Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hugo District Curriculum
The English language arts curriculum in Hugo is based on the Common Core State Standards. An essential part of the curriculum is helping high school students develop excellent vocabulary skills. Students use the context of writings to determine the meaning of unknown words and phrases. Students also work on identifying the proper changes that must be made to words to change their meaning, such as transforming ‘analysis’ to ‘analyze.’ Both print and digital resources are introduced to students as well, such that they have the resources needed to determine the meaning of a word.
The science curriculum in Minnesota includes a comprehensive examination of engineering. Middle school students look at common engineering systems, such as bridges, and identify the impacts that such systems have on the daily lives of humans. Learners develop an understanding of the design process, and come to an understanding that there is no perfect design. The risks and rewards of engineering something are analyzed, with students noting the importance of learning from one’s mistakes to make future designs that much better.

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.

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: Paying for College on a Budget
Paying for your child’s college can be one of the most expensive endeavors you will undertake. But making those expenses more affordable is relatively easy given enough time to plan and prepare. Beginning a college savings account, even as late as when your child is in high school, allows you to set money aside tax-free for your child’s education. Any money put into a college savings account does not count toward financial aid eligibility determinations, so even having several thousands of dollars in such an account won’t negatively impact your child’s ability to get need-based aid. Another great way to save money is to encourage your child to take concurrent courses in high school. Concurrent enrollment courses allow your child to earn both high school and college credit, and often free of charge. The more credits your child can take in high school, the less you will have to pay in college expenses.
