Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Latrobe District Curriculum
The curriculum in reading/literacy/language arts is developmental in nature, from the earliest kindergarten classes to a full program in high school that includes literature and composition. Students are expected to be able to develop skills in writing and speaking throughout their school years. Similarly, the program in mathematics follows specific guidelines that promote results with numerous assessments. Students use the Go Math! Program in elementary school which develops and tests toward Common Core standards in the number system, computation, geometry, and probability.
The district offers many choices for students as they begin to look ahead toward their post-secondary learning and career goals. For example, students in the Allied Health Careers program in high school take a full sequence of courses, as well as internships with Latrobe area medical facilities, in order to prepare for college and university programs in medicine. Students are equipped with skills and an understanding of expectations that provides the necessary basis for higher level work.

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 Public Speaking?
Many people list public speaking as their main fear, worse than snakes, heights, or even death. However, public speaking is an important skill that students can develop while they are still in school. It helps focus on main ideas, develop engaging supporting examples, and communicate them with others. In addition, the skills learned in public speaking are an advantage during interviews and while giving presentations in the workplace. It is a skill that if learned early, can grow into a major advantage for a person and they will always appreciate the comfort they have built for public speaking.
