Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Reading District Curriculum
Reading’s social studies curriculum includes an in-depth examination of world geography. Students explore the various ways in which people interact with their environment and the ways in which the environment impacts human activity. The concept of movement is explored, with students identifying the various factors that induce people to move, including personal, economic, and environmental reasons. Different regions around the world are examined, with students identifying various characteristics that make up different regions, such as the steel belt and the sun belt.
The world languages curriculum helps students develop the knowledge and skills they need to communicate fluently in a language other than English. In elementary school, students learn basic words, phrases, and language rules in order to develop a strong foundation for language acquisition. Children take part in simple conversations with one another, read basic texts, and present information to their classmates. In middle school, students acquire more advanced skills that allow for improved flow of speech, faster reading, and better listening skills that allow them to more accurately decipher a second language.

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: Advantages of E-Textbooks
Electronic textbooks have become more and more popular in recent years, and with good reason. E-textbooks, although perhaps more expensive up-front, represent a savings over traditional textbooks in the long-term. Rather than investing in traditional books and having to replace those that are lost or damaged, schools can instead purchase licenses for e-textbooks that last a student the entire school year. These licenses often come with a host of online support materials that expand a student’s ability to learn the subject matter. Being able to easily access their textbook at school and at home means that students are afforded more opportunities for learning. Easily accessed on tablets, laptops, and even cell phones, students can do their homework from anywhere, so long as they have an Internet connection. E-textbooks also provide the advantage of being much easier to carry around. Rather than having a backpack full of heavy books, a student needs only a tablet or laptop in order to access their online books.
