New Tutoring Curriculum And Technology Platform Enable College-Bound Students To Excel In Science, Technology, Engineering And Math (STEM)

OLYMPIA, Wash., Dec. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- SchoolTutoring Academy has initiated a pilot program of a new academic learning plan, curriculum, and technology platform geared at high school students focused on entering college programs in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) disciplines. This comprehensive academic platform will provide students with access to curated, high-quality academic materials, as well as, specially-trained tutors familiar with STEM-specific academic needs.

As the need for highly-skilled science and technology workers grows in North America, SchoolTutoring Academy has made a strategic decision to increase their focus on tutoring programs that will enable students to successfully obtain admission to four-year STEM college programs. Providing high school students with these tools gives them exposure to these subjects and better prepares them for the rigors of college STEM-related courses. Early, positive interactions with science and technology topics can help steer students towards career paths in these fields.

In addition to SchoolTutoring Academy's core K-12 tutoring programs, students seeking admission to science, math and engineering programs at the community college and university level are provided with the option of utilizing this instructor-led preparation curriculum. This academic content is used to supplement existing school work as well as foundational tutoring courses (i.e. Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Biology, Physics, etc..). "The educational landscape has never seen such rapid changes in both the needs of graduating high school students, as well as, the tools available to equip them," reports Nathan Arora, Vice President of Educators Group, SchoolTutoring's parent company.

The response from parents and early-adopters has been very positive. Students have benefited from more targeted instruction that is tailored to their long-term goals. In addition, SchoolTutoring Academy's technology tools help students track their academic progress, receive text message reminders of upcoming tutoring sessions, and communicate directly with their instructors asynchronously through a secure message center linked to their email account. These technology features enable busy students to work one-on-one with their specially-trained, STEM-program tutor. As Mr. Arora explains, "We surveyed parents and identified key pain points that prevented busy parents from seeking prep services and identified targeted solutions to address them."
