Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Jennings District Curriculum
The district is implementing the Common Core State Standards that have been approved for use in all public schools in the State of Louisiana. In Language Arts, students learn the English language through learning to read, write, speak and listen. Students build on their skills year by year as the reading and writing assignments become more complex. Skills such as reading for evidence, research and critical analysis help students write well documented writing assignments. Reading material includes both informational text and literature to support learning and prepare for post-secondary academics.
In Mathematics, the focus on is on learning at a deep level such core math subjects as arithmetic, algebra, geometry, statistics and measurement. The goal is for students to be math literate by the time they graduate from high school with the ability to apply what they have learned to higher math or math problems encountered in real life.

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: Learn about Life on the Sea
There is nothing that brings historical happenings more alive than reading the personal words created in daily journal from someone who lived a long time ago. At the Girl on a Whaleship website created by the Martha’s Vineyard Museum, kids can read from a journal written by Laura Jernegan, a young girl who accompanied her family on a whaling ship. Written between 1868 and 1871, the journal started by the then six year old Laura chronicles the search for whales by Laura’s family including her father Captain Jared Jernegan as they sailed around Cape Horn looking for whales. In addition to the journal, there are photos of Laura and her family, letters, newspaper articles of the day, and ships logs that add to the personal account. A fascinating way to learn about whaling times and life on the sea in the late 1800’s.
