Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lancaster District Curriculum
Schools only make progress towards meeting rigorous state standards when the needs of individual students are met. In Reading/Language Arts, students make gains in reading comprehension overall when students are directly instructed in finding main ideas in the passages they read, as well as being able to identify the best summary of passage content. Writing is also a significant portion of the Language Arts curriculum and students develop skills enabling them to write on complex topics based on their own research.
Enrichment areas such as Music, Art, and World Languages are seen as ways to engage a diverse student body, and meet the needs of individual children while they are attending school from pre-school through high school. The qualities students learn from participation enhance their education and progress through the standard school subjects. For example, an individual student who competes in sports learns essential skills that will carry over into other classes.

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: Student Leaders Are Made, Not Born
Not all students are born leaders, but many can be taught to lead. Student leaders focus on doing their best to make their community a better place. They recognize weak areas that need improvement as well as strengths, and aim for the goal. In addition, student leaders who get recognized for improvements they work toward, showed that they kept working to improve and didn't give up in the face of a huge goal. Tutors and mentors can help students learn the skills they need to succeed, so they can become leaders also.
