Educating Our Parents: Understanding the McCook District Curriculum
From primary to secondary school, Mathematics is a key element in the schooling of each student. Standards begin at the number system, with the students communicating and showing a variety of ways to solve problems, reason, and make real-world connections. Applying mathematical concepts across all disciplines is required. Counting, reading, and writing numbers from 0-20, and putting them in ordinal sequence, and the beginning of adding numbers and subtracting numbers is where it all begins in the primary grades.
Focusing on the Reading standards of learning, as students must be literate to succeed in all subject areas, the standards focus on the development of phonological awareness by reading, writing, and speaking. Speech patterns and rhyming are explored, and the blending of the individual phonemes of words, single and multi-syllabic, is mastered. Students are able to use these skills to decode broader meanings within texts and develop both analytic and interpretative thinking abilities.

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: What is Phonological Awareness?
Each word is made up of individual sounds, or phonemes. When students enter school for the first time, they explore the sounds of the words. A one-syllable word is stretched out and the individual sounds are listened to by the students. To fluent readers, this is very simple, but to a very young child learning to read and write, this can be difficult. Listening for the sounds in isolation has to be taught by the teacher in order for the children to begin reading and spelling words. Phonological awareness is a very large part of kindergarten and first grade, and once it is mastered, the students are on their way to being great readers and writers!
