Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Gonzales District Curriculum
The Ascension Parish School District utilizes the state mandated Common Core State Standards for setting school curriculum. Common Core is not a curriculum but a set of expectations for students particularly in the areas of Mathematics and English and Language Arts (ELA). In Mathematics, students learn core foundational math subjects at a deep level of understanding including arithmetic, algebra, statistics, geometry, measurement and proportional reasoning. Students are expected to gain the knowledge on how to apply what they have learned to higher math and to real life scenarios.
In ELA, students learn the English language through learning to read, write, speak and listen in the development of strong verbal and written communication skills. Students read both informational text and literature as reading material so that they are prepared for the types of reading that may be required in college or as private citizens.

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: Learn about the Civil War
The Civil War continues to teach us about what can happen when divisiveness in a country reaches great levels. Students can gain a good understanding of America’s Civil War at the Civil War Home Page dedicated to the participants of the war from both sides. The site which is recommended for students by the American Library Association contains links to a variety of information on the war including original documents such as letters and diaries, photos, official records of individual battles written by the commanding generals of both armies, and a variety of maps of battles. The most visited link on the site is to a Civil War Photo Gallery which contains over 1200 images of cities, individuals including Abraham Lincoln and other notable people, civilians, flags, hospitals, and photos of life in the military and on the battle field. Not for young children but a great resource for high school students as they study the War Between the States.
