Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Harahan City District Curriculum
In Mathematics, students focus on learning basic skills including computation such as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, algebra, geometry, proportional reasoning, and statistics. The goal is build a strong mastery of core math skills so that students can apply what they have learned to higher math and in real life situations. In Science, students are taught the process of investigating and testing hypotheses and learn how to observe and document natural phenomenon.
In English and Language Arts, students learn to read, write, speak and listen. Reading material is balanced between informational text and literature so that students are prepared for the type of reading they may encounter on the job. English literacy requirements and standards are applied across school subjects so that the focus on using correct English is reinforced. The development of strong vocabulary skills and the ability to use language appropriately in written work is also emphasized.

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.

Chalk Talk: Resources for Budding Astronomers
A cool way to learn about insects like butterflies and moths is to visit the Butterlies and Moths of America website otherwise known as BAMONA. The site is part of the BAMONA project that was created to provide a resource that collects, stores and provides images and information on butterfly and moth (Lepidoptera) species in the United States. Visitors can view photos of butterflies and moths that can be used to identify species in their own backyards. Information is provided by professional lepidopterists and as they are referred to on the site Citizen Scientists otherwise known as interested amateurs. On the site kids can check out recent sightings of butterflies and moths and find out how they can add their own sightings to the database. Students can learn about Lepidoptera species that are native to their own area, read about their habitat, their life history and when they are likely to take flight. The website is recommended by the American Library Association for kids in elementary and middle school.
