This competition is an interactive simulation of the stock market where high school students get a first-hand experience with trading as they buy and sell stocks from a list of 26 fictitious companies. During the competition, all 410 of the students competing in the challenge used their skills in team-building, communications, math and critical-thinking while they built their portfolio during the two-minute live simulation. The winning team turned $500,000 into $1.8 million to win the Junior Achievement Student Stock Market Challenge. Congratulations to the business students at Desert Vista High School.
- Tempe Students Compete in Math Challenge - Forty math students from the Tempe Elementary School District, who are in the program called PACE, Promoting Actualization through Creativity and Excellence, recently competed in a math challenge with the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. During a videoconference, math students from four Tempe schools: Broadmoor, Curry, Frank and Nevitt, were divided into two teams and placed into positions just like on a baseball team. The players were asked questions that tested their math skills, including such questions as baseball statistics and batting averages. When the players came up to bat, they had the option to answer a question that could result in a single, double, triple, or home run, with each question ranging in difficulty. At the end of the game, the team with the highest score was the winner. In the end all of the students who participated in the challenge had the opportunity to show off their math skills, to work together, and learn how math works in the real world.

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 Benefits of Early Detection of Learning Disabilities
It is important that if a parent is concerned about their child's progress, or if a teacher in school, camp or after-school activity notices something out of the ordinary that they speak up. Oftentimes, when a child is having difficulty with a task at school, they get easily frustrated. Teachers may begin to notice behavior problems from that child in his effort to avoid doing the work that frustrates him. Studies have shown that many young children in the early pre-school years, who may have a delay in language development, fine and gross motor abilities or attention, very often are diagnosed with a learning disability later on in school. Detecting the problem early is essential to the child's success. Parents should not wait for negative behaviors to show, or for that child to fail. It is important to detect any issues, have the child assessed or obtain a diagnosis and begin an appropriate program or intervention.
