Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ferndale District Curriculum
Fernadale School District’s technology curriculum seeks to help students develop a better understanding of the growth and role of technology in our everyday lives. Students explore how technology is rapidly changing and leading to advanced developments in the areas of education, communication, and manufacturing, to name a few. How students can harness the power of technology to expand their ability to learn is another primary topic of study. Students learn how to utilize computers, the Internet, and various computer programs to investigate and learn about new topics and ideas.
In middle school and high school, the curriculum focus shifts to content and the ability to work at analytic levels with the learning materials. Students apply their fundamental English, Math, and Science skills to classes such as literature, poetry, physical science, life science, algebra and geometry. Classes are available for advanced students and students who need remediation at both the middle and high school levels.

Fernadale District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum and instruction team at Ferndale School District has developed four focus areas essential for student success at all grade levels. The team focuses on professional collaboration, common assessments, instructional frameworks, and tracking of student progress. This is a cyclical model that is always using data retrieved from common assessments to modify curriculum and/or instruction when necessary. Foundational skills in reading, writing, math and science are the focus of elementary curriculum in the district. Students learn the fundamentals of reading and reading comprehension, number sense, arithmetic, and the nature of science. As they progress through their elementary curriculum, students hone these skills in each grade level.
We currently cover the following Fernadale-area school district: Fernadale School District.

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: Taking Their Time during Assignments
Teaching children to take their time when doing homework helps sets them up for a successful life. When a child hurries through their assignment, sloppy work and mistakes are often the results. Parents can help by letting the child know that hurrying through their work is not right. Talk with the teacher about working together to help improve the child’s homework. Then let the child know about this cooperation with the teacher. When the child does their work, make sure that they check over their work for any revising that may need done. It is also a good idea to set a time every day when school work is to be done. If the child finishes early, they should use the remaining time to review material and to check homework. Finally, parents need to model what they would like the child to do. This means if something does not work out, show the child how things may need to be redone, even by grown-ups.
