Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Madras District Curriculum
Kindergarten math skills consist of reading, writing, ordering and comparing numbers from 1 to 31, measuring objects with nonstandard tools, and reading simple pictographs. In first grade, students use pictures, objects and symbols to add and subtract one digit numbers. Second grade students learn to count by 2’s and 5’s up to 100, to count backwards from 100, the place value of 3 digit numbers, and how to add and subtract with and without regrouping and they expand on their knowledge of measurement and geometry.
During middle school, students hone their ability in numerical operations, relationships and patterns, geometry and measurement, and understanding how to interpret quantitative data. High school students learn Algebra and Geometry in 9th and 10th grades. This still includes the practice and extension of measurement and data analysis skills learned in previous grades. If students wish to pursue a more rigorous course load, trigonometry and pre-calculus are available.

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: Teaching Students How to Take Notes
Learning how to take good notes is an essential part of being a strong student. During middle and high school, most students will need to learn how to take notes using a paper and pen, although some may also have the opportunity to take notes using a computer. There are advantages to both, and students should master both skills. What students can expect in learning to take notes also depends on the subject matter. In the case of science notebooks, elementary students may be able to record brief observations from activities or experiments on their own as they become used to the process. When students reach middle school, they will have to be more independent in their note-taking; middle school teachers will often provide outlines that students fill in that help steer them in the right direction. By high school, they likely will have to take notes completely on their own.
