Educating Our Parents: Understanding the York District Curriculum
The York School District follows the Standards & Learning guidelines set out by the state Department of Education. These standards cover all academic programs, as well as courses in the arts, career learning, and advanced programs such as International Baccalaureate and Advanced Placement.

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: Commonly Confused Words
Students often mix up words that are commonly confused. They may use the words "herd" (i.e.: of cows) with "heard" (the past tense of the sense involving your ears). "Lead" and "led" is another set of homophones that may be mixed up; the latter is a type of metal, and the former is the past tense of the verb that means to guide the way. Another example of commonly confused words is "lightening" and "lightning." It is the second spelling that occurs during a thunderstorm; "lightening" means lessening the load of something. One more: Students may forget the meanings of "figuratively" and "literally," which are important terms to understand in literature. Figurative speech is not explicit and refers to metaphors, while literal speech is explicit and realistic. "Figuratively speaking, I am so hungry, I could eat an elephant!" "Sam literally laughed out loud when thinking about his favorite comedian's jokes."
