Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Brookings District Curriculum
As this school district has an uninterrupted instructional block in reading in the elementary grades, reading is also taught in conjunction with all of the subjects. Using reading instruction during history and science, as well as any supplementary courses, gives the students exposure to non-fiction texts and aids in the practice of comprehension and fluency. Writing is also taught so that students are able to provide written responses within any subject area.
In Math, technology is utilized as well as hands-on learning with the use of manipulatives. Students learn about geometry and measurement, algebraic patterns and relationships, and data analysis techniques over the years. The use of technology when teaching math assists the instructors in delivering modern, fresh instruction to the students of Brookings. It can help students see a range of practical applications for math and become an area that students wish to pursue in their studies.

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: The Role of the Intermediate Art Teacher
The middle school art teacher, teaching the intermediate grade levels, teaches the students all aspects of the fine art of drawing, sculpting, feeling and emotions with artistry, and painting. All of these are on so many levels, and the great advantage about being an art teacher is that all the students can learn at their own pace. There is no standardized testing in art, and many children enjoy having the time of the day to be creative and relax. Art teachers are very popular because of this! The middle school art teacher is responsible for preparing students who show a true talent and interest for the next level.
