Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Jefferson City District Curriculum
In early grades, Science helps to coach young children to draw scientific conclusions and recognize patterns based on simple experiments. A special emphasis is placed on formulating and testing hypotheses, keeping focused on how science applies to the world at large. In high school science, which spans from chemistry, physics, biology, environmental science, and numerous electives, students take inquiry-based learning into their own hands—developing their own scientific experiments and communicating their knowledge.
Visual and Performing Arts are strongly supported via district curriculum, providing a wealth of opportunity for students to explore their creativity. Social Studies supports early learning through discussion of historical and global affairs, and the major elements of geographical analysis, helping students become true global learners. The Communication Arts build strong skills in vocabulary, grammar, syntax, and literary analysis, culminating in strong writing and reading skills for each student.

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.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
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: Piaget’s Theory of Cognitive Development
As we grow, our brains soak up knowledge. In doing so, we create mental maps that help us understand and learn from our environment. Young children progress from a stage of concrete, physical learning, to more abstract and conceptual conclusions at older ages. In the preoperational stage, from 2 to 7, children engage in play activities that promote imagination but may not always allow children to see things from another point of view. Children will play pretend, imagining a piece of paper is really a plate, and reimagining that a box is a spaceship. In the concrete stage, from 7 to 11, children start to draw conclusions from observations and apply logic, becoming more emotionally mature. In the formal operational stage, from adolescence to adulthood, we become adept at drawing logical conclusions from evidence, forming hypotheses about the future and deducing outcomes.
