Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Key West District Curriculum
The district has developed learning sequences for each grade level and content area, providing a list of standards and an overview of the expectations for learning over the course of the school year. Monroe School District has also made public PowerPoint presentations, documents, and videos that were a part of a workshop for administrators on implementing and using the Common Core Standards.
One focus in the math curriculum is the expressions and equations strand. Students develop an understanding of each part of an expression, including the sum, factor, quotient, and coefficient. Students also learn how to evaluate expressions, including how to determine the specific values for their variables. Inverses are explored, as are positive and negative values for fractions and decimals. Students also study the properties of operations, and learn how to use them to generate equivalent expressions. Procedures to simplify expressions are introduced as well.

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: Service Projects in Schools
Having students give back to their community and understand the importance of doing so is very powerful. High schools often require students to complete a certain amount of community service hours and create a culminating project on their experience(s). In these situations, it is essential that students understand why their service is so important and not just that it is a requirement for school. Exposing children to community service projects at a young age may make them more likely to volunteer at the own accord as teens. Although elementary schools generally do not mandate this for students, teachers can find simple ways to give back. One such way is for students to collect unused or recycled items to donate to a charity or cause. Classes can invite families, teachers, and students in other classrooms to contribute. If it is difficult for students to contribute money or items, they may be able to donate their time; perhaps they can travel to a local senior living center and talk with residents.
