Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Alice District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum at Alice Schools includes the study of grammar. Students begin by listening to stories which allows them to hear the way that words go together to help with comprehension. Students then begin to learn about subjects, predicates, nouns, verbs and the other parts of speech. Soon they learn how to place each of these words, either in oral or written forms. From there, they learn how to organize and outline ideas and create structure within longer written assignments.
The schools begin teaching the mathematics curriculum from the first days. This includes teaching students about money. First, students begin to recognize coins by their appearance and learn how much each coin is worth. They then learn how to combine the coins to come up with a total and they learn how to make change. Students are given story problems and simulations where they are able to see how to apply this knowledge in their lives. These skills will aid the students after they finish their education.

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: Sixth-Grade Social Studies
In sixth-grade students begin to go more in-depth in the knowledge and concepts they have built up to this time. The standards of learning vary from state-to-state, but overall, students learn the same general knowledge in sixth-grade. In this grade students learn about Ancient Civilizations, such as Mesopotamia and Samaria. They also learn the importance of linking, sequencing and interpreting facts as they research topics for projects. Along with the research skills, students also learn how to study. This may require the use of a classroom planner. To help a students with their assignments, parents need to ask to view this planner once in a while to make sure that it is being kept up-to-date and that the students learns how to use one properly. With this knowledge parents and students can have a successful year in Social Studies in the sixth-grade.
