Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Moscow District Curriculum
For ELA, decoding skills begin in first grade. As students learn to decode, they build up their fluency, which is reading speed. Grammar skills are introduced in second grade. New third grade skills include the study of spelling patterns, the use of context clues to read new words and the reading of chapter books. Fourth through sixth graders learn the meaning of common Greek and Latin root words and apply that knowledge to decode and define complex words, read larger, more difficult literature, and textbooks on their own. By the seventh grade, students’ vocabulary has grown to include idioms and figurative language.
These skills are reviewed and strengthened in grades 8 through 12. They read a wider variety of texts which include classic literature, contemporary literature, periodicals, reference books, poetry and the Internet. Students progress through the 5 steps of writing: prewrite, write, edit, revise and publish, to produce a variety of technical and creative texts. They write and respond to a variety of texts, citing references where required.

Moscow District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Moscow School District expects students to enter each new grade having mastered the skills learned in the previous grade and having the ability to apply those skills to the skills being learned in subsequent years. In English Language Arts (ELA), the curriculum is based on 6 standards: Reading Process, Comprehension/Interpretation, Writing Process, Writing Applications, Writing Components and Communication. There are four standards that form the math curriculum: Number and Operation, Concepts and Principles of Measurement, Concepts and Language of Algebra and Functions, Concepts and Principles of Geometry, and Data Analysis, Probability, and Statistics.
We currently cover the following Moscow-area school district: Moscow School District.

SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points

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: Tips for Choosing a Tutor
Tutoring has been an educational option for hundreds of years. Presently, it often serves as a supplement for many children who struggle with academics in school. For many, it is the difference between passing and failing a course or grade level. For a service that is so critically important, choosing the right program is equally as important. A good tutoring company is one that has certified educators as tutors who can travel to their client when and where they are needed. It should have several kinds of programs to meet a wide variety of needs. It also should offer lessons that are motivating and stimulating. Most of all, the tutor needs to know how to relate to children, including those with special needs. A struggling student deserves the best. The right tutoring company will provide it.
