Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Denham Springs District Curriculum
The Livingston Parish Public School system uses the Common Core Curriculum as approved by the State of Louisiana as the standard for coursework in the areas of Mathematics and English and Language Arts (ELA). In ELA, students focus on learning the English language through learning to read, write, speak and listen. The curriculum is progressive with students building on their skills grade by grade. Reading material includes both informational text and literature preparing students for the types of reading they may encounter on the job or in college. Students are expected to develop critical analysis skills in addition to be able to recognize the purpose of each text.
In Mathematics, students learn a finite number of core math subjects including arithmetic, algebra, geometry, statistics and measurement. The goal is for students to be math literate by the time they graduate high school with the ability to apply what they have learned to higher math and to develop necessary quantitative and logical reasoning skills.

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: Lewis and Clark Expedition
The story of the Lewis and Clark expedition continues to interest historians and the general public. At the PBS website concerning the film 'Lewis and Clark: The Journey of the Corps of Discovery' there is a wealth of information about the expedition including biographies of the participants, and all sorts of educational data. The site provides a wonderful introduction to the importance of the expedition and the section 'Into the Unknown' students can take on the role of Lewis or Clark and make decisions about how they would lead the Corps. Teachers and parents who are homeschooling their children can utilize the classroom resources and lessons plans available on the subject. In addition, there is information on Native American tribes encountered on the way, an interactive trail map, and an archive of journals and historical materials to enjoy.
