Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Girard District Curriculum
The science curriculum introduces students to topics and investigation methods in biology, physical science, chemistry and physics. Students explore concepts such as energy and waves. Reflection, refraction, diffraction, and other characteristics of waves are explored. Learners work with electricity to determine how electrons move and how resistors transfer energy. The conservation of energy is also explored, with students learning how to quantify both kinetic and gravitational energy.
The visual arts curriculum in Girard introduces students to various aspects of creating art. In middle school, students work on developing the skills necessary to demonstrate technical skill and craftsmanship in their chosen medium. Students experiment with various techniques to create original art. To gain inspiration, learners examine the work of their peers, as well as seminal works in art history to get a feel for how other artists have developed their craft. The process of planning a piece of artwork is also emphasized.

Girard District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Girard City Schools includes one elementary school, one intermediate school, and a junior/senior high school. Each school facility affords students a safe place in which they can learn and grow. Teachers and staff members work hard to create an environment in which all students are comfortable, feel welcomed, and are respected. There is a strong emphasis on developing learners that are responsible, critical thinkers. To achieve this end, students participate in a challenging curriculum that prepares them for the rigors of college and career. Classroom learning is supplemented by real-life activities that encourage discovery and exploration, and help students make connections between what they learn in class and how that is applied to real life.
We currently cover the following Girard-area school district: Girard City Schools.

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: Helping Teens Develop Good Sleep Habits
Even if they are tired, it can be difficult for teens to fall asleep before 11:00, so they should try to practice relaxing habits before they go to bed. Parents should ban their children from using electronics, such as computers, iPhones, cell phones, and even TVs, at least an hour before they go to sleep; these items can greatly inhibit sleep. Although it would be unrealistic to expect teens to practice mediation or the like, it would be beneficial for them to read, listen to soft music, or take a warm bath before going to bed. Also, the lights should be turned down low. Parents should make sure their children have their homework done well before their bedtime (this can be tricky if they are involved in a lot of activities) and that they are not overwhelmed with too many extracurricular activities. So that teens can get as much sleep as possible, they should have their backpacks and belongings prepared and clothes laid out from the night before.
