Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Youngstown District Curriculum
At all grade levels, the Youngstown City School District has four areas of emphasis in its English curriculum: reading (including literature and informational text), writing, speaking and listening, and language (grammar). While educators are encouraged to teach kindergartners by reading aloud, role playing, and encouraging story-telling, they are instructed to teach high school students by reading aloud plays and poetry, giving narrative and persuasive essay writing assignments, and drilling students on grammar.
The goal of the Math curriculum is to produce students who can use abstract reasoning to get to the roots of a problem, model problems, use symbols, demonstrate precision, and identify structures and patterns. Students work towards these skills through different activities, depending on grade level. For example, kindergarten students may concentrate on a calendar as a tool for teaching mathematics. Middle and high school students have a more structured approach to learning math.

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: Art and Music in Schools
When schools face budget problems, art and music programs are often the first to go. This is hardly surprising, since it is difficult to measure the success of these programs with standardized testing. Nevertheless, they are an important part of any school’s curriculum. Education is not simply about mastering skills; it is about creating well-rounded individuals, and an appreciation of art and music is a necessary part of this. Art and music classes expose the students to a new world of self-expression. This is especially crucial for students who may not be exposed to this in their homes. For these students, school may be the only place where they can uncover a hidden talent or passion for the arts.
