Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Duncan District Curriculum
In English Language Arts, within the primary writing strand, the students are taught usage and mechanics. The students are instructed on the capitalization and the identification of many abbreviations in which they will come into contact as readers and writers, such as “Dr.”, “Mrs.”, and “St.” Using proper mechanics in writing is also emphasized, such as the use of capitalization at the beginning of a sentence, when using the pronoun “I” when writing “Dear” in greetings and always when using proper nouns.
The students in the primary grades begin to perform mathematics skills that will prepare them for the spiraling curriculum as they mature and move on to the higher concepts. Patterning with numbers and shapes is performed by the students, and as the patterns begin as simple two-variable patterns, they do increase in difficulty throughout the school year. They will also create their own patterns with different designs.

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 Role of the Band Director
The band director has many responsibilities. Not only does he teach classes to various instrument players, but the band director is responsible for choreographing the routines for the band that they play during the many games of the school year. The band director must choreograph the performances, but also be sure all of the members know the music and play it well. Between uniforms, fund raising, teaching, and traveling to performances, the band director plays many roles!
