Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Converse District Curriculum
Algebra is a part of the mathematics curriculum at Converse Schools. Students begin the process of learning algebraic thinking by learning how to solve equations. They also learn how to solve one unknown factor by using tools that they learn in classes, such as forming generalization or by deconstructing numbers. By the time they graduate they learn the importance of symbolic reasoning in mathematics and how it can be used throughout their lives.
Reading and writing go hand-in-hand in the Language Arts curriculum at Converse Schools. Students learn to read and write by watching teachers demonstrate these skills and then by practicing, letter by letter, and word by word. These two subjects continue to work together as students use literature to show them how to write for different purposes. Students look to short stories, novels and myths to show them how to become better writers in each of these fields.

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: SAT Math
Many students face the math portion of the SAT with a sense of fear. This can be relieved if the student can be prepared as to what to expect. Before considering taking the exam, the student should take Algebra and Geometry. They then need to commit themselves to studying every day to help prepare. If they purchase the College Board exam book there are sample tests to take for practice. There are three sections to the math test, each one takes between 20 to 25 minutes to complete. Each question, whether one of the easy ones at the beginning of the sections, or the harder ones at the end, is worth the same value. The SAT does not reward guesses, so make sure of the answer before marking the sheet. A wrong answer takes one quarter to a third of a point from the score. With these ideas, perhaps the student will be able to face the test with more confidence.
