Educating Our Parents: Understanding the McKeesport District Curriculum
The Math curriculum begins in elementary school, with hands-on and guided practice through Saxon Math. Programs in middle school such as Math Connects develop concepts that prepare students to take algebra, geometry, and other courses in high school. These programs offer connections between the basic math concepts and their practical applications in the real world. They help students build problem-solving skills that prepare them for geometry, algebra or statistics.
Similarly, the English/Language Arts curriculum develops basic skills in reading, writing, listening and speaking by increasingly complexity in reading and writing assignments over the years. Of particular emphasis is student writing, and the ability to use a process that includes pre-writing, writing, editing and revising, and publishing. Language based skills are also taught so that students are able to use Standard English and understand the craft of writing.

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.

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: Developing Leadership Skills
Is your child a leader, directing others toward a common goal, or are they more content to work behind the scenes toward that objective? Both types are needed in both the public and the private sector. Children who work together to develop projects learn important skills that they will use in the workplace. In and out of school, they will use core skills and concepts in literacy, math, and science throughout their academic and professional careers.
