Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Horn Lake District Curriculum
In Language Arts, students begin with sight words and storybooks in the first year of school. These young students learn to recognize the words for each number up to ten, their color words, and words made up of two to four letters. When they enter second grade they learn how to use a dictionary, including the use of guide words and parts of speech. Once in high school, they discover literature from the Middle Ages and Anglo-Saxon times, including the dramas and poetry.
Math is also addressed in the beginning years Horn Lake Public Schools. Young children learn, not only to count to 100, but they also learn how to compare and describe differences between two objects by weight, height and length. By fourth grade they are able to compare their customary measurements, foot, inch, yard, mile, and compare it to the metric equivalent. They also begin to learn about lines, and 2D and 3D figures in this grade. In high school, these students learn how to measure and create these figures, as well as how to graph coordinates on a grid.

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 Request Help for a Child
Once a parent realizes that they need to seek assistance for their child, the next step is to decide what to do next. The next step would be to connect with the child’s teacher to see if they might have some suggestions. Today, many teachers have email, which may be the quickest way to make this contact. When going into the meeting, it is a good idea to let the teacher know if you are looking for suggestions, or if you are asking for help. Keep an open mind during the meeting and make sure the child knows that the teacher and you are working together to assist the student. Once this foundation has been laid, the pathway is open to gaining the help that is needed.
