Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Fort Myers District Curriculum
The Reading/Language Arts curriculum for Kindergarten through 5th grade places emphasis on key ideas, details, structure of texts, range of reading, word recognition, writing, and research. In grades 6-12, students learn about textual evidence, inferences, context, form/structure, point of view, multimedia text, arguments, comparing/contrasting text, central idea, key event, informative texts, and the development of writing and speaking skills.
The K-12 Mathematics curriculum is based on algebra, calculus, discrete mathematics, financial literacy, geometry, probability, statistics, and trigonometry. This knowledge is introduced within the elementary grades, but middle and high school students advance further into algebra. When the Science curriculum was developed, the entire community was considered. By producing students that are able to use scientific knowledge and appreciate the physical world, the Science curriculum can impact the community and the world in a positive way.

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.

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: How to Enhance Your Child’s Self-Motivation
Students who are self-motivated are set up for academic success. How should you help to develop your student’s self-motivation? First, offer choices when possible, such as which jelly they want for their sandwich or which chore they would like to complete first. Being able to make choices makes students feel empowered. Take an interest in everything that your student does; celebrate the successes and help them through their failures. Always find something positive to say in an unpleasant situation. Show your student how to organize school work, set a schedule, or get clothes ready for the next day. When he or she is able to do these things independently, relinquish control. Students want to be self-motivated; they just need the tools to be so.
