Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Mountain Brook District Curriculum
In Language Arts, students are engrossed in print at the beginning, and advance literary work upon graduation. The range in between is great, and throughout the student's school career at Mountain Brook they are taught to read and write through high-quality teaching techniques, such as guided reading instruction, following the writing process, basal as well as county-wide reading instruction, and hands-on instruction in literacy centers. Students are shaped into critical thinkers and readers and writers, and Mountain Brook Schools believes that being a solid reader will lead to success in all other subjects.

Mountain Brook District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Following the Alabama State Standards for learning, Mountain Brook Schools has a district-consistent scope and sequence, or pacing guide, for each grade level. Having a consistent scope and sequence helps all teachers in the district plan and educate accordingly to the high Alabama Standards, all while teaching the same concepts at the same time as another instructor at a different school (but on the same grade level). If a student were to move from school to school for some reason, they would not miss a beat and would continue on with learning the same concepts.
We currently cover the following Mountain Brook-area school districts: Mountain Brook Schools.

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: What are "Teachers as Learners?"
When a person performs a task that he is experienced at doing, he also learns from that task and is able to look back and reflect professionally on their performance. Teachers are teachers, as we know, but to be an effective teacher, one has to learn from it. Good teachers look back and reflect on the areas of teaching that were intertwined within the lesson such as, the content, the delivery method of instruction, and the guided and independent practice of the students. Educators must be familiar with the current trends in curriculum and instruction. They attend conferences, and then bring back the information they learned and share it with the faculty. Teachers are always learning as they go.
