Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Woodlyn District Curriculum
The Ridley School District takes reading, writing and listening skills seriously. Utilizing a workshop model for teaching their students these skills, students in Kindergarten through eighth grade have many hands on learning experiences in the areas of reading, writing and listening. From Read Aloud activities to Independent Reading, from Mini-lessons to Sharing Times where students listen to and discuss what they have done and learned with their classmates, students are able to process and apply these foundational skills.
Students at the high school level are offered Honors, College Prep, AP Level and General Academic courses in many core subjects including science. Here students have the opportunity to prepare for college or career through quality, rigorous courses designed to help them succeed. High school students are also highly encouraged to take elective courses that will help them along their career or vocational goals whether that be in scientific fields, technology fields, the arts, or others.
Contact our Academic Directors Today at 1-877-545-7737 to Discuss your Child's Strengths and Areas for Improvement.

Woodlyn District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
From Social Studies to Math to Language Arts, Science and others, Ridley School District seeks to provide a solid, grounded education for each of its students. In social studies, kindergarten students start by learning about “Me and My World.” They progress, as they advance in grade level, through topics on school, family, community, Regions of the US, US and Ancient History, European History, and finally Economics, Government, and related topics. This deepening of awareness of the concepts that make the world work prepares students for advanced study and a career of their choosing.
We currently cover the following Woodlyn-area school district: Ridley School 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.
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: How to Decide on a Career or Vocation
Many students struggle to decide on a career or vocational goal, but the pressure mounts as high school students are encouraged to take courses that prepare them for that goal. So what can you, the high school student, do? First, know that you can change your mind later on. The key is to keep your options open in high school. If you think you may want to go to college, take courses that will prepare you for that, even if you end up deciding not to. Taking College Prep English, as opposed to General English, is an example. Take the science and language courses that will keep your options open. If your school offers a diploma designed to prepare you for college, shoot for those requirements instead of settling for something easier. It may be a bit more work, but at least you have many more options than if you hadn’t done that. After that, with your elective courses, take the classes that most interest you. Electives most likely won’t make or break you, so have fun with them, remembering to keep your options open.
