Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Kirkwood District Curriculum
A primary focus of the Common Core State Standards is mathematics. Students gain a thorough understanding of mathematics and learn how to use math in real-life situations. Much of mathematics instruction involves reasoning, abstracting, and identifying patterns in the world around us. Science instruction continues with the Next Generation Science Standards. These challenging standards lead students to integrate technology and science to learn how the world around them works, and how to find answers to questions that pose real problems for society.
The Language Arts curriculum brings together the areas involved with literacy and communication, emphasizing language development, use of proper grammar, and the ability to decode the meaning of new vocabulary. Critical reading comprehension and analysis skills, the ability to evaluate information, and being able to locate and synthesize information into a students own work are all goals of the Language Arts curriculum.

Kirkwood District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Kirkwood School District continues to view curriculum as a priority. As the state standards are replaced by Common Core State Standards, the goal of the Kirkwood School District remains the same – students will get the best education possible. A main focus of the Common Core State Standards is reading informational text within the content areas, which is very different from reading literature. All teachers in all subject areas are involved in this process of curricular planning.
We currently cover the following Kirkwood-area school district: Kirkwood R-VII School District.

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.
