Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lakewood District Curriculum
Lakewood City Schools’ curriculum is Ohio’s New Learning Standards and is currently transitioning to the Common Core State Standards which is a comprehensive, balanced progression of skills and key concepts in reading and mathematics. In addition, the Ohio Department of Education is revising the Science and Social Studies curricula to match the changes in English/Language Arts. All of these curricular changes will increase the focus on critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and creativity in all content areas.
In English/Language Arts, students must learn to language proficiently by reading, writing, speaking, listening, and using a variety of literature, non-fiction, and media. They must also understand, evaluate, and apply what they read. Being able to read, write, speak, and listen with proficiency are the fundamental building blocks for creative and purposeful expression in language around key to learn in all content areas. The goal is to enhance critical thinking through analytic reading.

Lakewood District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Lakewood City Schools follows Ohio’s New Learning Standards and is in the process of adopting the Common Core State Standards in Reading and Mathematics. Common Core State Standards were originated by teachers, parents, education experts, and other national educators and provide clear, consistent expectations for what students should be learning at each grade level in order to be prepared and successful for later endeavors in higher education and career paths. Regular assessments throughout the year help teachers to determine if each student has mastered the concepts and the data obtained from these assessments help to drive further instruction.
We currently cover the following Lakewood-area school district: Lakewood 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: Verb Tenses
English grammar has six basic verb tenses: past, present, future, present perfect, past perfect, and future perfect. When writing, correct verb tense needs to use the correct form of the verb in the context of the time frame of the writing. When writing of something that happened in the past, use past tense. If the writing is about the present, use present tense. In addition, verbs need to agree in number with the subjects. Incorrect Tense: Last month, Sally drives over to her best friend’s house. Corrected Version: Last month, Sally drove over to her best friend’s house. Since the event in the sentence happened “last month,” (in the past) the past tense version of the verb “to drive” is the correct tense to use.
