Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Florissant District Curriculum
Communication Arts starts students off in elementary grades with strong vocabulary skills, word recognition, and a fundamental reading foundation. Regular practice with grammar usage and the analysis of works of fiction and nonfiction begin in the early grades as well. In upper grades, coursework diversification builds on the early grade skills, allowing students to analyze and critique literary works, while gaining confidence in their own critical writing skills.
Science skills are supported in early grades with a solid foundation in the principles of matter, energy, force and motion. Living organisms and ecological systems are explored in early grades with hands-on activities that support an early understanding of the scientific method and observation skills. Human impact on the environment and the impact of scientific development are key strands that support student interest. Upper grades support student career interests in the sciences, agriculture and technology through specialized career pathways.

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: What Is Constructivist Learning
The theory of constructivism states that we learn best by reflecting and thinking about our prior experiences. Through this window of past experience, we can understand the world around us in a way that is unique to ourselves. In order to structure learning in a room full of diverse learning styles, it is helpful to bring in a topic to which most students can relate. This engages our learning process, and brings our own ideas to the table from the applicability of our own experiences. Learning is truly the most meaningful when it has incorporated our own ideas, and when we have generated our own learning rather than simply repeating or memorizing what someone else has told us. Hands-on projects and problem solving, plus analysis and prediction of answers to open-ended questions, helps create dialogue and experiences that go beyond the classroom.
