Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Brooks District Curriculum
The curriculum provides rigorous standards in each academic subject, and provides opportunities to integrate subject area learning to other subjects and to the real world. The English language arts curriculum sets out goals that include reading fiction and literature, but also ensures that students encounter various types of non-fiction which they will use in college and beyond. Likewise, the writing curriculum ensures students have a chance for creative self-expression, but can also write for persuasive and analytic purposes as well.
The Math curriculum lays out goals for topics such as numeracy, operations, algebra, geometry, data analysis as well as advanced math courses students take in high school like trigonometry and calculus. One goal of the math curriculum is to tie the learning to real life uses of math. For instance, students may research stocks and observe closing share prices just like the real stock market. It is also a good chance for students to learn some financial literacy as they have to weigh the pros and cons of each decision.

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: Parental Involvement
Being involved in a child's education is an important part of parenting; it serves to show just how important education is and to instill the values that bring about a true appreciation for learning. However, parental involvement is about what the parent can do, and with the wide range of options for volunteering in the schools, a parent must make decisions about where their talents will best serve the district. For instance, some parents may be motivated to raise funds for sports or music extracurriculars, other parents may be engaged by the idea of joining a school council and advising the district on matters of policy. Some parents may enjoy working with individual students, and can look into tutoring or mentoring. The work a parent does to support the schools does not need to be in their child's school, per se, it is just a matter of finding the activities that best suit the parent.
