommodated and provided for along with Gifted students and those learning English as a second language.

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.

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 Study for an Exam
Studying for exams can be difficult, but given a few tricks and tips, it can be made a much easier task. First of all, study early and often. Review notes taken in class and homework assignments presented over the chapter being tested on. Memorize key vocabulary, dates or other information. This can be made easier using flashcards of phonemic devices such as songs, alliterations, rhymes, word plays, and other methods. For timeline type information, drawing it out like a map or using pictures or icons to jog your memory about different things in a specific order may help. Also creating a chant or song can help with lists and things that must be remembered in order. With all said and done, be sure to get a good night’s sleep before your test and remember that taking a test is as much a part of learning as class time.
