Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Minneapolis District Curriculum
The Minneapolis Public Schools' Board of Education focuses on the MCA-II Math and Reading tests, and we will as well. In addition, we will help your child to achieve better scores on college entrance exams that the schools will ask them to take in preparation for life outside of the public school classroom. Finally, just as the school system does, we will help English Language Learning students to become proficient. This is a large goal of the school system and one that we can help your child to achieve.

Keeping Informed: Recent Minneapolis Educational News
- MPS Member Named "Outstanding American Indian Administrator" - On October 16, 2012, the director of the Indian Education Department earned this prestigious title. No one from an urban school district has ever earned this honor before and this showcases Ms. Grant's work as someone for the students of Minneapolis to look up to in terms of hard work and acceptance of diversity.
- Training to Support Student Success - Community Education will host the "Community Academic Series," which can help students, their parents and families and members of the community to be more successful academically and to support the academic initiatives of those around them. This is an opportunity to bring the community together for the common cause of learning and encouraging students to always attend classes, cutting down on truancy and therefore helping the school system as a whole to be more successful.
- Students to Compete in Math Competition - This past April, students in the 5th and 6th grades in Minneapolis Public Schools competed in the annual math competition, further cementing the school system's focus on academic achievement, especially in math, an area in which the country as a whole can stand to improve. Over 350 students from all over Minneapolis participated and answered questions that lined up clearly with the mathematical standards set forth by the school system's advanced curriculum.
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 Teach Financial Education in Public Schools
Many public school systems are now offering services to teach children how to manage their finances as they plan for life after graduation. These services can also help students to learn how to look for jobs or decide on careers, as well as invest intelligently and understand the financial markets as a whole. The hope is that in doing so, students can take care of themselves efficiently as they transition into adulthood and will understand the larger issues that affect the country, financially, as a whole. Workshops on balancing checking accounts, investing in the stock market and IRAs and also basic accounting are being offered all over the country to assist students with the very real issues that will face them when they graduate.
