Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Philadelphia District Curriculum
The Philadelphia schools have state-of-the art science laboratories which are used to help students become scientists in their own worlds. This begins as the children learn broad areas such as life-cycles and then by middle school the topics are narrowed down to areas such as earthquakes, and energy. This prepares students to go more in-depth when they enter high school. At this stage, they can focus on areas like physical science, chemistry or biology.
Mathematics at the Philadelphia schools begins with basics such as learning to count to one hundred out loud and how to add and subtract up to 10. They progress through perimeters, money and time. In high school, they take these skills and learn algebra and other advanced mathematics so when they graduate they can solve the problems and communicate their methods for doing so. Mathematic literacy is a central part of the curriculum and students are expected to have communication abilities in math thought.

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: Preparing for the PSAT
Many high school students become stressed when they think of the tests they need to take in order to be accepted into college. The Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT) is one of these tests. To prepare for this test students just need to pay attention to their teachers in class because this test covers the knowledge that has been obtained in school. If a student has learned how to take notes completed their homework and has keep up on lessons, they will do fine on the test. If the student still feels like they need further preparation, there are books on how to prepare for the PSAT which help to review with the student the knowledge that they have already learned. The repetition that the book gives can be calming for some students. Just remember, before the test, take a deep breath and relax.
