Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lancaster District Curriculum
In English Language Arts, students read and write about a variety to texts. They practice skills that are applicable in all courses of study, and will help them achieve success in college and careers. The writing portion of the curriculum requires that students learn to write using a process-oriented approach which includes brainstorming and planning, writing, editing and revising, and presenting their work. Research skills are also taught so that students know how to locate information and determine the validity and point of view in texts.
The Math curriculum challenges students to apply critical thinking skills as they seek solutions to real world problems. They delve deeply into each concept until they are able to master and explain all aspects of it. One goal is for students to be exposed to different problem solving methods in numeracy, algebraic operations, and geometry so that over the years they develop quantitative, logical and abstract reasoning skills.

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.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
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: Personal Responsibility
Teaching your child personal responsibility will prove to be a valuable lesson for him or her. This means, letting your child be responsible for completing homework and chores, or suffering consequences. Help your child with organization and time management skills, but require them to make age appropriate choices. For example, let them be responsible to recording and bringing home homework each day. If the child forgets, don’t go back to school or make excuses for them. Teach them to be honest about their mistake and allow them to suffer whatever consequence this involves. Prevention of this will not teach them responsibility, which is important for success in college and the career world.
