Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Williamsport District Curriculum
From the earliest grades in primary school, students are expected to develop their skills through reading basal and other appropriate texts, and progress is measured through close questioning and other activities. For example, students learning how to find the main ideas of a story will first read it with their teacher in concert, then independently. Students will then answer questions to test their comprehension by a variety of activities, including asking one another about the text.
Like the Literacy/Language Arts program, the Mathematics program focuses upon careful attention to scope and sequence in areas like algebra or geometry. Students learn a variety of different methods to use as tools when performing basic math operations. For example, students learning long division may use both the traditional method and the estimation method to arrive at the same answer. In high school, students may select from courses in algebra, geometry, probability and statistics, computer science, and applied math.

The Art Club members have produced many murals around Williamsport, and every one of them is a beautiful addition to the community.
- Community Outreach from Culinary Arts Students - Williamsport Area School District students in the high school Life Skills program prepared, served, and cleaned up after a special luncheon last Thanksgiving.

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: The Sky Is Not the Limit
Does your student dream of exploring space or to soar beyond the stars in a fantastic ship? Even rocket scientists have to start somewhere by mastering the skills of reading, math, social studies and science. Students can find the main ideas in biographies about astronauts, calculate problems to build a rocket, plan a community to live on the Moon, or learn about the Milky Way Galaxy. The best explorations start in school, to go boldly in an uncharted universe.
