Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Metairie District Curriculum
Literacy skills are the foundation for all learning, which means students are taught how to read and understand various kinds of text, both visual and graphic. Writing to learn and inform helps students to share their learning and to be college and career ready by the end of high school. Research and presentation skills are also key components of the curriculum and add to the ways students have to express themselves in writing and speech.
At each grade level, math students learn numeracy, how to use mathematical operations, measurement, data, algebra and geometry. As students grow in knowledge and skill, the concepts they are expected to understand become more challenging. Students begin with computation, perform operations, and understand relationships and equations. Ultimately, students use those skills to solve real-world problems, both individually and in teams.

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: How to Prepare Your Child to Read!
Let your child see you read! In addition to reading with your child every day, let him or her see you read to yourself, in various situations. For instance, make sure your child sees you reading about your world, whether that is online, in a newspaper, or a magazine. Show and explain to your child why you are doing it, how you read, and why you chose that particular format (newspaper, internet, etc.) to read. When a child sees his or her family reading, the child makes a connection to reading and learning. You are your child’s first teacher, who guides his or her learning as your little one grows into an elementary student!
