Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Brookings District Curriculum
In elementary Math, first graders learn three major skills, counting forwards and backwards by ones and tens, basic addition and subtraction, and the building and drawing of geometric shapes. Later in elementary school they also learn to measure lengths, identify 2 and 3 dimensional shapes, and how to form fact families. In middle school, students learn to add and subtract fractions and decimals, and divide whole numbers. They also describe and analyze the physical characteristics of 3 dimensional shapes.
By high school, in Math, students understand how to apply a given rule to extend a linear function pattern, to represent linear functions or solve linear equations. They analyze how different data patterns are related. Students learn and apply the Pythagorean Theorem, the formula for finding the volume of 3 dimensional shapes, and how 2 dimensional figures are similar. Students are expected to be able to look at any type of math problem and know the best way to solve it while also showing their work process.

Brookings District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The schools in Brookings adhere to the Oregon Content Standards and Common Core Standards as the framework for the academic and career courses in the schools. These curriculum frameworks designate what students should learn at each grade level in their academic subjects and statewide tests are aligned to these goals to ensure that each student is achieving the goals. Students are also offered the chance to participate in community outreach and awareness programs and school-wide initiatives on matters of character and personal development.
We currently cover the following Brookings-area school district: Brookings-Harbor School District.

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.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
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: Common Core Standards Implementation
The Common Core State Standards were developed for Math and Language Arts so that there could be a nationally-arrived at conclusion as to what students should learn and be able to do in these subjects. While some school districts have fully implemented Common Core, others plan to use a combination of these and state standards or--more rarely--not incorporate them at all. The Common Core Standards encompass math and literacy, embedding other subjects such as science and social studies into the two main content areas. In addition to the Common Core and state standards, the Nation Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) and the International Reading Association (IRA) provide their own sets of standards. School districts typically do not require educators to use these, but they are very informative--especially for remedial math teachers and reading specialists--as these organizations are up-to-date on the best practices in the two content areas.
