Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Presque Isle District Curriculum
A basic foundation of literacy skills is laid in kindergarten where students learn letters and their sounds. By the time students enter first grade they will be able to write their names. In first grade teachers will help students to build upon their skills and to begin the teaching of fundamental reading and comprehension skills. By the time students reach high school skills are developed to the point that students read and analyze text in fiction and nonfiction and they write several types of papers, such as informative and persuasive writing.
As with Language Arts/Literature, students receive the foundation for math skills in kindergarten. Students learn to recognize and write numbers, as well as how to add and subtract numbers using objects, which gives students their basic algebra skills. Students learn basic geometry skills by grouping blocks of different shapes, like rectangles, triangles and circles, into the right groups. Along with math, the STEM program gives students skills in science, technology and engineering.

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: The Importance of Open Communication
Parents often wonder how they can help their schools and teachers provide their children with a good education. Teachers and schools need the help of parents so that they can provide the best possible education for students. You can help by talking to teachers and administrators to find out where they are lacking. Communication is the key to staying involved with your child's education. If you communicate with your child's teacher on a frequent basis and show your child that you are invested in his education. By taking these actions you will not only help your child, but you will also help his teacher and the school. When teachers ask for help be responsive and give whatever help you possibly can. You can volunteer to help individual students or read to the class. Maybe you can go as a chaperone on a field trip. A trip to the zoo with kindergarteners is a blast. Get busy, stay involved, keep communication open, and your child and school will succeed.
