Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Johnstown District Curriculum
The Common Core Curriculum is focused on ensuring that students have the skills they need to pursue college or other post high school training, and to be able to enter the workforce. In English and Language Arts, students learn to read, write, listen and speak using correct English. Other expectations of the curriculum include the development of critical analysis and an understanding of both informational text and literature. Writing is emphasized so that students are able to write effectively in narrative, persuasive and informational styles.
In Mathematics, students are on a progressive path of learning a limited number of math subjects in an intensive manner. Math subjects include computation, algebra, geometry, probability, measurement and statistics. The goal is that children will build on their math skills in these areas so that by twelfth grade they are mathematically literate and can successfully use problem solving to do higher math.

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.
