Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Big Lake District Curriculum
Vocabulary acquisition and use is a central component of the elementary English language arts curriculum in Big Lake. Students learn how to choose the right words to create a desired effect when speaking and writing. Likewise, learners develop the ability to differentiate between words that sound the same, such as ‘two’ and ‘too.’ Exercises to expand kids’ vocabularies are undertaken as well. Students learn how to utilize a dictionary to find the meaning of unfamiliar words. Learners also become adept at utilizing the context in which the word appears to derive it’s meaning.
The health sciences curriculum in Big Lake seeks to help middle school students understand the role of heredity and environment on their personal health. Learners explore genetic factors that determine a variety of health issues, including the genetic propensity for the development of diseases like diabetes. Other lifestyle health issues are explored as well, including cardiovascular disease, obesity, and hypertension. Students also acquire an understanding of environmental influences on their health.

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: Benefits of STEM
STEM, or Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math programs, have become ever more popular in public schools in recent years. The development of STEM programs has led to many unique opportunities for cross-curricular learning. Such programs help students learn the content in context of its application. These programs have developed, in part, as a reaction to the needs of the modern workforce, which relies heavily on STEM-related skills. In fact, jobs in STEM fields have grown at a rate three times faster than other jobs over the last decade. In addition to helping students acquire necessary skills for success in today’s job market, STEM courses also get students up and active in the learning process. Experiential activities help reinforce classroom learning, ensuring that students retain more information and better understand the concepts they are studying.
