Educating Our Parents: Understanding the University Park District Curriculum
Reading is part of the Language Arts department at University Park Schools. When they begin to read students read picture books either as a teacher reads out-loud, in a small group or by themselves. The books become simple chapter books or books that are used to demonstrate a specific trait. They use books like “Tuck Everlasting” to help students understand the importance of setting and the author’s voice. By the time they graduate, students will have read works by Shakespeare to understand a specific time in literary history.
University Park Schools begin the study of biology as the grade school level. Students begin by looking at the exterior of a plant as they learn the different parts. They then go on to look at a closer viewpoint to see how the root grows into smaller sections and even have hairs that help it stay anchored. When they study biology at the high school level, they find out about the cells that are within each of these structures and their roles in keeping the plant alive.

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: School Counselors
School counselors help parents and students in many different ways. The difficulty is when to ask these busy people for help or advice. If there is a problem that a child faces at school, call the counselor to talk with them privately. When making the appointment make sure that the counselor knows how important the issue is, so they can make sure to prioritize all of the issues they need to deal with in a day. Also, make sure that big moves are not made until these professionals and parents have a meeting. Do not automatically move a child to a different school due to a bullying problem or other issue without seeing what other options are available from the counselor. If after meeting with them, the steps to resolve the issues are not laid out, then see about talking with the administration. This profession is often a middle person, which causes the limitations they face. They are usually caring people which only want what is best for all parties involved in an issue.
