Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Merritt Island Lakes District Curriculum
Language arts courses seek to improve writing, speaking, and listening skills, as well as ensure the proper application of language in a variety of situations. This is accomplished through the use of increasingly complex texts and passages, applied research, and collaborative discussion between peers. Students begin their education by learning about the basic components of standard English grammar, phonics, and how to answer questions using information provided in given texts. As they progress in their education, students will begin to analyze author viewpoints and more intricate representations of subjects.
Students also have the opportunity to choose from a variety of foreign languages to expand their awareness of other cultures and their history. Spanish, German, Italian, and French are offered at most schools and many offer non-Romance languages as well, including Japanese, Russian, and Turkish. Foreign language courses require students to engage in social interactions and use basic to advanced language skills to support the acquisition of the target language. A variety of media and texts are used to present vocabulary and other needed information.

As they advance in grade level, students move on to topics that incorporate more of the world, such as U.S. and World History, Geography, Economics, Sociology, and Anthropology.

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: How to Achieve a Great Score on the Math Section of the SAT/ACT
The math sections of the SAT and ACT cover four math topics: numbers and operations, algebra, geometry, and data analysis, statistics, and probability. The questions become more difficult as you move on and there are three sections total. Most of these questions are multiple-choice but there are a few fill-ins. Although strategies will help with this section of the test, it is crucial that you also know how to do the math that is required. Some formulas are provided on test day but you should already have these memorized, if possible. Going back and forth to the formulas and the questions is a good way to waste time. Although some resources may suggest spending a specific amount of time on each question, this should depend on the individual and the question they are answering. More time may be needed for more difficult questions. Time is one of the important factors when it comes to achieving a great score. Knowing how to analyze and find shortcuts to problems can be a great help when it comes to maximizing the use of your time.
