Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lafayette District Curriculum
In Math, students learn to use numeracy, measurement, geometry, algebra, probability and statistics at each grade level. As students increase in knowledge and skill, analyzing and solving real-world problems is a strong focus. Developing critical thinking skills and creative ways of problem-solving is a goal that crosses all subject areas in school. The ability to use mathematic models, quantitative and abstract reasoning are also emphasized.
Advanced reading and writing skills are expected by the time students reach middle and high school. The ability to read and understand various types of text, visual and digital graphics and text is supported and encouraged. Working in teams, project-based learning and independent activities all rely on the ability to take in and use information. Writing skills are expected in all subject areas. Students are taught to write for a variety of purposes. Writing to learn and writing to inform are foundational skills that are learned from the early grades and onward.

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.

Chalk Talk: Ways to Help Your Child Get Better Grades
The older a child gets, the more they need family support. Many times, parents and family members allow middle school or high school students to “be on their own” with school assignments, organization, and responsibility. Sometimes we don’t realize our children are struggling until we start to see grades fall in school. How can we stop this from happening?
Make sure your child has a planner in his or her binder. Many schools provide one at the start of each school year. Ask your child to write down the assignments from each class, every day in the planner. Check for assignments every day, when your child gets home from school. Speak with your child’s teachers and make sure assignments finished at home get back to school in a timely manner. This may mean checking backpacks and folders until your child has developed the habit of always turning in work on time. In order to achieve success, families and teachers must work together as each child grows.
