Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Wilkes-Barre District Curriculum
Each child in Grades K-6 takes part in the Reading for Success program, which is based on cooperative learning and working together in teams. The foundational skills are built upon in a wide range of literature courses in middle and high school, including College Prep and Advanced Placement courses in English, History, and World Languages. Writing is an essential component of Language Arts learning, and students are taught how to use a process for producing thoughtful pieces of written work.
The Math curriculum follows a similar progression, with core skills in Everyday Math in Grades 1 to 6 followed by more advanced courses in middle and high school. Students can choose College Prep courses where they follow a traditional academic track or one geared toward careers in business or technology. For example, students can take courses in computer science, probability and statistics, physics, biology, or chemistry no matter what their plans for the future.

They play to win, and share skills with their teammates, so that everyone benefits from this unusual arrangement. When the girls' soccer team folded, they were resourceful and came up with a plan to compete in the sport they loved.
- Grants - Students in area schools in the Wilkes-Barre Area School District have a wonderful opportunity to learn about life in the 1800s and 1900s, when trains ruled transportation and commerce in the United States. Two retired railroad workers have put together fast-paced slide presentations about those vanishing times. They tour small groups in order to give students a chance to ask questions about a fascinating part of American history.

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.
