Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Pleasant Hills District Curriculum
One of the things important to the West Jefferson Hills School District is that all students are cared for and learn, regardless of whether they have special learning needs or not. With this in mind, they provide special education services as well as Gifted programs for students who need an extra challenge. They also provide help and classes for students who do not speak English as their first language.
High school students at WJHSD have four years to work on their diploma and show their school that they are ready to graduate. Students study careers they might be interested in, and once they select one, they are encouraged to pursue it even in high school. The career pursuits range in student interests from technology to the arts, and also provide many opportunities for overlapping interests. Students, in this way, are able to graduate with a good idea of what they will need to do, both academically and personally, to further approach their goals in years to come.

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: How to Excel in Math
Many students struggle in math because it is often presented as a bunch of formulas or processes which must be memorized. Making sense out of these formulas can be difficult and time consuming, so sometimes students are tempted to simply memorize them and move on, never learning the underlying concept which will prove important in upcoming lessons. Excelling in math can be difficult, but there are a few things that you, as a student, can do to make this less of a pipe’s dream and more of a reality. First of all, take the time to understand what you are learning. If you need a proof or explanation, ask for it. If your teacher doesn’t know, find someone who does or Google it. A tutor may be able to help in this aspect as well. Also, while math homework can be boring at times, take the time to do the problems assigned and, if you have time, a few more. Application problems, such as word problems, can also be of great benefit in truly knowing if you understand a concept.
