Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Delano District Curriculum
Delano’s middle school math curriculum includes an in-depth examination of algebra. Learners explore the concepts of independent and dependent variables and devise an understanding of the difference between them. Students also learn how to use linear functions to represent various relationships. The graphical properties of linear functions are explored as well, with learners identifying slopes and intercepts. Radicals and absolute values are also introduced. Students evaluate such expressions and note the steps required to generate equivalent expressions.
The English language arts curriculum in Delano seeks to help kindergarten students begin the development phase of speaking and listening abilities. Students participate in one-on-one, small group, and class discussions in order to learn the rules and procedures for speaking and listening. Learners develop an understanding of how to take turns to speak, how to raise their hands before speaking, and how to listen intently while others are speaking. Asking and answering questions as a means to propel conversations is a topic of study as well.

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: The Importance of Writing
Writing is a powerful tool. You can use letters to the editor, speeches, and articles to sway your audience. Because it is such an important aspect of critical thinking, writing persuasive content pieces is part of the curricula for various subjects. This quality is even measured in standardized tests. The first paragraph should contain your thesis, or the opinion you have and are writing about. The body paragraphs (steps 2-4) consist of topic sentences (the evidence you acquired), two sentences that comment or explain why your evidence supports the thesis, and a concluding sentence. The last paragraph with restate the points of the thesis, but don’t just rewrite the introduction paragraph. This paragraph is your last chance to appeal to your audience. Use emotional language and a sense of urgency. Your audience should walk away with a call to action or a new understanding of your topic.
