Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Springfield District Curriculum
In their language arts curriculum, Springfield School District starts its elementary students with reading and comprehension, teaching them to ask questions and formulate ideas as to what is going on. In junior high, students are required to build on these skills. They learn about different types of writing such as persuasion, narrative, expository, and they must begin drawing conclusions from what is read. They also study writing structure and grammar. In high school they must do all of these things but take them to a new level where they will be required to research and apply information, and understand what is being stated.
Springfield School District also offers the other core and required classes according to state regulations. In the math offerings, students are given the tools they need, step by step, to be well equipped for what may lie ahead in this technological age. Starting from elementary grades and proceeding through high school, math courses build on each other until high school where many courses are offered to meet the needs and goals of individuals.

Springfield District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Springfield School District takes very seriously its responsibility to provide quality education for its students. With that in mind, they adhere to the guidelines set out by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. One area of specific focus to this school is in their art curriculum. They place emphasis on visual arts from kindergarten all the way through 12th grade. They teach students to look at, evaluate, respond to, and create art. By the time they reach high school, students have studied many aspects of art and are ready to specialize as well as study other artists in a new way.

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: Technology in the Classroom
While it may be nice to remember the “good ol’ days” of pencil on paper and chalk scratching chalkboard, it is undeniable that recent advancements in technology have completely transformed the classroom. From using the computer to research and write quality research papers, to the utilization of electronic testing equipment and smart boards, our k-12 students are inundated with technology. The great thing about it is that these technologies can open doors that were never before opened, especially for students who need a little extra help on a topic, or for those that need a little extra challenge. Because of the nature of computers in technology, with time in the computer lab, teachers can focus on teaching students who need extra help while students who understand the material can dig deeper. This coupled with the fact that class planning, grading, and other tasks can be completed faster with current technology, these advantages score high when considering advanced technology in schools.
