Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Independence District Curriculum
Independence’s high school science curriculum includes a physics course that introduces students to the processes of scientific inquiry and application. Students learn about motion and examine the principles of motion with regard to position and time, velocity and time, and acceleration and time. Learners utilize graphs to solve various types of problems, including those involving uniform acceleration during free fall. Various forms of energy are studied as well. Students explore nuclear energy, gravitational energy, and the concept of conservation of energy as well.
The career-technical curriculum in Independence includes an in-depth study of health sciences. In middle school, students can choose from a variety of studies within this area. Learners explore exercise and athletic training in which they apply procedures to care for injured athletes and help them rehabilitate. Health science and technology is another component of the curriculum. Students learn about various healthcare-related occupations, and acquire some basic skills that are required for effective and safe patient care.

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 the SAT
Students should bear in mind a number of tips that will help them improve their performance on the SAT. First, taking online practice tests will help students become familiar with the way in which tests are structured. It additionally gives them insight into how instructions and questions are worded. Second, when taking the test, it is a good rule of thumb to answer the easier questions first, leaving the more difficult questions for the end of the testing period. This ensures the maximum number of questions are answered, while also helping students build some confidence by quickly and accurately answering the majority of the test’s questions. Lastly, when scheduling a subject test for the SAT, students should ensure the test date is as close to possible to the completion of the subject. For example, students taking a foreign language test should do so only after the completion of several years of study in that language. Doing so gives them the best possible chance to master the material and show that mastery on the SAT subject test.
