Fort Scott District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Kansas College and Career Ready Standards are used across schools in the Fort Scott Unified School District. The Standards were developed in a collaborative process that brought together teachers, subject area professionals, and community members to ensure that the goals are relevant and reasonable. A commitment to advanced use of innovative instruction in the classrooms of all grade levels is a major goal of the district. Interactive whiteboards have been placed in multiple classrooms and are especially utilized by the mathematics department for how they allow teachers to model problem-solving techniques to a whole class.
We currently cover the following Fort Scott-area school district: Fort Scott Unified School District 234.

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: Letters of Recommendation
It can be scary to ask teachers for letters of recommendations. It might seem like a no-brainer to ask teachers whose classes you’ve aced. This can certainly be true; a teacher who you have a good relationship with is probably going to write a good recommendation. But there can be other approaches. Sometimes, a student doesn’t do as well as s/he would like in a class, even though the student works really hard in that class. Maybe the student just isn’t good at math, for example. If the teacher believes that the student did work hard and tried his/her best, that teacher might well be able to mitigate the bad grade a little by explaining the situation. Obviously, this is only applicable if the student truly worked hard and the teacher believes this, but in a situation like this, it can do a lot of good.
