Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Pierre District Curriculum
According to the No Child Left Behind Act, all students must reach Adequate Yearly Progress in the core subject areas. In Reading, students are taught by highly qualified educators, as well as other members of the faculty, such as the reading specialist, Title One reading teacher, Special Education teacher, and Gifted Education instructor. Instructional assistants are also used to help those who need more assistance with reading comprehension strategies, building vocabulary and language skills, or to challenge those who exceed the reading requirements.
In Math, resources are also used. Math Coaches help the teachers with showing them the best practices and methods to use in the classroom, differentiated instruction is used (as many students are on various levels in mathematics), instructional assistants are assigned small groups of children, if needed, and of course Gifted and Special Education teachers are used in this subject area as well. It takes many people, besides the actual classroom teacher, to help the students achieve AYP for the state.

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: Preparatory Courses in Technology
Many students wish to attend a trade school instead of going to a four-year (or more!) college or university. This is very important, as we as a society need these professions and the professionals who work these types of occupations. There are many classes that students can take in the tech field, as well as careers to choose from, such as: automotive tech, computer technician, electrician, radio and television production, health occupation worker, building trades, machinist, and much more. These occupations are vital to our country and world, and students can get a jump-start on them in high school!
