Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Marion District Curriculum
The district uses the Common Core Standards for English language arts and math. The literacy standards are also tied to content areas such as social studies, science, and technical subjects. Because students need to have strong reading, writing, and speaking skills to excel in all content areas, there must be specific learning standards that integrate literacy into other subject areas.
Achievement in math has long been lacking in the United States as compared to other countries, so the new math standards incorporate fewer standards that are delved into much more deeply. The standards were drawn from international frameworks and several research-based models. They focus in on the skills inherent to numeracy/operations, algebra, geometry, probability, statistics and data analysis, as well as objectives for more advanced math.

Keeping Informed: Recent Marion Educational News
- A Leading Teacher - A kindergarten teacher was named the Marion School District Teacher of the Year in 2012. Her principal was not surprised, as she saw her as a natural-born teacher and leader—matching the Master’s Degree she received in Education Leadership. The outstanding educator always believed teaching was her calling and is constantly rewarded when she sees her young students light up when they learn something new. The six-year teacher has learned a great deal since her first year of teaching, when one of her students painted herself blue!
- Middle Schoolers Have a CSI Experience - In 2012, a group of Marion Middle School students were accepted to and attended the CSI: Forensic Science Camp at Arkansas State University for the first time. During the summer camp, the students learned the role science plays in investigations such as the fictional murder mystery that they studied. The students were exposed to robotics, DNA fingerprinting, forensic analysis, psychological profiling, and connections between crime scenes and courtrooms.
- Southern-Based Teachers Flock to Marion - In 2012, Marion Junior High School was one of the host sites for the Mid-South Teachers Teaching with Technology (T3) Regional Conference. Math and science teachers based in southern states such as Missouri, Arkansas, Tennessee, Texas and Mississippi attended the conference, which was partly sponsored by Texas Instruments. The conference focused on the use of Texas Instruments technology (graphic calculators, software, etc.) in math and science classrooms. Teachers of all experience and grade levels were encouraged to attend and were promised that they would learn something that they could apply in their own classrooms.
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: Diversifying Instruction for Diverse Students
Most of us excel as one of the following types of learners: visual, auditory, or kinesthetic (or perhaps a combination of two of them). Students may be artistically talented, musical, lovers of language, collaborative, etc. The point is, all students are different and, thus, learn differently. Perhaps the musically talented student will learn information best through songs related to the material. Teachers have an obligation to get to know each one of their students and incorporate various instructional strategies so that all students will be engaged and can succeed.
