Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Brewer District Curriculum
The crux of the ELA/Literacy program is the Career and College Readiness Anchor program that puts heavy emphasis on literacy. Literacy in reading, writing and communication is the foundation students need if they are to be successful in other core content areas such as History, Science and Social Studies. Students learn problem solving skills, with attention to reading text in way that allows them to comprehend the complex ideas presented. Students learn to skills in evidence collection, persuasive reasoning, and how to present their ideas in writing.
Math is called the gatekeeper subject, as it opens the door to the very important STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) program. Students learn basic skills of number recognition, addition and subtraction, which provides basic algebra skills. The learn shapes and colors and how to place shapes in organized groups, which provides basic geometry skills. The skills learned in math and related subjects in the STEM program will help students to get some of the highest paying jobs available.

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: How Can I Help My Child Develop Critical Thinking Skills?
Basically, critical thinking denotes the ability to organize and synthesize information for yourself. Instead of just accepting what you are told, you check things and work it out for yourself. When your child goes through that “why” phase turn the tables and ask them for their opinion. “What do you think?” Play a game with your child that requires that s/he compares items and determines the differences and similarities. This activity is comparing and contrasting and it is an activity that will enhance critical thinking skills. Read stories that leave you hanging at the end, with no conclusion. Ask your child to make up a conclusion. What does s/he think would happen? These are excellent ways to help your child develop critical thinking skills. Ask lots of questions to get your child to think and get creative.
