Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hurricane District Curriculum
Key to the Core Standards are the integration of key competencies in reading and mathematics into all aspects of the curriculum. Reading and writing are integrated into the study of science, social studies, and other subjects. Students initially learn to read in the early grades, when they focus on building the skills to be able to read a text without extensive scaffolding (or teacher assistance) to understand it. Once they have that basic skill, they apply it when reading literature and informational texts about other subjects.
Similarly, in Mathematics, students are taught the core principles behind algebra, geometry, and statistics beginning in first grade. They are also taught to approach math problems with an emphasis on what they can do with this information, not performing a given set of operations. Word problems, applied mathematics, and visualizing mathematical concepts is central so that when students take advanced mathematics in high school, they are able to understand why and how they are used.

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: When Should You Seek Tutoring?
Choosing to find a tutor for your student is a difficult decision. It is very important to find a tutor for students who are falling behind their peers in the classroom. Particularly if they are having specific trouble in a limited subject or set of subjects, tutoring can be exactly what they need to get them over a block and into a better academic rhythm. At other times, your child might be ‘out of sync’ with their teacher, and need someone with an alternate perspective and style to make sure they master the material. Or your child might be highly advanced, and need someone who can help them grow beyond the rest of the class. If your child, or you, are dissatisfied with their educational experience, now might be the time to seek out professional tutoring.
