Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Woodlawn District Curriculum
The middle school math curriculum in Woodlawn serves as a survey of critical math skills and concepts. Statistics and probability comprise a significant portion of the curriculum. Students learn how to use random sampling procedures in order to make inferences about a particular population. As part of this study, learners acquire an understanding of validity and reliability, as well as measures of central tendency and measures of variability.
High school students learn about the impacts of technology as part of the technology education curriculum. The role and purpose of technology in various fields, including math, science, social studies, and fine arts is explored. Students explore various advances in technology and examine the speed with which technology is advancing as well. Real-life applications of technology are studied, including how technology is used to monitor dangerous environmental situations, such as tsunamis and landslides. The trade-offs of technology are analyzed as well. Students identify the ways in which technology makes their lives more convenient, and compare that with the ways in which technology negatively impacts their life and the lives of those around them.

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: Benefits of STEM Programs
STEM – studies in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math – has become a popular option in many school districts. This is due in large part to the emergence of STEM-related careers over the last few years and a need to encourage young people to enter those careers. STEM classrooms integrate each subject with the other, providing rich learning experiences in which children learn how to apply critical skills in a variety of contexts. The learning environment in STEM classrooms is highly active, with hands-on activities for children to explore and apply their knowledge. This higher level of engagement means that kids enjoy their studies more, remember what they study better, and have access to a wealth of information on potential careers. Many schools also integrate the arts into their STEM curriculum. By adding the creative aspect of artistic endeavors with the empirical aspect of STEM, students learn how to incorporate a wide skillset in order to solve problems and achieve goals.
