Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Pittsfield Township District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum focuses on the Balanced Literacy approach by combining resources and using a “Me, We, You” methodology. The teacher demonstrates skills during the Read Aloud, gives guided practice during Shared Reading, and supervises during Reader’s Workshop. This scaffolds the expectations ensuring all students get the necessary instruction. Everyday Mathematics is used as the text and builds on standards so that students are thoroughly exposed to the material.
The school districts have many programs in place in the upper grades to help students as well. One of these is the READ180 program that works with students who are below grade level in reading. Students meet daily with a READ180 teacher for smaller group instruction that incorporates a lot of technology. Other opportunities for older students include virtual learning, sports, and academically competitive teams.

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 Role of an Inclusion Teacher
The title of Inclusion Teacher has only been around for about the past decade since radical changes were made in Special Education. An Inclusion Teacher is a general education teacher whose classroom is comprised of both general education and Special Education students. These professionals collaborate with several different colleagues including the Special Education teacher, Special Education administrator, and other specialists. The Inclusion Teacher, along with these colleagues, analyzes lesson plans and assignments in order to determine if any modifications should be made to help the students. Modifications can range from an easier reading selection to larger print. The Inclusion Teacher then presents the lesson or assignment to the class. In some cases, the Inclusion and Special Education teachers co-teach by taking turns presenting. This collaboration is essential to the success of all the students in the classroom.
