Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Festus District Curriculum
The curriculum focuses on a breadth of study; in a year, students delve deeply into fewer mathematical concepts, rather than skimming the surface of several, so that they have a firm understanding of these concepts on which to build. In science classes, students demonstrate problem solving skills in real-world situations. They begin with a study of the physical world and advance to more complex problems.
By focusing on real-world problems and situations, students are more likely to be able to engage the science and will learn it more easily. Students who have mastered these problem solving skills and techniques are more likely to carry this knowledge with them to future success in post-secondary learning, the work force, and their lives. Electives at the high school include a variety of options under the following topics: agriculture, fine arts and drama, family and consumer science, science, social studies, history, world languages, and technology education and engineering.

Festus District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Festus R-VI School District follows the Common Core State Standards in humanities, science, and math for its curriculum. This curriculum concentrates on a clear, organized set of math skills and concepts which encourage students to solve real-world problems. The curriculum defines what students should understand and be able to do in their study of each subject by the end of each school year. For instance, in Math students study how the math works and should be able to demonstrate an array of problem-solving strategies, rather than just memorizing formulas.
We currently cover the following Festus-area school district: Festus R-VI 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.
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: Private Colleges
The fundamental difference between private and public colleges is that public colleges are funded by the state, whereas private colleges are funded through tuition. This means that private colleges are often more expensive than state schools, though not all are. A competitive student might receive grants and scholarships that can balance out the cost of a private college. Since private schools are tuition driven, they are also more customer-oriented and strive to make themselves worth the cost. This means they offer more support, innovative technology, and generally a more hands-on environment. Most public schools are organized into universities, and some private ones are, but traditionally, a college tends to be private. Partly, this is also because private colleges tend to be smaller than public ones, which affords private colleges the opportunity to cater to their students more.
