Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Miami District Curriculum
In English Language Arts, the elementary students are taught the writing process. The students use each step of the writing process, beginning with the brainstorming step. This step is used with a choice of writing “webs” to help organize the thought process. Once the students come up with a topic, they use their web to take that topic and divide it into specific areas to write about. When this is finished, they move on to the rough draft, and the teacher assists the student in organizing the writing piece and editing for content, spelling, and mechanics. Once this step is complete, the student then writes the final draft.
In Math, the elementary students are taught the many areas of measurement. Measurement concepts of time, length, weight, volume, and temperature are explored using hands-on materials, such as rulers, scales, containers, and clocks. Students also learn the units that are used in measurement, such as the metric and US measuring systems.

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.

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: Using a “Web” in the Writing Process
A “web” is a graphic organizer to help students outline their ideas for a writing essay. Graphic organizers can be charts, diagrams, or any other outline for the students to write down their prewriting in sections. These concept maps are used in the elementary grades to allow the students to see their thoughts and plan out their writing, and these writing webs make sure the students do not leave anything out of their essay. Many teachers utilize these in their teaching of the different steps of the writing process.
