Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Philadelphia District Curriculum
The curriculum in English/Language Arts and Mathematics focuses upon preparing students to succeed as adults, whether their futures include college or career. Learning objectives emphasize the development of analytical thinking, as much as facts and methods. For example, children learn how to read from nonfiction works that challenge them in content areas. Instructors can choose from a wide variety of texts and series for reading and language arts, rather than a single district-wide program, as long as state requirements are followed for the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment.
Teachers and students can use many different resources, workshops, and webinars to enhance teaching and learning in innovative ways. For example, the Think Aloud Using Backward Design Model presents methods and lesson plans to engage students in English, Language Arts, and Math as early as Grade 3. Students learn how to solve problems by talking about what they are doing and asking questions about the material they are learning.

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: Tips on Reading for Content
Readers can use the think aloud strategy to ask questions to guide understanding and to summarize concepts they will need to remember later. Before reading a passage, mark every 2 to 3 sentences to help you remember to stop and wonder about what you are reading. These methods are supported by educational research, and tutors can help students learn new ways to solve problems.
