Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Brock District Curriculum
Foundational subjects like Science, Math, and English offer students the perspectives and thinking strategies they need to process new information. In Math, the computational strategies, methods of determining precise measurement and data, and methods of analyzing information and determining quantitative relationships are developed. In Science, the processes of observation, theory development, and experimentation are learned in addition to the factual knowledge within the sciences.
In English, students gain the literacy skills which are intended to be applied to all subjects, and the ability to communicate in writing and verbally. Students work on strategies for expressing themselves in different contexts, and learn how to evaluate information they receive in various styles of text. Students also learn the proper ways to use and cite other people's work within their own original papers and presentations. Media analysis is also a part of the curriculum and allows teachers to use popular media as texts which develops interpretative thinking.

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: Helping Teens Make Decisions
Teens can become overwhelmed when given decisions to make. Parents can help by modeling and gently guiding the teen when these time arrive. First, parents need to model decision-making which is based on a solid foundation. This means that the decision needs to be based on a knowledge of self, and values. Next, the decision-maker needs to be sure of themselves. This will allow them to step away from peer pressure. Parents can help by teaching them to think for themselves by asking their opinion, often. They also should be praised for positive choices and for achievements. Finally, show them that asking questions can also help them to make the better choices. Discuss the bad things that can happen right away and the things that they try to avoid. Parents should show that all decisions have consequences, and at times, feeling embarrassed is less of a consequence than other choices.
