Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Germantown District Curriculum
Germantown and Shelby County School District are focusing on ELA and Mathematics standards, according to the Common Core national standards, like many other school districts. These schools use technology in their quest to provide more rigorous lessons that enable more critical thinking and speaking skills. Their adaptation started with kindergarten, and has been working up to higher grades every year.
These schools are on track to have the Common Core standards adaptation fully implemented by the 2014-2015 schools. In doing so, they are improving their educational materials and strategies, using resources with higher complexity for language arts and mathematics, integrating social studies and science within their learning. Teachers are collaborating to find rigorous materials and informational texts to correspond to both Common Core and state standards. These transitions will help this school district continue to thrive as a top-rated district.

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.

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 Get Your Children Ready for Kindergarten
Your kids can be ready and successful in kindergarten with just a few good routines. Good routines at playtime, bath time, mealtime and bedtime can make a huge impact on your child’s skills in school. Having a few easy and affordable learning tools available make these times both fun and educational, without taking any more time than these activities normally take. During playtime, if you take advantage of some teachable moments, by playing pretend games, and your child’s regular blocks to talk about letters and numbers. You can practice drawing letters and numbers and spelling simple words that are meaningful to your child (car, toy, food) to increase awareness of phonics and beginning reading skills. At bath time, you can use the foam letters and numbers to make words together, making the names of people you know, to encourage your child to see how letters and words are related.
