Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Brandon District Curriculum
Language Arts begins in kindergarten as the children learn how letters blend together along with beginning and ending sounds within a word. After a few years these same students keep learning as they begin to create thesis statements and learn how to push their thinking to help make their works stronger. When the students graduate they will have learned how to use prepositions, relative clauses, resources, and different phrases.
Mathematics starts with learning basics such as numbers and the concepts of half, whole, in addition to greater than, less than and equal to. Students build on this knowledge as they learn measurements, including the metric system in fourth grade and they learn about grafts, prime and composite numbers. As they continue toward graduation, they will face more challenging concepts in the areas of geometry, algebra, trigonometry, statistics, and calculus.

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: Preparing for Exams
As examination time creeps closer some students become frantic that they may make silly mistakes or they will freeze. If they are prepared for the day, they need not worry about either of these. Begin studying as early as possible, even if it is from the first day of school. This will make the information so familiar to the student that it will be easily retrievable when called for in an exam. If a teacher hands out a study guide, it should be used as a tool to succeed. The teacher knows what material will be on the exam, so the study guide will be a reflection of this. The night before the exam, get eight hours of sleep, then eat a balanced breakfast. This will help prepare the brain. If there are concepts that are not clear, review them right before the exam. Then, take a deep breath and dive right in.
