Educating Our Parents: Understanding the New Orleans District Curriculum
The English Language Arts curriculum is based on the Common Core Standards, teaching students how to read, write, listen and speak. Within this reading and writing component, students learn how to evaluate information from websites and other resources. Reading literature and informational texts require students to read and understand increasingly more difficult text as students move through elementary, middle and high school, developing the analytic skills necessary for college work.
Common Core Standards for Math include the number system, counting, measurement, geometry and algebra. Students learn how to make sense out of mathematical problems, and think creatively to solve them. They learn how to use mathematic models and systems and learn how to abstract data. Understanding mathematical processes and evaluating results is the focus of thee Common Core State Standards so students feel prepared for college and career pursuits.

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: Digital Schools
The Orleans Parish Schools are part of the Louisiana focus on preparing students for the 21st century by incorporating technologies into the school day. Students will become comfortable learning through smart phones, tablets, laptops and other similar devices that allow them to continue their education from any location and at any time. By the 2014-2015, Louisiana schools are expecting to be “technology-rich” in course offerings, assessments and communication. As our world continues to grow and change, so will the technology through which students will learn and collaborate.
