Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Milwaukee District Curriculum
Milwaukee Schools adhere to the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics as well. There is strong support readily available to students and teachers alike as focus is centered on preparation for the next level. It is the goal to teach the students to learn and retain throughout their education. As students are nearing the end of their education, they are being prepared for college and career paths.
Beginning in Kindergarten, children are taught the foundations of mathematics by recognizing and conceptualizing the value of numbers. As the child grows, there is emphasis on mathematical procedures combined with hands-on learning in the subjects of Geometry, Algebra, Probability, and Statistics. In Algebra, high school students are expected to develop the skills to evaluate and interpret algebraic expressions and statements. In Geometry, students should be comfortable with the concepts of similarity, trigonometric ratios, right triangles, circle theorems, and geometric equations.

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: Acknowledging our Future
Compassion and encouragement are not subjects that kids are graded on. However, a pivotal tool that can boost morale and create successful citizens is positive reinforcement. Henry Tyson, a superintendent at one of Milwaukee's area schools, holds the gift of encouragement and uses it daily. Through the KIPP approach, teachers and students are held to high expectations in a highly structured program. There is a much needed, strong emphasis on parent involvement and good behavior. The model suggests that if you are good to your students and reassure them that what they are doing in school DOES matter, they will strive to be the best that they can be. Thus far, this model has proven to be effective and is spreading to other schools who witness the transformations.
