Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Harrisburg District Curriculum
The Harrisburg School District uses two different Math which are based on using real world applications to illustrate math concepts. The strategy is designed so that teachers and students are all progressing through the same material. Science education also stresses practical application along with the development of conceptual understanding. Language Arts is arranged so that literacy and communication are broadly developed.
Students within the same class may all have different strengths and instruction should illustrate concepts using different strategies. For example, some students will remember the letters in a word by recognizing the shape of letters and how they look. Those students may benefit by using a system where words and letters are colored for emphasis. Still others will react more to difference is the way letters sound, and some students will need to practice writing the letters or using a sand tray to really learn them.

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: Why Are There So Many Instructional Approaches
Effective teachers use many different ways to teach the concepts and skills students need to learn. Some learn best by what they see, others learn by what they hear, and still others learn best by making something or teaching another student about what they know. For example, some students can learn math facts by drawing pictures, using graphics and color, while others need to hear them; perhaps by singing a rap song or rhyme. Still others make up dances based upon number facts, or build a math calculator to illustrate the point. Skilled tutors can find methods that are the best fit for each student.
