Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lansing District Curriculum
Lansing schools’ English Language Arts instruction is based on Kansas College and Career Ready Standards For English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects that require students to develop reading, writing, comprehension, and fluency skills that can be used in all academic subject areas and fields of employment. The standards also encourage students to engage with and work to understand a wide range of texts and media. This integrated approach speaks to the goal of developing scientific and cultural literacy and the ability to independently gain knowledge in any subject.
Lansing schools’ math instruction is based on internationally benchmarked standards that require students to develop the ability to reason abstractly, use appropriate tools to solve math problems, communicate precisely, and construct arguments that explain mathematic processes. The standards encourage students to use these skills to solve every day problems.

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: The Importance of Vocational Training
Anybody who has read the Common Core Standards (CCS) knows that they are designed to produce “college- and career-ready” high school graduates. However, one look at the CCS and many schools’ curricula will tell a person that educators often focus on college readiness, with career readiness coming in a distant second. It’s time to for schools to realize that all students won’t and do not need to go to college. Many students will bypass college and enter well-paying and rewarding professions that do not require college educations. Schools can help prepare students to enter those fields by putting more effort and money into developing vocational training programs and shop classes. Yes, today’s schools are teaching the next generation of mathematicians, teachers, and doctors, but they are also teaching the next generation of plumbers, HVAC specialists, and carpenters who can use innovative scientific knowledge to create innovations in these fields.
