Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Minden District Curriculum
In English and Language Arts, students learn the core skills of reading, writing, listening, speaking, skills that are then built with progressively more difficult assignments. Reading closely and reading for evidence is emphasized for both literature and informational text. In writing students are encouraged to write using their own experiences for creative writing and to develop good research skills in writing reports.
In Mathematics students focus on basic math skills including computation, algebra, geometry, proportional reasoning, statistics, and measurement. Students are expected to learn when and how to use a math tool to solve specific math problems. They are also expected to apply what they have learned to more difficult math. The goal is for students to be math literate by the time they graduate high school with the knowledge they need to be successful in the workforce and college.

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: American Memory
Make history real for students with the American Memory website available through the Library of Congress. American Memory is a site that houses all sorts of copies of primary documents and historical items that allow visitors to view items such as George Washington’s Diaries page by page or early copies of American advertising, or documents from the women’s suffrage movement. The site includes documents from numerous areas of human experience including African American history, architecture, government, law, technology, war, religion, presidents, Native American history, the performing arts, and geography. History from a textbook can be dull and divorced from real life. Having access to letters, diaries, original photos, and historical maps can make history personal and real and can encourage students to continue learning about the history of their country on their own.
