Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Harlan District Curriculum
The Harlan Community School District mathematics curriculum includes the learning of formulas. Students study abstract and concrete ideas while using graphs, analyzing, or using numeric and verbal skills. This skill begins when student begin assigning values to the number of items in a set. Soon they learn how to plug numbers in simple formulas. As the student progresses through school their skills increase. By learning how to use formulas, these students are being trained to be better problem-solvers.
At Harlan Community School District, many different types of literature are studied in the Language Arts curriculum. The students look at myths, letters, speeches, poetry, plays, short stories and so much more. They also show the students how they can use literature to help back up what they are learning in other subjects. The students study writings from Native Americans, John F. Kennedy, plus they read books about scientific topics. Students learn how to differently comprehend and analyze fiction and non-fiction.

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: Jobs for High School Students
The majority of jobs available to high school students are positions such as cashiers, servers, fast food restaurant workers, and lifeguards. No jobs are a bad choice for teens, as they teach them responsibility and help them gain independence; however, students can dig a little deeper if they would like a job outside this realm. One great idea is for students to seek jobs that align with a career they are interested in pursuing; there may be internships available for high school students. Paid internships are not always available, so teens and their parents will have to decide if they would like to gain valuable experience through unpaid internships and set the financial aspect aside. Those who would like to work with children, for example, may pursue jobs such as tutors, library workers, camp counselors, and coaches of young children’s sports teams.
