Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Rainy River District Curriculum
Each academic subject has a framework that describes what students are expected to learn each year. These frameworks guide subject learning from kindergarten through graduation by starting with fundamentals and moving students towards deeper conceptual understanding. This occurs because students access their prior knowledge through reflective thinking which opens the door to deeper analytic abilities. By doing this, students develop important critical thinking skills from each subject which will support their future learning.
There are opportunities for learning in the different types of assignments that teachers give. When students are able to work on project-based learning, they develop the ability to plan and sequence tasks, make modifications and changes to works in progress, learn about time management, and become aware of the work they most like to do. Students may pursue independent studies during the later middle school years and in high school. These offer the chance to combine subjects and produce original work under the guidance of a faculty advisor.

Rainy River District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The schools in Rainy River use a curriculum that is standards-based, internationally focused, and student-centered. It combines core academics with non-traditional subjects and allows students plenty of opportunities to work on independent projects, conduct community service initiatives, participate in the arts, and develop personal leadership skills. There are programs designed to aid in character development and students have opportunities to experience their education in alternative settings. The goal is that students develop a strong foundation of knowledge and are able to use it in the programs designed to engage students’ interests.

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: Mistakes or Opportunities
Students are taught early that there are right and wrong answers. This can lead to stress or lessen a child's feelings of self-worth. Parents can help children by helping the child see that making a mistake is not a failure. Many discoveries have been made by people making mistakes. If parents help a child see that the error helped the child learn something about a topic. Children need to be reminded of how much they have learned in their lives, many times by trying something again and again until they learned a better way of doing something. In order to learn something new, they may have to be open to exploring the options that are open to them.
