Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Georgetown Township District Curriculum
Elementary students learn Math through the Houghton-Mifflin Math Expression program. This program provides students with the basis of number theory and applies these skills through counting, number operations, simple geometry, measurement, and algebra. Reading is also a large focus of the elementary students’ education. Teachers guide students through the reading process using skills such as visualization and inferences to allow students to make sense of the text they are reading.
Middle and high school students expand on the stepping stones of elementary school to apply skills to real world problems. Advanced Placement classes and career-related electives allow students to test out their interests and begin to decide where their future will take them. Big ideas, open-ended questions, and essential knowledge play a critical role in the curriculum for these advancing students and help students develop the type of analytic and critical thinking skills needed in college and career.

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 Beat the Summer Relapse
While students and their families are enjoying the warmer weather and free time, it’s important to keep those academic skills sharp. It has been widely proven that students can lose up to three months of academic progress during the summer break. This can be easily thwarted with some fun and educational activities. Start a neighborhood lemonade stand and let students measure ingredients, count change, and write advertisements. Create a story with sidewalk chalk and retell the story to family and friends. Find a program at a local library, community arts organization, or sports team so that students stay active and around their peers. Weekend outings to state or national parks, historic sites, and local cultural events also help keep the brain engaged. Ultimately, the key to beating the summer relapse is finding everyday ways to incorporate and practice the skills taught during the school year.
