Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Gardnerville District Curriculum
The curriculum in Mathematics covers the topics of numerical operations, algebraic operations, geometry, statistics and probability, trigonometry and pre-calculus/calculus. During the elementary years, students learn the foundations of many of these topics through their learning about numbers, operations, patterns, shapes, spatial awareness and other topics. These form the foundation for what students will need to learn about algebra or geometry.
The Language Arts curriculum is organized around reading, writing, speaking and listening, and research skills. These are generally intertwined and students write to respond to the texts they read and learn discussion skills by discussing the books they read. There is a strong emphasis on writing as students need to be able to write for a variety of purposes and be able to communicate their ideas clearly while also providing supporting evidence to their claims.

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: Strategic Planning and Successful Program Implementation
Effective strategic planning is essential to successful program implementation. When school administrations are planning any sort of program change, it is essential that all staff and teachers who will be affected are allowed to be a part of the strategic planning process. If teachers will be most affected by the proposed program, they need to have input so that they will be able to develop a feeling of ownership. If teachers are not included in the process, but are simply given the changes and asked to implement them, more than likely program implementation will not be successful. If, however, they have work invested in the strategic planning process, they will be more inclined to make the program work. Strategic planning does not, however, end after implementation. Administrators need to put into effect a system by which teachers can report what is working and what isn’t. By catching problems as they occur, there is a better chance for program success.
