Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Las Vegas District Curriculum
Common Core creates very clear expectations for academic standards particularly in the areas of Mathematics and English and Language Arts. In English and Language Arts (ELA) students learn to read, write, listen and speak using correct English. This focus on literacy is applied to all academic courses including technology coursework. The program is progressive with students building on their skills grade by grade so they may develop advanced abilities.
In Mathematics, students are taught computational skills, algebra, geometry, statistics, probability and measurement. The curriculum in Mathematics is based on providing students with an in depth knowledge of these core subjects. Once students can master these basic math skills they should be able to demonstrate their math fluency with speed and be able to apply what they have learned to new problems and higher math. The goal for the districts is to have students who are able to use their skills in the work force and in higher education.

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.

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: Online History Resources
Sometimes children can have a hard time getting interested in history. To help kids gain a better understanding of American history and what life was like in colonial days try visiting the Colonial Williamsburg virtual visit and see history come alive. The date is May 15, 1776 and the delegates are gathered for the fifth Virginia Convention where they will soon vote on whether to seek independence from England. At the site you can explore Colonial Williamsburg in 3D, walk down the Duke of Gloucester Street, visit the capital building, see the revolutionary city, and go in the Armory, the taverns and the shops. This is a great way to illustrate what the architecture was like at the time, and really get a feel for what a colonial town looked like at the beginning of our country.
