Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Bastrop District Curriculum
The Morehouse Parish School District has implemented the state mandated Common Core Curriculum as the standard for coursework in Mathematics and English and Language Arts. Common Core is an evidence based curriculum that is geared toward helping students be ready for college or the workforce. In English and Language Arts (ELA), students focus on learning the English language including reading, writing, speaking and listening. The program is progressive with students building on their skills year by year. Writing includes both narrative and expository writing with increasing levels of complexity.
In Mathematics, students learn a finite coherent set of math topics including arithmetic, statistics, algebra, geometry and measurement. These subjects are studied in depth so that students are fully math literate in the core subjects and can apply what they have learned to more difficult higher math subjects. An emphasis is placed on learning how and when to apply certain math rules and skills rather than just rote memorization learning.

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: Building Big Things
At Building Big a website dedicated to the Bridges, Domes, Skyscrapers, Dams and Tunnels is a great starting place for a budding engineer or architect. Building Big is a Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) TV show but the show’s website has great information on large structures, how they are built and who builds them. Kids can try their luck at building simulated structures using the interactive building challenges where kids get to choose the best tools for each type of structure. There are also interactive labs for understanding forces, materials, loads and shapes. For example with the Loads interactive lab kids can see what different types of external forces such as earthquakes, wind, vibration or soft soil could do to a structure. In addition there is a database of large structures all over the world that is searchable and kids can look for the big structures near where they live. This site is sure to get kids thinking about the fields of architecture and civil engineering.
