Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hastings District Curriculum
In the early years of primary reading, the students are immersed in print, and learn ways to demonstrate their knowledge of print concepts. Using oral language activities, students learn phonemic awareness, as well as begin reading texts using one-to-one word recognition, fluency, and intonations. Vocabulary acquisition is also focused upon in the primary grades, and students use the new vocabulary and apply it to their comprehension of the text.
In Mathematics, in the early grades, students explore how numbers work as they manipulate whole numbers to show basic operational abilities. They will learn how to count in various ways, and they will become familiar with different patterns, geometric shapes, and the use of data in graphing. As students progress, they will study relationships between numbers and properties, more advanced methods for measurement and computation, and ways to interpret data.

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: The Benefits of Book Clubs
The benefits of book clubs are many. Book clubs give students an opportunity to read for enjoyment, to visit with their peers, to engage in deep, meaningful conversations about the text, and to strengthen their reading. Book clubs let students read books that otherwise they would not have time for, as many book club books are not read in the academic environment. Reading for pure fun and pleasure are the experiences a book club can provide!
