Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Leawood District Curriculum
The elementary curriculum provides students with the lasting foundation in reading, writing, math, science, and social studies that carry them through their later years. Students are introduced to many topics to see how each subject consists of distinct threads, and then deepen their abilities. For instance, when students begin to write, they master basic sight words, their names, and days of the week. By the end of elementary school, they are able to write short stories with these developing skills.
In middle and high school, students may elect to take courses in architecture and engineering, performing arts, visual arts, family and consumer science, business and computers, and world languages. Blue Valley also offers K-12 enrichment programs and mentoring, AVID, the CAPS program (Center for Advanced Professional Studies), and the ACT/SAT Prep Program to prepare students to enter the workforce and higher education. ACCESS teaches life skills to children with moderate to severe disabilities.

Leawood District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum of Blue Valley Schools closely follows the Community Strategic Plan. Professional Learning Communities within schools (PLCs) collaboratively identify the curriculum that must be taught as it correlates to the Common Core Standards in each subject area. PLCs further suggest formative and summative assessments to demonstrate student proficiency, prescribe intervention strategies to ensure all students experience success, and identify differentiation strategies to meet the needs of all learners.
We currently cover the following Leawood-area school district: Blue Valley Schools.

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: Building a Reading Relationship with Your Elementary Child
When your child enters elementary school, spending time reading with your child is one of the most important things you can do for his/her development. Visit your child’s school and work with teachers and librarians to select books with your child that are appropriate to his or her reading level. It is important to establish a Lexile reading level so you may help your child choose books that fall in his range. When reading with your child, ask questions about the book to ensure comprehension and to build a “reading relationship”. Ask who his/her favorite character is and why. Ask about the character’s conflict and make predictions about what will happen next. If a book is beyond your child’s reading level, read with your child until he or she feels comfortable in attempting to read it on his/her own. Make sure not to discourage the child from reading it as we don’t want a child’s interest in reading to ever be diminished. By being a reader yourself and modeling your love of reading during these formative years, your child will begin to see the value of reading and the joy you experience from a good book. Share these experiences with your child, who will take your lead and see that reading is a fun activity!
