Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lafayette District Curriculum
The Science curriculum includes a wide spectrum of topics with a structured teaching program that combines theoretical study with practical experiences, which enable students to understand the subject. For instance, as part of the physics portion of the elementary science curriculum, students learn about mechanics and motion. Students observe how an object’s motion changes depending upon the forces acting upon it, and discuss gravity’s influence on how objects behave in motion. The objectives of the study of mathematics are best achieved by a diversity of learning experiences, including those directly related to curriculum.
Lafayette School's English Language curriculum focuses on proper use of language in speaking and composition writing and appreciation for various types of literature. The basics of the writing process are studied at each grade level. The teachers make great efforts to help students struggling with the subjects. Their philosophy is to motivate students to learn and actually enjoy the learning process.

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: Learning Another Language
Opposed to the general belief that some people have an aptitude for learning foreign languages, recent studies conclude that there is no compelling evidence for this premise. The good news is that anyone can learn a foreign language quickly if they follow the right technique. The most-tried and tested method is the immersion technique in which students learn a new language through intensive exposure to it. Students are thus able to pick key phrases and words and learn grammar.
