Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Wilkinsburg District Curriculum
Middle school students study similar subjects at a more advanced level, but also have foreign language courses offered as well as technology applications. Middle school students also have available to them several intervention programs. Study Island helps students who are not proficient in testing to come up to speed. Their Student Assistance Program assists students who may be struggling in school due to outside factors in the home or environment.
The high school focuses on the core topics as well, building on what students have learned in elementary and junior high. On top of those general topics, high school students are offered an even greater variety of courses including History, Woodshop, Consumer Science, Business, Home Economics, Dual Enrollment, Middle College (a program designed for students with academic potential who will excel better in college-like environment rather than high school), and Online Learning. These encourage students to think beyond high school to what will come next and equips them to be ready for whatever they might face academically.

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: Learning English as a Second Language
Is your child struggling with English? Yet he goes to a public school in the USA where all of his classes are in English and all of her friends speak English as well. Your local school should offer ESL (English as a Second Language) or ELL (English Language Learner) classes, but how can you encourage your child and help them even outside of their classrooms. First of all, you can learn English with them; practice with them, correct each other, watch movies and TV in English and try to summarize what happened in English. Let all of your easy listening music be in English when your child is home. Put sticky notes on objects all over the house defining what they are in English. For example, “Refrigerator” written on a Post-It and stuck to the fridge. Make English learning fun at home. Play games with your child such as “I spy” where you describe, in English, something you see and they have to guess what it is. With this balance of learning and fun, you can help your child progress faster and be more ready for the English classroom.
