Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hamburg Township District Curriculum
One of the most important aspects of the elementary Language Arts curriculum is the use of the Guided Reading program. Guided Reading involves meeting with small groups of students who read on similar levels to work on strategies and skills. Students are given a Developmental Reading Assessment, or DRA, to determine their reading level. Students are then grouped together based on this level and other assessment data. Students meet daily with the teacher where they read a common book and work together to analyze the plot.
As students enter middle school, these Guided Reading groups become more of a student-led literature circle. Student reading levels will continue to be assessed by the teacher and students will be grouped based on this and other assessment data. However, students will do much more individual reading in order to prepare for their meetings with the other students in their group.

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.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
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 Encourage a Positive School Attitude
It has been scientifically proven through observation and factual data that students who have a positive attitude about school perform better academically. One of the best ways to promote a positive attitude towards school is to start early when students are at a young age. This involves activities that will create an inquisitive mind and get students excited about learning. Once your child is in the public school system, it will really help for the family to be involved in extracurricular activities at the school. If a student sees that school is fun for his or her parents, the same attitude will pass on to them. As students continue along their educational journey, parents should remain involved throughout all school grades in order to show students the importance of education.
