Educating Our Parents: Understanding the White Oak District Curriculum
As students become more fluent learners, in all courses, they will be introduced to more specialized coursework that will show they have mastered certain standards. Besides the core subjects, students take classes in the areas of Music, Art, Library, and Physical Education.
One particular emphasis in the McKeesport Area School District is their special education programming. They are proud to have provided special education services for over 30 years. With this experience under their belt, they help students to achieve and succeed in the least restrictive environment possible. Those students who are able remain in regular classes with help from support personnel specifically hired for the job. McKeesport Area School District also handles students who didn’t speak English as their first language. Falling in the special needs category, these students are evaluated and tested to find out what help will be most effective for them. Gifted & Talented students are also encouraged and challenged through the special education programming in the district.

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.

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: How to Help Your Child Understand What They Read
Reading comprehension is an important aspect of learning in school. You can help your child learn reading comprehension. First, find out if they are struggling with this aspect. Your child’s teacher is the best resource in regards to this. When talking to your child’s teacher, find out how they are doing in reading comprehension and what you can do to encourage them in this area. One thing you can do is encourage reading at home. If your child is reading but has difficulty understanding or processing thing information, make sure that the book is at his or her reading level. Then, ask them to read it aloud to you. Sometimes reading books allowed can help your child to understand the content better. Ask your child questions about the book read. Ask questions about what they anticipate in the book before ever reading it. Ask little questions throughout the reading to see if they are picking up on what is going on as it is read. At the end, ask some summary questions like, “what was this book about?” Small steps like these can be taken to help your child better understand what they read.
