Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Elyria District Curriculum
In Math, the standards include practices for making sense of problems and solving them, reasoning abstractly and quantitatively, constructing viable arguments and critiquing the reasoning of others, modeling, using appropriate tools, seeking precise answers, looking for and making use of structure and mathematic reasoning. These eight practices are research based and provide the basis for the standards for students to master in mathematical operations.
In English/Language Arts, students must learn to read, write, speak, listen, and use language proficiently using a variety of literature, trade books, magazines, and many other types of material. They must also understand what they read, be able to evaluate the material, and be able to apply skills in reading and writing. Being able to read, write, speak, and listen with proficiency are the fundamental building blocks for creative and purposeful expression in language.

Keeping Informed: Recent Elyria Educational News
- Bring Your Own Device Day - Ely Elementary Fifth Grade students are piloting an innovative concept in the use of technology—bringing their own devices to use at the school. Students may bring their own personal computers, I-pods, smart phones, I-pads, or any other device to connect to the world wide web. These may be used in class as instructional tools as facilitated by the teacher. These devices are being used more as learning tools even out of school, rather than just for entertainment purposes. The project helps the school’s existing technology tools go further and has a positive impact on the environment by saving paper for instruction.
- COSI on Wheels - To reinforce Science skills and to give students learning opportunities and experiences, COSI on Wheels Columbus Ohio’s Center of Science and Industry, visited Franklin Elementary recently. After instruction by the COSI on Wheels staff, students were able to design their own water turbines, choosing from a selection of blades. Students then tested the power and lift of the chosen blades. One team’s water turbine won the competition by lifting their bucket further and faster than the other team.
- Students Against Bullying - Bullying is not to be tolerated was the message that the Elyria High School group “Students Against Bullying” wanted to communicate with their 100 balloon launch. Each balloon contained inspirational messages to help stomp out bullying. This group wants to help raise awareness of bullying and join the growing movement in schools across the nation that seek to change such behaviors.
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.

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 Use Comparative/Superlative Forms Correctly
When comparing items the comparative form using the words “less” or “more” or the suffix “-er” when the comparison contains two items or people. The superlative form using words “most” or “least” or the suffix “-est” should be used when comparing three or more items. An example would be: Comparative: John is taller than Eric. Superlative: John is the tallest one of the quartet.
