Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Minnetrista District Curriculum
The elementary English language arts curriculum in Minnetrista includes a study of reading literature. Children acquire the skills needed to locate and understand the key ideas and details of a literary work. To support their analysis of these elements, students learn to find explicit evidence in the text. Learners explore various types of literature, including fables, folktales, stories, and myths, and compare and contrast the manner in which they are structured and written in different cultures.
Arts students in Minnetrista have the opportunity to study dance as part of the visual and performing arts curriculum. High school dance students analyze the social and cultural influences on dance genres from around the world. Learners develop an understanding of how one’s personal or historical context can impact the manner in which a dance is choreographed and performed. The various functions of dance are explored as well. Students learn about the role of dance as art, as a ritual, and as a cultural expression.

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: Why Spatial Thinking Is Important
As education becomes ever more technological and virtual, the benefits of working in the “real world” can sometimes get lost. Yet having the ability to think spatially is an important skill students still need to have. Spatial thinking and learning lays the foundation for higher-ordered thinking skills such as evaluation, analysis, and problem solving. Furthermore, spatial activities, such as playing with letter blocks, can enhance a young child’s linguistic abilities. There are also mathematical and engineering benefits. Students that play with “real world” toys, like Lincoln Logs, demonstrate an improved ability to envision and construct 3-D objects.
