Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Houma District Curriculum
In order to meet and exceed curricular goals, in Language Arts students are taught how to read and navigate text, read, understand and apply new information from a variety of sources. Learning to access and evaluate information in text and from digital and visual sources is also a goal for each child. Writing to inform or learn is used throughout the grade levels and in all core classes.
Math computation is a skill taught in the early grades, and practiced as students grow and learn. In the middle grades the focus is on problem-solving, independent learning and building skills to work as a team member to identify problems, analyze possibilities and creatively select solving strategies to solve those problems. Explaining their thinking verbally and in writing are skills that students need to acquire in order to meet the challenges of a global society, encompassing the mathematic literacy which is an aim of the curriculum.

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 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 Can I Encourage My Older Child to Be More Responsible?
As students enter middle or high school, friendships with peers become very important! During these years, students need help from their families to learn about setting goals, developing a good work ethic, and following directions well. Students often need family help and support in these areas. Help your child set small, reasonable goals for the grades he or she wants to earn in each subject. Help him or her make a plan to reach that goal. Periodically during the quarter, have a “goal meeting” to assess progress and make changes as necessary. Create clear expectations for your pre-teen or teenager. Write them down, discuss them together. Have a plan of rewards and consequences based on your teen’s choices.
