Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Gulfport District Curriculum
In Language Arts, students begin in kindergarten by reading and discussing the important aspects of a story. The students re-tell stories in their own words to show comprehension and analysis. In high school, students take the skills they have gathered since kindergarten to analyze all types of texts. When they graduate, these students are able to look at a topic with understanding and with the skills to learn more.
In Social Studies, students begin by hearing or reading a book and discussing the time line of the story to discern past, present and future. As their education continues, they compare and contrast the roles of people in the community as they visit them and keep a travel log. Students then are able to look at people outside their community, or even those that originally settled in the area, to see how these people influenced the world they are in today. When they finish high school, these students will have the tools to understand past events and how these occurrences shape the world of today and tomorrow.

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: Helping Children Memorize Sight Words
Sight words make up a majority of a person’s everyday vocabulary. To help a child memorize these words can be challenging and rewarding. One option to make this easier is to make flashcards of each word, then spend a few minutes every day reviewing or introducing new words until the child can recognize it easily. Another method is to label objects throughout the house. As the child goes to the labeled item, they say the word that is written before interacting with the object. A third method to help children learn these words is to create magnets out of the words and allow the child to arrange the magnets in sentences. Before long these words will become easy for the child to recognize.
