Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Independence District Curriculum
In Mathematics, students follow a core concepts program that indicates what is to be learned at each grade level. There is a list of basic skills to be taught at all grade levels. In early years, basic Math skills are taught and later applying the concepts becomes important. In elementary school, teachers begin with number use and move into adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. Algebra and geometry are introduced in early grades and are a large component of mathematics programs in middle and high school.
In English, students are taught reading, writing, speaking, listening, inquiring, observing and how to use technology to communicate. Students read an assortment of literature and learn to apply it to their daily lives. A writing initiative is in place and use of the written word s emphasized. Teachers continually assess students’ written work. Technology use is integrated into all areas of language arts. Students have access to the internet for all of their subjects.

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: Tips for Doing Homework
Homework will be a breeze if you follow two simple tips that work. You must first allow a time and second a place to do it. Schedule a definite time frame each day for homework. Have a place that you do homework that is quiet, comfortable and easy to access. With a time and a place set out you will find that the work is not so onerous. In the place, have a flat desk or table, a good light and a comfortable chair. Homework takes a lot less time if you attend to it in a reasonable time frame and have a reasonable place to do it.
