Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Forest Acres District Curriculum
English Language Arts classes allow students the opportunities to read a variety of texts including both non-fiction and literature. They practice synthesizing what they read and obtain writing skills that can be used in countless situations. They also learn a number of styles of writing and ways to organize their thoughts in longer, analytic essays. The foundational skills they learn in language arts classes translate to other content areas as well as preparing them for college classes and career pursuits.
Math classes using the Common Core Standards prepare students to understand the concepts with great depth. The classes have deeper focus as opposed to the broad focus of the past. Rather than studying ten or more concepts in a given year and revisiting them again and again, students practice only five or six standards. They review them until mastery which promotes long term retention, and therefore students require less re-teaching in the future.

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: Parent Teacher Conferences
Parent teacher conferences can be nerve-wracking for many families. Parents who enter them prepared are sure to have a better experience. Before conferences, talk to your child about how they think school is going. Ask them about their subjects, homework, friends, behavior, and more. Be sure to find out if they have any concerns, so that you can address them with your child’s teacher. Listen to the teacher, and don’t get defensive if he or she has something negative to say about your child. If the teacher didn’t have your child’s best interest in mind, they wouldn’t share these things with you. Work towards a plan together, and be sure to follow through with your part. Finally, if anything comes up after conferences, be sure to get in touch with the teacher. They will certainly want to address the needs of your child.
