Educating Our Parents: Understanding the O'Hara Township District Curriculum
Students are also taught technology education to better prepare them for life beyond high school. Students also learn arts such as visual arts, music, theater and dance. Students learn about healthy living and staying active as well. These courses are also in line with the 21st century learning expectations that encompass the development of creativity, collaboration, innovation and other developmental assets that help students gain the personal attributes needed to attain their dreams.
High school students take electives which line up with their goals after high school. Students are offered and encouraged to take courses which will prepare them for secondary education, but there are also resources for students planning to pursue a vocation. Community service is a requirement of graduation and a senior project is also expected; these are facets of the educational program that allow students to apply their learning and abilities outside the classroom and be assessed through authentic means.

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: How to Help Your Child with Math
Whether you are strong or weak in the area of math, you can help and encourage your child to succeed in the area of math. First of all, know that the best help you can provide your child wrestling with math is the tools and motivation to solve problems on their own. So even if you know the answer, refrain from giving it to your child and instead help to guide them in the steps that they can take to find the answer on their own. If your child gets frustrated and can’t find the answer, let them take a break and try again. If they still are stuck, you may help them in a different way (remembering that there are many learning styles which can be accommodated) or you may talk to their teacher or have your child ask their teacher for more clarification. If your child consistently struggles in math, it may be worth finding a tutor who can help them as well.
