Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Elizabethtown-Kitley District Curriculum
The curriculum details each subject on a grade-by-grade basis, establishing clear expectations for learning in each subject. In Math, these expectations run the course of operational and procedural problem-solving strategies in numerical and algebraic operations, geometric functions and measurement, and means of analyzing and communicating about quantitative data. In Science, the learning expectations encompass the processes of scientific inquiry, foundational content knowledge in biology, earth and space science, and properties of the physical world.
In English, students receive an education which is meant to develop their literacy and communication skills within all content areas. The focus on reading uses both fiction and non-fiction to develop students' abilities to read and respond to texts analytically and to determine ways to evaluate the points of view of authors.

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 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: Improve Writing by Eliminating These Words and Phrases
Being a good writer takes a lot of knowledge of writing strategies and a whole lot of practice. Since younger students don’t yet have either of these things, they can sometimes come to rely on overused words and phrases that detract from their message. Words such as “like,” “things,” “stuff,” and “very” are all extremely vague and do not provide the reader with any kind of valuable information. Each word also gives the impression that the writer is unfamiliar with the topic about which they are writing and that they have a limited vocabulary. Phrases such as “sort of” and “kind of” are similarly offensive, and provide no real value for readers. Beginning writers can also overuse phrases. “My paper is going to be about” is a much-used phrase when students don’t know how else to begin a writing assignment. This is a major no-no because rather than introducing the actual topic, it tells the reader that you will be telling them in the story. Instead of using these overused words and phrases, students should instead use specific, relevant terms that shed light on their position or opinion.
