Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ballwin District Curriculum
The Math curriculum is structured around a strong foundation of basic arithmetic skills, pattern recognition, and number theory. Addition, subtraction, division and multiplication form the basis for all other math subjects from early grades through high school. Mathematical literacy is promoted through regular practice of math concepts, and application to other subjects. In upper grades, a diverse set of math courses allows students to recognize the applications of calculus, statistics, and algebraic functions.
English Language Arts curricula strongly encourage and reinforce a deep understanding of reading and writing skills necessary to succeed in a diverse global society. Beginning in the early grades, and progressing on through middle and high school, students analyze and critique a broad range of non-fiction and fiction texts, while developing strong research and argumentative writing skills. Elective topics include mythology and Advanced Placement (AP) courses.

Ballwin District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Ballwin school districts foster academic success for each student, recognizing that differentiation in learning and teaching styles is a key to reaching every student’s greatest potential. District curricula are consistently revised to keep the material and the trainings on the cutting edge of pedagogical knowledge. Students take the first steps toward content mastery in early grades with basic material, then move up to more advanced topics.

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: Playing – It’s Educational!
When we acknowledge the skill of actors on a movie screen, or when we watch children at play, we are accessing a fundamental human trait: Play is fun, and engaging, and it helps us learn. When we engage in play, whether it is roleplaying in an English or history class, or playing a game to learn anatomy terms, we are immersing ourselves in the sheer joy of learning. We place internal competition on our goals to strive to do better—whether it is to reach a top score, or to perfectly execute a monologue, or whether it is interacting with classmates and colleagues to learn a new topic through a video production or a skit. This revamped, learning goal oriented version of play helps us stay engaged in the material we are learning, and gives us a sense of ownership over what we learn. Don’t discount the value of games and play in the learning process—the process truly is educational!
