Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Plum District Curriculum
Plum Borough School District also focuses on core requirements all through the class grades. In their Math courses they focus not only on the quantity of information learned, but also on the depth of information learned. This allows students to focus and apply what is being learned instead of jumping from topic to topic as test prep classes can tend to do. The focus for their math program includes fulfilling state requirements and passing PSSA and Keystone exams. For later grades, AP and college credit courses are offered for students.
In their Physical Education courses, Plum Borough School District focuses not only on sporting activities but on lifetime physical education skills such as incorporating physical activity into daily activities as well as weight lifting and classes such as yoga and Pilates. In their health program, they talk through physical, mental, and emotional health, teaching students how to live safely, how to cope with tough situations and stress, and how to choose positive behaviors.

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: Why Study Public Speaking?
Many schools in either high school and/or college require students to take speech class. It is often a dreaded topic that most students would likely never take if it wasn’t required. So why is it a valuable requirement? Speech classes teach lessons that no other class can teach in quite the same way. Instead of telling a student “ok, it’s time for you to write a 30 minute speech” without any teaching at all, speech class provides a safe environment for students to learn and practice the art of speaking. This is not only useful for those who have careers in which they will need to run board meetings. This is valuable for anyone who will ever be in an interview or anyone who will need to get the attention of a person or group of people that they may or may not be comfortable with. Speech class equips students with the tools to be ready to communicate effectively in many situations both in large groups and small. For these reasons and many more, speech class is considered beneficial for students.
