Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Elkhart District Curriculum
Academic rigor is built into the learning experience of Elkhart middle school students. They are required to take four core courses – math, language arts, science and social studies – in 7th and 8th grade. These are 64 minute long classes that span the entire academic year. Students who meet specific criteria may participate in the Honors section of these classes. Electives include a variety of music and art choices, industrial technology, and world languages.
High school graduation requirements are equally as challenging and include 6 credits respectively in each of the core curricular areas of math, science, and social studies. Additionally graduates must have successfully completed 8 language arts credits and 5 credits of electives that may be any combination of language, arts, technology or personal finance. Finally, two physical education credits, and a health and wellness credit must also be completed.

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: Organizational Tips for Students
Academic success is more attainable than most people realize – and often rests on mastering organizational skills as a prerequisite to learning. What follows are some valuable tips for getting and staying organized. Create a quiet study area within your home and schedule a regular study time. Make a calendar of assignments – and hang it where you can see it to remind you of pending work and when its due. Use a student assignment book. Take a few minutes each day to write down what was accomplished in class – a type of ‘school diary’. This is an excellent resource for staying on top of school work. And, make lists – even daily – of tasks to complete.
