Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Duluth District Curriculum
Elementary school students spend time in English Language Arts reading more non-fiction texts, progressing to more challenging texts and using evidence from what is read in their writing. Students will demonstrate their understanding and communication through writing. Mathematics learning for K-5 students involves more time on less topics, with practice and memorization of math facts and application of math skills to real-world problems to demonstrate understanding.
Middle school and high school students move from foundational learning to more advanced, critical thinking and reasoning. English Language Arts learning focuses on increasingly more complex text, more time spent on informational text and writing than literary. Literacy is also integrated into Science, Social Studies and technical subjects. Mathematics learning includes connecting mathematical concepts of proportion, geometry, scale drawing, algebraic equations and modeling for contextual problems.

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: Preparing for the End of the School Year
School is coming to an end in the next couple months. The last two months of school involve End-of-Grade test preparation and test taking. After that, the students can relax a little and enjoy the remaining days with their classmates and teacher as they look forward to the summer and moving to the next grade. During those last two months, make sure to contact your child’s teacher to learn of any areas your child still could use some help in; areas or skills you could work with him or her on to continue improving. This can not only help during the end-of-year testing but also in preparing your child for the more advanced learning that will occur during school next year in a higher grade. Continue to encourage your child to try their best; to students, the end of the school year signifies summer. That is it. Remind them that they need to “hang in there” a little longer, give the effort they gave (and maybe a little more) to this point in school, and that they will have their summer soon. Staying focused, for parents, teachers and students, during this time of the year can be hard. Just giving that little extra motivation to ourselves and our children can make the summer that much more rewarding.
