Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ellsworth District Curriculum
By the time students enter first grade they will be able to write their names. In first grade teachers will help students to build upon their skills and to begin the teaching of fundamental reading and comprehension skills. By the time students reach high school skills are developed to the point that students read and analyze text in fiction and nonfiction and write several types of papers, such as informative and persuasive writing.
The foundation for math and science skills are also constructed in kindergarten, with students learning to recognize and write numbers, as well as how to add and subtract numbers using objects, which gives students their basic algebra skills. A foundation for geometry is built by teaching students to group blocks of different shapes, like rectangles, triangles and circles, into the right groups. With each grade, students review the skills they learned and build more complex skills upon their foundation. Call this, if you will, the “building blocks” of education.

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: Make Learning Fun
We all know that kids need to learn, but does it have to be boring? Many of us remember the grade school days that saw us sitting straight up at our desks with our feet flat on the floor while the teacher talked and wrote on the blackboard. Those days are over and now when we look inside a classroom we see students learning through engaging and interactive hands-on activities. One might even assume that there is no learning going on. This could not be further from the truth! Strides in science and education have shown educators that kids learn better through interactive learning and play learning. When your child is pretending to be an animal or wearing costumes pretending to be doctors or teachers, they are learning skills that will serve them for a lifetime. Join in with your child and play pretend games. You will learn more about your child than you thought possible and you will also be creating great memories for your child that will last a lifetime.
