Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Opelousas District Curriculum
Common Core provides educational standards in the areas of Mathematics and English and Language Arts and is geared toward helping students achieve the knowledge they need to be successful in college and in the workforce. In English and Language Arts, students focus on learning to be literate in the English language including reading, writing, speaking and listening. An emphasis is placed on the development of critical analysis and research skills. Students are introduced to a variety of reading materials including great literature and informational texts.
In Mathematics, students undergo a progressive math program with students building on their math skills year by year. Subjects include computational skills, problem solving, statistics, algebra, geometry and measurement. The goal is for students to be math literate by the time they graduate high school and able to apply their math skills in the workforce and in learning higher math.

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.

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.
