Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Tamaqua District Curriculum
Beginning in elementary school, students explore a variety of academic content areas such as mathematics, reading, language arts, science, and social studies. In addition, students are expected to achieve key objectives in their physical education, library/media art, health, and music learning. Those subject areas along with world languages, technology, and business education carry through middle and high school and allow students to take on more advanced work.
In Science, students learn the process of scientific investigation and about core topics as well as technology, engineering, and environmental science. At the high school level, students dive deeper into scientific inquiry, studying physics, chemistry, and biology. Study of energy, waves, and matter are undertaken. Students additionally learn about forces and motion, as well as how the universe was formed. Advanced students also learn how to troubleshoot issues that arise with technology in an effort to make their use of devices a more smooth process.

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: Common Core
With the implementation of Common Core, many feel that teachers are now being told what to teach at each grade level in English Language Arts and mathematics. The major goal of each framework is to organize learning along key topics and provide an increasingly deep learning experience to students each year. Proponents and supporters of Common Core feel that is simply not the case. Core supporters state that the standards help to establish what students need to learn, but do not dictate or tell teachers how to teacher and allow teachers the flexibility to determine the best instructional method to deliver the objectives. Teachers are left to decide how to best help their students reach the standards and benchmarks. Common Core does provide teachers with consistent goals and expectations for their students, and it does provide the opportunity to collaborate with teachers across the country.
