Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Nixa District Curriculum
In Math, students are expected to use mental math and estimation strategies to solve them. They learn to find factors for numbers up to 100 and use numbers or shapes to represent patterns with a given rule. They even use two and three dimensional shapes to model and solve real world scenarios. Such skills provide the basis in algebra, geometry, and data analysis that they will learn more about in high school.
The Science curriculum is designed from the Next Generation Science Standards, and brings science concepts and technology together to give students the necessary knowledge and tools to explore real issues in today’s society. Students learn content knowledge in earth science, biology, chemistry and physics, and then get to explore the phenomenon they learn about through experiments, and even learn how to design their own experiments. They also learn how to formulate and test hypotheses and the skills to communicate their lab results and scientific findings.

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: Preventing Summer "Brain Drain"
Whether it’s a winter-time break, spring break, or summer break, students who find themselves outside of their regular academic routine oftentimes forget some of the information learned during the school year. If you are looking for ways to prevent the loss of learning, you have lots of options. There are academic websites that help students to reinforce the skills taught in school, including ABCMouse and Starfall. There are also lots of free or inexpensive Apple and Android apps out there that reinforce specific skills, many organized by grade level. Search for exactly what you want your student to practice with – “2nd grade” or “Geometry.” The best thing you can do for your child over the summer to prevent learning gaps from forming? Hire a tutor. A real live person can offer so much more than an electronic device.
