Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Indian Hills District Curriculum
The Mathematics program is a balanced program that enhances problem solving skills that can connect to real-life situations. Students are introduced to the basic mathematics concepts in Kindergarten by learning base 10 numbers. They learn to count objects, assigning numbers and they learn to recognize numbers. They learn to add and subtract, using objects to represent concrete ideas. Students are also introduced to geometric ideas by learning shapes, sorting them into appropriate groups.
Literacy/Language Arts curriculum prepares students by giving them instruction in reading and writing, helping students to develop and improve on these skills with each passing grade level. The goal of this curriculum is to help student to develop and use critical thinking skills and to increase comprehension. Both reading and writing cover a range of fictional and infomational purposes, and students are taught various analytic approaches to each.

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: Teaching Your Child: Is It Ever Too Early?
The brain is a mystery, in spite of everything we already know about it and children can really amaze us with how quickly they learn. As far as beginning to teach your child, it’s never too early. You can actually begin teaching your child while he or she is still in the womb. Begin by reading out loud and singing to your baby. Actually, from the moment your baby is born, the brain begins processing and analyzing information. As a parent, you can teach by introducing new experiences, such as allowing your child to touch different types of surfaces, putting a crib mobile above the baby and reading to your baby.
