Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Paradise Valley District Curriculum
The English/Language Arts curriculum begins by teaching letter recognition and sounds. Students learn listening skills by hearing stories and testing comprehension by drawing pictures that go along with the stories and answering simple questions. They learn to write their names and to write the letters of the alphabet. The skills learned are built upon with each passing grade and students learn to use reading, writing and comprehension skills that help them to achieve academic success.
The Mathematics program, again, begins in kindergarten, teaching the basic recognition of numbers, along with counting and sorting skills. The basics of algebra and geometry are taught as students learn to recognize shapes, sorting into like groups. Using objects, students learn to add and subtract. These basic skills are added to each following grade, preparing students for the higher forms of math they will learn in high school. The critical thinking and problem solving skills learned while in school are meant to ensure student success in college and employment upon graduation.

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: Should I Homeschool My Child?
If you are considering homeschooling your child you need to first consider a few important facts. Ask yourself why you are thinking about homeschooling. Are you dissatisfied with the school system in your area? If so, have you discussed your issues with your child's teachers or with school administrators? Also, check the homeschooling options in your area. Is there a good homeschool organization that meets and provides peer relationships for your child? Some schools have implemented plans that allow some students to receive public education through the Internet at home. If you do decide on homeschooling you need to be prepared to follow district guidelines and to purchase the school materials from a reputable homeschool provider. You also need to consider the amount of your day that will have to revolve around homeschooling. In the end, the choice is yours, but always make informed decisions. You have to go into an endeavor like this with a plan in place and with some flexibility.
