Educating Our Parents: Understanding the University City District Curriculum
The elementary Math curriculum is structured around the core concepts of addition, subtraction, division, multiplication, decimals and fractions. Basic number pattern recognition is reinforced, and math literacy is encouraged through basic arithmetic understanding. Practice of these concepts, as well as application to real world scenarios, lends relevance to mathematics in everyday life. In middle and high school grades, students are introduced to more advanced topics, such as algebraic functions, geometry, and calculus.
Communication Arts, including English Language Arts, are emphasized from an early age at University City. The curriculum focuses on developing strong reading and writing skills from an early age. From early grades on through middle and high school, students learn to evaluate and analyze a broad range of texts, from fiction to nonfiction and periodicals. Additional elective topics include journalism, mythology and Advanced Placement (AP) courses.

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: Disease Transmission – Breaking the Chain
As a health-conscious society, we are always being told how to take steps to increase and promote our overall health. There are six so-called links to the chain of infection. The first is an infectious agent—any disease-causing microorganism, also known as a pathogen. The second link is the reservoir host—the organism in which infectious microbes live. Third is the portal of exit—for example, sneezing or touching infected surfaces with broken skin. Fourth is a route of transmission—the way in which a pathogen gets from a reservoir host to a new host. Examples include airborne disease, insects, and touch. Fifth is the portal of entry—the way in which a pathogen enters a new host. Finally, if all these links have conspired together, the sixth link is a susceptible host, the organism that accepts the pathogen and perhaps cannot fight it off. Self-protection and appropriate treatment are really important factors when considering your overall health, and breaking the chain of disease transmission.
