Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Baton Rouge District Curriculum
As part of the Common Core Standards for English, students are taught to love learning by reading, writing, listening, and speaking. The ability to understand, analyze and evaluate text is the focus from elementary school through high school. Students learn ways to critically interpret texts and research topics of interest. Literacy is integrated with Social Studies and Science as students learn to interpret visual information in charts and graphs, as well as print and digital texts.
Mathematics in the early grades concentrates on number, operations, geometry and measurement. Students are then led to learn by discovery as they move on toward working with data, algebra, probability and statistics. Using real-world applications educates students to think creatively, solve problems and justify solutions. By the end of high school, the goal is to graduate students who are mathematically literate, able to creatively solve problems, and are experienced team members.

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.

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: Help Your Child Do Well in School
Fuel up your child with a healthy breakfast before school! Children can think better, which means higher grades in Math and Reading, when they eat breakfast. Blood sugar can drop significantly by mid-morning when students do not eat before leaving home in the morning. Although it is a busy time, eating breakfast is one way to help your child have a successful day! Setting the table the night before, leaving out necessary cereal boxes or fruit, can help busy families squeeze in a good breakfast as they prepare for the day. Make sure your child’s “fuel tank” is full rather than “empty” as they head out of the door for a day of learning!
