Educating Our Parents: Understanding the El Dorado District Curriculum
The elementary curriculum focuses on core academics and developing students literacy, communication, problem-solving, investigation, and inquiry skills. The teaching of reading is of special importance and goes beyond teaching children just how to read stories and literary works. There is an emphasis on non-fiction reading so that students succeed with the reading portion of courses such as science or social studies. Students are taught how different texts serve different purposes, and strategies to decode meaning from all text types.
In addition to a strong focus on academics, students may also pursue extracurricular activities through a full sports program, debate, forensics, student government, journalism, and photography. An alternative program is available for high school students who require a non-traditional setting, and the Butler County Special Education Cooperative serves the special needs of students in the district. As such, all students acquire the knowledge and skills they need in order to be successful in school and life.

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: What Are Multiple Intelligences?
Cognitive psychologist Harold Gardner believed that if we acknowledge student differences and cater to the areas in which children are “smart”, we will be able to facilitate learning more efficiently. Gardner stated that there are 8 Intelligences: interpersonal, intrapersonal, kinesthetic, existential, logical, linguistic, or visual, and if we allow students to use strength areas, they will experience increased success. By using Gardner’s theory in teaching, we provide students with choice in learning, thereby allowing them to take charge of their own learning. Numerous quizzes are available online for students of all ages to determine strength areas. After students take the quiz and see how they are “smart”, begin planning activities that plays on those area. If students are musical, for example, allow them to create a song or rap about a character from a novel. If they are kinesthetic, have them complete activities through a hands-on and active approach. When we look at students as individuals with diverse learning styles, learning is much more meaningful and lasting.
