Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cape Girardeau District Curriculum
Cape Girardeau Public School District uses a wide variety of objectives, coaching tools and assessments to ensure students are learning at the top of their game. The applicability of scientific knowledge to a wide variety of subjects is emphasized throughout the grade levels, as is the necessity of science communication skills. The nature of matter and energy, structures of living ecosystems and organisms, and the process of scientific inquiry are reinforced, helping students to progress to the upper grades with a solid foundation in scientific thinking.
The Language Arts program emphasizes the ability to create a well-constructed thesis and argue its defense with evidence. Informative texts and imaginative writing help students deconstruct complex information and think broadly about their own creative process. Research, revision and reflection are hallmarks of writing and reading skills, from early grades on toward high school, with a keen sense of how good writing and reading skills apply to a wide variety of subjects.

Our flagship tutoring programs are available for $199.99/month which include regular one-on-one tutoring, academic mentorship, bi-monthly progress reports, learning profiles, and parental conference calls.

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: Vygotsky’s Theory of Cognitive Development
How do our social surroundings and culture impact how we learn? Lev Vygotsky, a Russian psychologist, developed a theory of how we think and learn as we grow—cognitive development—based on two basic principles. He theorized that when we learn, we understand our world around us better from within the context of social interactions and the impact of our culture. How someone’s culture views a certain topic, a certain object, or a social norm can have a great deal of impact on our willingness to learn, and our passion for that topic. In addition, the people with whom we learn and who influence our learning process greatly influence our learning desires and goals.
