Conway District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Conway Public Schools uses an instructional plan based on the Common Core Standards, and which is monitored by the Arkansas Department of Education. The Department of Education also requires Arkansas’ schools to participate in mandatory testing. The Arkansas Comprehensive Testing, Assessment, and Accountability Program (ACTAAP) includes the Smart Start Initiative, for grades K-4, the Smart Step Initiative, for grades 5-8, and subject examinations for grades 9-12. Since 2010, students who are enrolled in Algebra I must pass an End of Course Examination. Beginning in 2013-2014, students who are enrolled in English II must pass an End of Course Examination. In addition to the required assessments from the Arkansas Department of Education, Conway Public Schools uses The Learning Institute Interim Assessments to assess student progress and prepare the students for the state tests. These additional assessments are given in grades 1-12. Finally, the Arkansas Department of Education is collaborating with other states to develop assessments for the Common Core Standards.
We currently cover the following Conway-area school districts: Conway Public Schools.

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: Teaching Children to Care About Others
It is important that children learn to help other people. Children must be taught to care not only about themselves, but also about others. Here are some suggestions for creating caring children: 1) Have children care for a pet. This will help them learn to be gentle, which is an important quality, 2) Encourage your child to help others when they are injured or upset. Praise your child for caring about others. 3) Find a way for your family to volunteer to help others. Prepare food or visit a nursing home, 4) When a natural disaster or tragedy occurs, work with your family to help, by collecting needed donations or raising money to donate, 5) Finally, set a positive example and be a role model for your child by caring about others. Be sure to explain to your child why you are helping others and how important it is.
