Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Decatur District Curriculum
Mathematics learning in the early grades emphasizes foundational skill of number sense, computation, measurement and spatial recognition. Students build on skills and concepts, progressing in later grades to problem solving and reasoning skills to better comprehension and application of algebra, analytics, and mathematical models that assist in decision making for real-world application.
English Language Arts at all grade levels focuses on reading, speaking, listening and use of language, progressing to comprehension and usage of more complex reading and writing. Informational themes and short narratives are emphasized, giving students time and opportunities to demonstrate comprehension and language development. Writing includes the development and demonstration of argumentative, informational and explanatory skills. Reading and writing are integrated in all subjects throughout all grades.

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: The Importance of Special Subjects
So much of the school day and school night are spent on math, language arts, social studies and science. However, many students will say one of best things in school is music or art class. And how many times has your child said physical education is their favorite subject? Some of the best learning for students can come during these subject areas. Special subjects, or electives at the middle and high school grades, give students the opportunity to not only take a break from academic learning but also provide them the chance to learn what they like or may be good at other than writing or math skills. During elementary school, special subjects are required and incorporated through the school week. As students get into middle and high school, these “special subjects” become electives; students make their own choices of what to take. Encourage your student to try different electives that are not academic-specific. Guide them to use those electives in learning more about themselves as a growing individual.
