Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ellisville District Curriculum
Students develop critical thinking and critical reading skills as well as analytical writing skills which will serve them well in other classes, in college, and in life. In science classes, students learn to be science literate. They learn to employ systematic processes to solve problems and to test their theories objectively. They apply these problem solving skills to real-world applications. Beginning with a study of the physical world, students progress to engineering problems, learning skills that will help them in college and beyond.
Math classes focus on teaching students how the math works, rather than just having them memorize equations. Students are provided with a solid foundation so that they can advance confidently to move complex mathematical problems. The goal in all classes is to give students the skills, habits, and strategies for finding and understanding information that they need for future success.

Ellisville District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The schools in the Rockwood School District have adopted the Missouri Learning Standards for humanities, sciences, and mathematics classes. In humanities classes, students read a variety of complex texts, from novels to nonfiction. They read for understanding and content as well as technique. Students answer guiding questions, form opinions, and gather evidence to support their opinions. They write well-reasoned analytical essays using facts and quotes to support their arguments – and these skills are integrated throughout the curriculum.
We currently cover the following Ellisville-area school district: Rockwood School District.

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.

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: Early Decision vs. Regular Decision
There are many benefits to Early Decision (ED) applications but some drawbacks. Students are often treated favorably because they’ve committed to this college, but they can miss out on possible better offers from other colleges. Regular Decision isn’t binding and doesn’t have these drawbacks, but students might have to wait a lot longer to hear a response, and they aren’t favored the way Early Decision applicants are. Money is a first-come, first-served game, and Early Decision applicants have first-crack at financial aid, but Early Decision is also highly competitive, and a student can be edged out by other students. For a safety, Regular Decision is a no-frills, easy approach. For a reach school, applying Early Decision can give a student just enough of a boast to send him/her over the edge into acceptance.
