Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Kenner District Curriculum
The state of Louisiana adopted the Common Core State Standards in 2010 and the Jefferson Parish Public School District expects to have the curriculum fully implemented by 2014. In Mathematics, students are taught core computational skills, algebra, geometry, statistics, measurement and proportional reasoning. Students build on their math skills year by year as the coursework increases in difficulty. The focusing on a finite number of math subjects allow students to gain a high level of competency in core subjects.
In English and Language Arts, students follow a progressively complex program to develop reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. Students are expected to become literate in expository, narrative and creative writing. In an effort to prepare students for the workforce they are provided with informational text and literature in reading materials. The development of interpretative and critical analysis skills, and academic research skills are included in the curriculum.

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.
