Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Union District Curriculum
The Common Core Math Standards help students to master concepts at a great depth. Students learn to dig deeply into each concept and use higher level thinking skills to explain their thought processes. They don’t simply learn the steps to solve a particular type of problem, but understand a variety of ways to find the answer through the practice of critical thinking skills.
In English Language Arts classes, students learn to read and write across the content areas. They acquire skills that help them synthesize information in the both fiction and nonfiction writing. Rather than telling students what they are going to read about, as was the practice past, students are challenged to jump in to the text and figure it out on their own. Students develop critical thinking skills such as analysis and interpretation by doing so. These skills offers better preparation for post-secondary studies and the workforce.

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: Finding a Balance
It can be difficult of families to juggle school, jobs, and the many other activities that consume our daily lives. Working hard to find balance in the physical, intellectual, and emotional part of the individual can increase a child’s success not only in school, but in all aspects of life. Help your child manage their day through balancing exercise, school work, chores, and leisure into their schedule. Moderate amounts of each of these things will build a healthy life style and teach time management skills that will prove valuable throughout a lifetime.
