Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Gladstone District Curriculum
Mathematics instruction begins in elementary school with an emphasis on number sense and operations. By the middle grades, students show proficiency with algebraic concepts. As students move higher in the secondary grades, the mathematical concepts studies give students the necessary knowledge and procedural skills to use mathematic reasoning to solve problems in the world around them, and to appreciate math for its practical uses.
Science instruction starts with elementary students learning about a variety of science concepts with a constant link to scientific inquiry, where students develop questions and participate in simple investigations. The scientific inquiry continues through the secondary grades, with a great emphasis on technology and how the two disciplines come together to answer questions in the real world.

As students’ progress through the grade levels, there is a greater emphasis on informational text and how to evaluate the quaity of information. As students enter the secondary grades, there is a greater focus on research skills for the purpose of communicating accurately and effectively with others, and in preparation for college level academics.

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 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: Awareness of Learning Disabilities
Parents need to be aware of any troubles their children might be having, but not rush to judgment or use labels unnecessarily. Some of the most common learning disabilities are ADHD and dyslexia. Dyslexia can be harder to recognize, however certain questions may help guide understand learning disabilities. For instance, if a child has trouble recognizing words or struggles with reading, writing, spelling, and numbers, these are signs of dyslexia, a specific learning disability. Dyslexia is a neurological condition, which means that there is no cure, but you can get help and learn strategies for how to cope with the difficulties of reading. Dyslexia is genetic, meaning it usually runs in the family. If you are very successful in some subjects in school, but find that you get frustrated when it comes to reading or remembering what you read, you may be showing signs of dyslexia. Just because you experience these difficulties does not guarantee that you have dyslexia. Only a professional can give a diagnosis. If you think you might have dyslexia, let your doctor know right away.
