Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Fernley District Curriculum
Mathematics standards are based on the Common Core State Standards, the elective, nation-wide standards that are aimed at standardizing curriculum throughout the united states. In this model, kindergarteners learn about quantities and relationships between numbers and objects/items. By the end of fifth grade, students should be able to use fractions, understand negative numbers, and have a basic understanding of geometry. By the time students reach high school, the emphasis moves from a conceptual understanding of math to an effort to apply those concepts to real-world situations.
Science curriculum is based on state-wide learning standards and focuses on Next Generation Science Standards, a national initiative that helps students understand the nature of science in addition to learning facts and figures. Students in elementary school start with life science, physical/earth science, and move on to space and more abstract scientific concepts.

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: STEM – Contextual Learning for Success
The new buzz in education is STEM – Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. STEM is all about creating connections between applied sciences in order to reinforce educational concepts. For example, a career in engineering requires the use of technology, applied mathematics skills, and a deep understanding of science. Teachers are being asked to innovate their curriculum to facilitate these natural connections between the subjects. As technology becomes more advanced, STEM connections are being made for all grade levels. Students scientists plant seeds and measure their growth under different conditions just like agriculturalists would. Other classrooms use technology like GPS units to teach coordinates and connect students to the natural world with geocaching activities.
