Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Shaker Heights District Curriculum
The curriculum emphasizes English Language Arts and Math while expecting students to build on skills developed progressively through each grade. The early primary grades in English emphasize reading, spelling with attention to vocabulary acquisition, listening, speaking, writing, and determining and recalling simplistic themes and main ideas. Comparing themes and topics related to different cultures and perspectives is encouraged in senior grades. Once students enter high school, deeper reading and analysis of novels and short stories to produce coherent essays is expected.
Mathematics in the primary grades enables students to learn how to solve practical problems using addition and subtraction while understanding how to decipher the common relationship between problems. Senior grade math focuses on students being able to analyze and apply multiplication, division, fractions and measurement, and using shapes in relation to practical daily situations.

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: Karate- More Than Just a Hobby
Many parents decide to enroll their children in sports. However, karate seems to be high on the list for hobbies and activities that seem to nurture self-confidence, skill development, and self-esteem. Many parents are seeing the effects of bullying becoming prominent in schools all over the world. But karate teaches children to cope with self-defense in a non-violent way and to love themselves for their uniqueness and ability to be assertive, not aggressive. Karate helps children get into shape. It teaches politeness, self-respect and respect for others and allows for problem solving without resorting to threatening others. Karate allows one to respect others' personal boundaries and it teaches self-discipline--a skill that is becoming more important as part of character education.
