Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Pickerington District Curriculum
A central part of the elementary English language arts curriculum is reading literature. Students in grades K-5 work on acquiring a basic understanding of the craft and structure of literature, as well as key ideas and details. To develop these skills, students take part in directed learning in which they identify key components of a text, retell stories using key ideas, and describe the characters.
The social studies curriculum in Pickerington includes an in-depth study of modern world history. Students acquire the historical thinking skills required to evaluate information critically. Learners use primary and secondary sources to paint a picture of past events and analyze those sources for bias. These sources are used to examine world events from the 1600s to the present, culminating in a study of the globalization that has taken place since the 1990s. An analysis of the end of Communism is undertaken, including how the breakup of the U.S.S.R. led to democratic revolutions throughout eastern Europe.

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: The Value of Technology in Education
In today’s modern world, incorporating technology in the classroom is vital for children to develop an understanding of how to harness the power of technology for academic and work-related uses. Today’s students were born in a world in which mobile phones and the Internet are the norm. Utilizing these technologies in the classroom allows children to speak their own language. Delivering image-rich, succinct packages of information via technology allows kids to retain more information as well. With a plethora of online learning tools, videos, and demonstrations, technology has the ability to bring learning to life. Using technology also prepares children for the world of work. Teachers can work as facilitators who give students tasks to complete on their own, much like what occurs in the workplace.
