Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Johnston District Curriculum
The standards expect a graduate to be literate. Literacy, according to the standards, is defined as the ability to understand complex academic texts, significant content knowledge across a wide range of genres, ability to communicate effectively by various means, to use and understand technology and media, and to understand and appreciate other cultures and perspectives.
In relation to Mathematics, the standards emphasize the ability to comprehend problems, use abstract and quantitative reasoning, develop arguments and understand the arguments of others, apply mathematical principles to everyday life, and use available tools to accomplish these purposes. By grade eight, students should be able to work with radicals and integer exponents, functions, basic geometry, and statistics and probability. At graduation, the mathematics student should be well-rounded, equipped with understanding of both rational and irrational numbers, vector and matrix quantities, and the complex number system.

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: Absent in Body, but Not in Spirit
It is best to be present each school-day. However, if an absence is unavoidable, there are things you can do to minimize the disruption. If you know ahead of time that you will miss a day of school, you can let your teachers know and ask what will be covered in class. You may have time to do a reading or complete a homework assignment during your absence. If your absence was unforeseen, it is your responsibility to consult with your teachers as soon as you return to find out what you missed. If you missed a substantial amount of school, you may want to ask your teachers to work out a schedule so that you can gradually make up the assignments before the end of the school year. Your classmates can also be helpful. Choose a diligent, responsible friend with neat handwriting who will let you copy notes from class or telephone you with important class announcements and assignment.
