Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Geneva District Curriculum
In Language Arts students focus on learning the key elements of literacy: reading, writing, speaking, listening and language. The reading of literature is balanced against learning informational text starting at the earliest grades. Students also learn how to write using documented sources and using an academic vocabulary. The use of formal English is also applied to other academic coursework.
In Math, students focus on a limited number of topics which are studied in intensive detail including computation, algebraic thinking, proportional reasoning, and statistics, all of which lay the groundwork for students to learn Algebra and Geometry in the later grades. The focus in all Math work is for students to develop mathematical fluency in core math skills which can then be applied to real life issues. The goal for the Math curriculum is for students to develop skills so that they know what math tools to use and when to use them.

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.
