Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Bossier City District Curriculum
Students in Bossier Parish Schools are taught to use mathematics in real-world situations. Numeracy, geometry, algebra, measurement, probability and statistics are taught at each grade level. As students increase in skill and understanding, the focus moves from computation to problem-solving strategies with emphasis on real world applications. Advanced math skills are expected at the secondary levels in order for students to be college and career-ready by graduation.
Reading, writing to inform, and creative writing are skills students are taught to practice throughout their educational experience. Understanding and decoding meaning from a variety of text in book, magazines, digital and graphic forms are skills that students will need both in school and in the world of work. As student grow and learn, writing also plays a part in literacy classes as well as other core classes such as Social Studies and Math. Being about learning and informing, writing is a critical skill that students should master by high school.

Bossier City District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Bossier Parish School Board follows the standards-based Common Core Curriculum. The curriculum design is such that students focus on key areas of learning within each subject, gaining a distinct depth of knowledge each year. This is done to bring about higher order thinking and analysis skills which students will need for post-secondary work and learning. Another aim of the curriculum is that students make connections between subjects, and to that end, the district offers electives to engage excitement and foster connections.
We currently cover the following Bossier City-area school district: Bossier Parish School Board.

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: Choosing an Extracurricular Activity
Art, music, sports and other extracurricular activities help children to become better students, learn how to cooperate and work as a team member, and provide a “well-rounded” education. Sometimes families wonder, “How many of these activities should my child join?” Often the answer is found by considering the areas in which your child is interested. Students, who shy away from one activity, may actually have a talent to develop in another area. These opportunities can promote self-confidence and a sense of responsibility. However, one rule of thumb parents may want to consider is “Can my children participate in these activities and earn good grades without showing signs of stress or anxiety?” Warning signs for anxiety may include an overall sense of sadness, a drop in grades or school attendance, and being sick more frequently. Attending extracurricular events with children, having open communication with your child and watching school progress can be determining factors in which sports or activities your child can handle without undue pressure or stress. As courses become more rigorous, schedule adjustments may be necessary.
