Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Olive Branch District Curriculum
Olive Branch Public Schools believe in beginning math from the first year that children enter school. Children begin by learning how to recognize numbers and the words that correspond to them. They also begin to learn how to measure by comparing items as longer, shorter, taller, and shorter. In middle school, topics evolve into areas such as learning about perimeter through story problems and through actual hands-on activities such as measuring the perimeter of the classroom. In high school, the students continue growing as they study geometry, or they can stretch their wings and try advanced algebra, trigonometry or calculus.
The Language Arts curriculum also begins as the children enter school. In the first year of school, the children learn the letters and sounds of the alphabet, as well as the words that represent colors. They also begin to learn sight words and words with two or three letters in them. As they continue into the intermediate years, they delve more into word-building activities, and discussion and analysis of text. They also learn about different types of literature, such as poetry, drama and journalism.

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 Help a Child with Mathematics
Many children become frustrated because they do not understand mathematics. There are several ways that parents can help with their problem. Parents need to make sure that the child understands what the math homework is asking them to do. This may involve reviewing the previous pages in the textbook. Another way to help is to create, or purchase, a set of flash cards. In order to advance in mathematics, children need to be able to master their facts. Parents also need to be available when the children are working on their homework. By being close-at-hand, it instills the importance of math.
