Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Kent District Curriculum
The Math curriculum focuses on critical thinking and problem solving. Students follow the Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2 sequence and all three courses are required for graduation. Students apply the principles and algorithms learned in these classes to real-world problems. Students are required to take three years of math for graduation from the district, and four years of math if they plan to attend college after graduation.
The Science curriculum uses the big ideas that are found in science and its inquiry processes. Students learn how to critically analyze claims and information, collect and use data, write research reports, and report findings. Students must take Biology in their sophomore year and any other lab science course of their choice for graduation. Students learn about topics such as Cell structure and function is studied and learn the difference between eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells, as well as the structure and function of cell organelles.

In addition, the district is beginning to implement both the Common Core Standards and the Next Generation Science Standards.

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: Developing Public Speaking Skills
Many have experienced the nerves that happen before giving a speech, there are ways to help a child overcome this. First of all, help them identify the theme that is to be covered in the speech and then look for evidence that it truly is. This will help to build confidence in the material. Then pull in some friends that will have the same assignment. Ask each one to practice before the others. This will give the child familiar faces to focus on when giving the speech in class, plus the more practice they have in front of an audience, the more the fears will disappear. Part of public speaking includes knowing how to give and receive feedback. Gently, ask the child some information about what they are talking about and then tell them good things and constructive help regarding their speech. Finally, practice taking a deep breath, or two, before giving the speech to clear the mind and calm the nerves. Help them receive a good night’s sleep, a good breakfast and wish them good luck.
