Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Rapid City District Curriculum
In Mathematics, students are taught at an early age the use of number concepts, skills, geometry, and probability, and they use manipulatives and technology within their instruction to achieve the knowledge needed to succeed and be prepared for the higher math concepts later on in the upper grades. In high school, students study equations, relationships and other areas of algebra, spatial relations and proofs in geometry, and a range of methods for analyzing quantitative data.
In Language Arts, primary teachers engross the children in reading and writing through the use of read aloud texts, fiction books, nonfiction books, guided reading instruction, teaching the phonetic skills needed to spell correctly, modeling correct reading and writing, manipulative word study, and independent reading. Technology is integrated throughout the curriculum to give students a tool for learning, a means of communication, and a topic to study.

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.

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 Role of the Elementary Science Teacher
The elementary science teacher sets forth the foundation for discovery learning and thinking in a scientific way. Students must be guided and instructed on how to think this way, and how to communicate, ask questions, analyze information from their experiments, and reach purposeful conclusions. The elementary science teacher begins this process of thinking so that the students can continue to develop and thrive, and be prepared for the higher-level thinking skills that will be required later on in one's education.
