Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Miami Beach District Curriculum
The Mathematics curriculum is aligned with the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards. Students in elementary school learn to use numbers to represent quantities, solve word problems, recognize patterns, name 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional shapes, add, subtract, multiply, divide, use fractions and decimals, factor numbers, and make graphs. Middle school students learn how to use equivalents, use ratios and proportions, solve equations, calculate percentages, use exponents, interpret tables, graph x and y intercepts, and find square roots. In high school, students study algebra, geometry, advanced mathematics, pre-calculus, calculus, finances, and statistics from a more analytic approach.
The Science curriculum uses hands-on learning to develop scientific literacy among students so that they will become the innovators of the future. Middle school science covers biology, earth and space science, and physical science. The high school curriculum offers biology, chemistry, physical science, and physics, providing students with significant lab experiences.

Miami Beach District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum for Miami-Dade County Public Schools is intended to make students into life-long learners. This is accomplished by providing a high quality curriculum through meaningful learning experiences that engage students, teachers, parents, and members of the community. The Language Arts/Reading curriculum is based upon the Common Core State Standards. In K-5th, students learn to find key ideas within a text, use an ever-increasing vocabulary, make connections between ideas within a piece of literature, read proficiently, and communicate well through writing and speaking. In 6th-12th, students learn to use texts to support views and opinions, infer meaning from literary devices, make connections between the same information presented in different ways, appreciate different types of literature, write for different audiences and different goals, use appropriate grammar and mechanics, and research information.
We currently cover the following Miami Beach-area school districts: Miami-Dade County Public Schools.

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: Tips for the SAT's
The SAT is often viewed as a key that unlocks the doors to college, and college-bound students want to receive the best scores they possibly can. But how does one prepare for the SAT It is very important that you begin preparing for the SAT at least 6 months before your test date. Independent study and proper academic guidance can help ensure that students understand how the test works. Be sure to understand precisely what the directions and expectations are. Lastly, do not study the night before your exam. Just relax and get a good night of sleep.
