Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Baker District Curriculum
In English and Language Arts, students learn to read, write, listen and speak in correct English. Students use reading material that includes both informational text and literature so that they are exposed to the type of reading they may encounter on the job. In writing students are encouraged to write creative assignments using examples from their own lives and to write research reports using research skills including the ability to read for evidence. English literacy standards are applied across all academic courses.
In Mathematics, students start learning the basics of computation, algebra, geometry, statistics, and measurement and continue through a progressively more difficult curriculum with students building on the skills they have learned. An emphasis is placed on persistence in solving math problems including knowing when to apply specific math tools and to apply math knowledge to solve new problems.

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: Leonardo Da Vinci Explored
Leonardo Da Vinci continues to be an historical figure that fascinates and amazes. At the Museum of Science in Boston website, students, teachers and parents can find a resource on Da Vinci that provides information on Da Vinci’s life, his paintings, his inventions, and his perspective in life. There is a wealth of information including an interesting look at Da Vinci’s use of mirror writing which he used as type of shorthand writing from right to left. It is theorized that he used this form of writing to keep his ideas and inventions from scrutiny by the Roman Catholic Church of the time and also because as a left-handed writer it was less messy. One can also find theories on why as a celebrated painter he only completed a few art works, or why as a pacifist he spend time trying to invent deadly weapons. The Museum’s website on Da Vinci provides a learning experience and a stepping off place for discussion and research.
