Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Homestead District Curriculum
To achieve the curricular goals, elementary students can expect to read about their senses, animals, and opposites as well as classic literature like "The Secret Garden." In middle school, students encounter many famous works by authors like Edgar Allan Poe and Mark Twain. In high school, students move on to more advanced and classic texts.
Once students have completed the elementary school math curriculum, they should be able to perform operations, tell time, measure length, use place value, understand fractions, calculate area and perimeter, convert units of measure, determine volume, and construct graphs. Middle school students are expected to understand ratios, solve algebraic equations, understand statistics, find surface area and volume, use exponents, and apply the Pythagorean Theorem. Upon graduation, high school students should be capable of using matrices, creating algebraic equations, applying trigonometry, and proving geometric theorems.

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: How to Develop Critical Thinking Skills
Being educated does not mean being able to repeat information that has been gained; it means being able to reason and think. Helping your student learn how to think will improve academic performance. Ask questions like, “Which flowers do you like better? What do you like about it?” Practice sorting objects in everyday situations like unloading the dish washer. When a decision must be made, discuss the possible choices, their advantages, and their disadvantages; then allow the student to make the decision. When new information is encountered, relate it to something else that the student has seen or heard. For example, “Remember when you studied oysters? These pearl earrings are made from the pearls that the oyster made.” Once your student is able to think critically, he or she will be able to learn independently and have better success in school.
