Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Pocahontas District Curriculum
The district—in conjunction with its K-12 curriculum specialist—believes in a balanced, rigorous curriculum containing literacy, math, social studies, science, technology, and the arts. Students learn content and skills that relate to their lives and futures, and this helps them understand the intertwining curriculum. They receive instruction that is both hands-on and minds-on and is appropriate for their interests and developmental level. The literacy curriculum is research-based; has students reading, writing, speaking, and listening.
The district also emphasizes learning in the arts, in the areas of music, fine and performing arts so that students are introduced to these cultural values and are able to develop an ability to understand and appreciate different forms of art. Students also have opportunities to do creative writing and contribute it to school-wide publications or submit original work to literary contests. Although core academics are emphasized, the district also recognizes that students need programming tied to personal interests.

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.

Chalk Talk: The Importance of Knowing a Student’s Reading Level
Numbers do not always paint the full picture, but one number that is essential to find out is a child’s reading level in terms of grade level equivalency. For example, if the number is 2.1, the student is reading at a level that is equivalent to a student in the first month of second grade. First, the actual reading level must be determined so that teachers and parents understand how many months or years behind the student is in reading. Second, although students may choose books at the level their peers are reading, they should select books at the grade level at which they can independently read. It is important for teachers to set up classroom libraries with books at a wide range of levels; this way, students will not feel as embarrassed to choose a picture book instead of a chapter book. Of course, the goal is to move students to higher levels of reading ability, but it is critical that they practice reading regularly in order to improve, and they cannot do this if they are reading books way above their level.
