Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Allen District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum at Allen schools includes the various aspects of reading. The children learn how to read to others by taking part in shared or guided reading. They also increase their reading skills by listening to read alouds and by participating in independent reading time both in and outside of class. By taking part in each of these aspects of reading, these students can graduate with high levels of reading skills and comprehension tools.
Social studies is addressed by using an approach that includes helping students to comprehend the curriculum through lessons that are presented so that no matter how students learn they have greater success in succeeding. Through this multiple intelligences approach students listen, view, complete hands-on activities and complete lessons through a multitude of media. This curriculum allows students to interact with each other so that they may increase their learning.

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: Asperger’s Syndrome Symptoms
When it comes to diagnosing Asperger’s Syndrome, two children can present with different specifics. However, there are some common symptoms that should be looked for to help diagnose it early. Most children with this syndrome have difficulties with pretend play. Instead, they may quote, word-for-word, from books, movies or television shows. To spot this, look at how the child plays at home, however they play at home is how they play with others. Listen to how the child talks. They usually have one-sided conversations which are led by the child and it will end suddenly. Plus they can easily repeat things which help them appear to be very intelligent. Other things to look for are if they have melt-downs when others do not follow rules and to see if they make eye contact when they are talking. Just because a child has these symptoms, parents should not make the mistake of diagnosing them. Instead use these signs as a launching point with school psychologists, who can let the parent know what steps can then be taken to accurately diagnose.
