Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Carson City District Curriculum
Mathematics courses are designed to help students understand the nature of mathematics and how it relates to real-world applications. Elementary students practice measuring skills, math operations like addition, division, and using fractions, and learn geometry and algebra as an integrated part of their math curriculum. This prepares them as high school students to understand more sophisticated math principles.
Language Arts learning includes the basics like reading, writing, and grammar, but the Common Core State Standards have a particular focus on understanding and applying informational texts to learning. Even as early as first and second grade, students are introduced to glossaries, tables of contents, and following written instructions. In high school, students are expected to use informational texts as a basis for learning in other subjects like science and engineering, mathematics, history, social studies, and geography.

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.

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: Building Communication Skills
Listening and talking. Reading and writing. These are the keys to building successful communication skills, but the truth is that they seem much simpler on paper than they are in reality. So, how can you get your child practicing and improving these skills? First, try reading aloud to him or her, and then asking questions about the details of the story you are reading. Then flip the situation—have your student read to you, then ask you questions! This will not only get them paying more attention to their reading, but will also help them form critical thinking skills, understand how questions are formed, and consider what kind of information is important. Also, remember that students understand priorities in life based on the behaviors their parents model. Getting children interested in reading can be as easy as sitting down with a book yourself.
