Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Great Falls District Curriculum
In Reading in grades K-12, standards include knowing and applying phonics and analyzing words by using a variety of strategies to aid in decoding. Letter sounds, patterns in syllables, the knowledge of affixes are taught to assist the students in reading accurately. The students practice and develop their reading skills to be able to read fluently and at an appropriate pace. Understanding grade level text and increasing comprehension is also a benchmark skill.
In the Mathematics comprehensive curriculum, standards are comprised of solving problems of varying difficulties by mastering multi-step problem-solving methods. The students are taught how to use strategies, choose the best computational tools, and to generate ways to apply the correct solutions with precision. The teachers also instruct the students on how to communicate their process for solving problems orally, in writing, and by using mathematic models.

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: The Role of the Middle School English Teacher
The Middle School English Teacher not only instructs reading, but also teaches writing and oral language skills. The students write a variety of narrative, expository, and persuasive essays using the complete writing process. The teacher also exposes them to public speaking and guides them in the process of speaking in front of an audience, usually their peers. Many English teachers in the middle school setting also help with clubs, such as preparations for the spelling bee and yearbook. Some teachers also participate in clubs such as photography, creative writing, drama, book clubs, and forensics, or debate.
