Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Raymore District Curriculum
In Language Arts, students learn to summarize a story, cite details in the order they happen, and identify different literary genres such as fables and myths. They also learn about the writing process, and students are introduced to and develop the five stages of writing: prewriting, draft, edit, revise and publish. They are introduced to persuasive writing and learn to respond to writing by showing how it relates to themselves, society and other literary pieces.
Students work to solve math problems within the eight mathematical practices, which span all the grade levels. Students learn how to analyze various math strategies to choose how to solve problems, and appreciate how mathematics is useful in their lives and the world around them. Science and technology go hand in hand, offering students an opportunity to learn about the world around them and prepare for a fast-paced tomorrow.

Raymore District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Common Core State Standards were adopted by 45 states in the US, including Missouri. The Common Core consists of more rigorous standards that expose students to more difficult text and require students to use higher order thinking skills to make decisions, generate ideas, and solve problems. Students begin their reading instruction in kindergarten as they learn to read, but quickly move into reading for information that helps them prove something. There is a greater emphasis on research, and students write persuasively.
We currently cover the following Raymore-area school district: Raymore-Peculiar R-11 School District.

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: How Can I Get My Child More Interested in Reading?
After children learn to read, they spend their lives reading to learn. Students figure out early on that there are different purposes for reading. Sometimes it’s to get information for a homework assignment, and sometimes it’s just because they like to get lost in the fascinating world of their favorite character. Sometimes they become attached to a series, or sometimes students find a topic that interests them and they just go with it. Not happening at your house? Try something new. Maybe an eReader instead of paper books will motivate your child. How about creating a reading nook somewhere in your child’s room or special area of the house? A small plastic swimming pool filled with blue and green bean bags makes a neat seat for reading. A special light mounted by your child’s bed that is intended for nighttime reading could make a difference. Expose your child to lots of text. Keep magazines, newspapers, and your own books in view around the home.
