Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lamar District Curriculum
Understanding of a second language is an important goal that the Lamar School District has for each student. French, Spanish, and German are offered and provide students an opportunity to expand their understanding of other cultures, while improving their ability to communicate with others. Communicating in written and verbal forms is emphasized in three primary areas: interpersonal, interpretive, and presentation. Students learn how to understand short and complex exchanges, as well as common social courtesies and gestures.
To prepare students for life after their secondary education is complete, the Lamar School District offers a careers-based curriculum. Students acquire an understanding of their personal traits, interests, and aptitudes that will help them identify a well-suited career path. Job search skills, interview skills, and resume writing are undertaken as well. Goal setting is an important aspect of the curriculum as it pertains to educational and career pursuits.

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: Benefits of Learning a Second Language
Learning a second language provides children, and adults, with a host of benefits that go well beyond an improved ability to communicate with people from other areas. Studies have shown that people that who learn additional languages have improved brain health, including growth and development of neural connections. Adding a second, or even a third, language to one’s repertoire also improves understanding of one’s first language, with increased understanding of grammar, spelling, and sentence structure. Also, when a person begins thinking about college and career goals, the important skills of speaking a second language may come in very handy. Lastly, language acquisition gives people insight into the cultures and traditions of people dissimilar from themselves. This increases appreciation and respect for the way that people live their lives in other parts of the world.
